About Brad Paisley

With seven gold albums released between 1999 and 2010, Brad Paisley has turned himself into the guy we all identify with. His wife He assumes the role of the ordinary man swamped by the modern world, technology and life in general. In the real world, his wife, Kimberly Paisley is known to fans through her TV series, "According To Jim" and the two "Father Knows Best" Movies.

Videos and guitar licks

After superb opening sets by Justin Moore and Darius Rucker, Brad opened with "Water" and proceeded to engage the audience with his genuine concern that they go home happy. There are two outstanding elements in the average Brad Paisley live concert: His astounding virtuosity on the guitar and his duets with video projections of other artists. Nearly every song in this concert had a video to go with it. A standout in this department was "Whiskey Lullaby" with a projection of Alison Krauss.

The Paisley rapport

Brad Paisley's use of over-sized technology could easily brand him as a showman with a big budget and little talent. However, this misconception is put to rest by the spectacle of the man constantly guitar-soloing as he struts from microphone to microphone, making every member of the audience his best friend.

Highlights of the night

The highlights of the evening were Paisley's duet with a super-sized video of Andy Griffith on "Waiting On A Woman" and "Letter To Me" with Brad accompanying himself on an acoustic guitar. A final word If we were to give Brad Paisley a rating, we would have to give him top marks for making people eager to watch each of his live performance.

Review: Tom Waits' Hold On

The Tom Waits song 'Hold On' is taken from the 1999 album 'Mule Variations'. Although nowhere near as experimental or wilfully obtuse as some of his other work, both before and after, the song shows just what a good melody Waits is capable of writing. The song actually comes across as optimistic and reasonably sunny, but it also has a darker side.
