...a song that genuinely is saying something and not just another "I love the south now give me my guns, my truck and my moonshine and lets go." That, my friends is why This Is Country Music.
The stats on Brad Paisley‘s ‘Southern Comfort Zone’ video are impressive before one even gets to the first scenes. Eight countries covered in eight days. Ten thousand miles traveled, 57 pints of beer gulped down.
Teaming up with Brad Paisley for this tour is exciting for everyone at Cracker Barrel because he is one of the most highly-regarded modern-day entertainers, and his connection with country music fans, our brand, and our guests is such a phenomenal fit.
It’s misleading to say that Paisley has never played better, because he’s always played this way — with mastery, confidence, daring and good humor.
You hate to start a review off with something as PR Pollyanna as, ‘Hello, Grammy No. 4!’ But after listening to Brad Paisley’s latest ... ‘Hello, Grammy No. 4!’
