Country guitarist Brad Paisley has released a new album today, 5th Gear. Additionally, his new single, “Ticks”, went to number 1 this week on the country singles’ chart, so Brad’s had a pretty good week so far.
Although I live near the Country Music capital of the world, I’m not a big fan of country music, so until a few years ago, I wasn’t aware of how good a guitarist Brad Paisley is. My friend David told me that I should check him out, and I’m glad I did! Paisley’s a very talented guitarist and is well known for his Crook Custom “paisley” guitars.
I’m looking forward to checking out 5th Gear. He usually includes an instrumental track or two showcasing his guitar talents. He’s also pretty funny, and his albums are generally pretty entertaining. Brad will be touring behind this album this summer, so if he comes through your area, I’d recommend catching the show.
