Guide Review - Brad Paisley - 'Mud on the Tires'
Once more, Brad puts out an album of traditional country music showcasing his fantastic guitar playing, great songwriting (he wrote or co-wrote 10 of the 16 songs on the album), and his mellow singing voice.
Another thing that can be said about Mud on the Tires is variety. While some artists have maybe 3-4 hits and mostly filler, or cuts that just won't make it on radio, Brad has created a strong album where the majority of the songs could be radio hits. I think one of the things I like best about Brad's songs is that so many people can relate to his song subjects. Then, there are the humorous songs. Brad's sense of humor really adds another dimension to his music.
As on his previous two albums, Brad adds a gospel song to his album. On this album he adds "Farther Along." Brad dedicates the song to his manager's wife, Carolyn, who lost her battle with cancer in 2002.
If you enjoyed Brad's first two albums, this one will surely become another favorite.
