Brad Paisley just wrapped up a European tour where he played eight countries in twelve days. He’s also set to host and executive produce a prime time variety special on ABC, and star in a comedy series for Amazon. Other than that, he’s not busy at all.
The 47-year-old country star is also a well-known friend to veterans, making it a point to honor the military during every concert of his 2017 Weekend Warrior Tour. Paisley said the moments during his shows when military members saluted while being spotlighted were highlights for him.
Paisley has been making music for the masses since he released his debut album in 1999, and has a slew of number one songs to his credit. The man who can write and sing a ballad as well as anyone has twelve studio LPs of material to choose from, but if we’re narrowing down his best tracks to a half dozen, these are the ones we’re going with.
