Brad Paisley for the Soul


I already know what you’re thinking…”Brad Paisley for the soul…huh?!?” Hear me out.

Maybe it’s just me, but Brad Paisley songs remind me of that book series that was popular in the 1990s, “Chicken Soup for the Soul”. Like the books, Paisley’s songs usually have a message, or a moral to them. Honor your parents, cherish the moments you spend with your children, tell your wife you love her everyday, appreciate everything you do because it could be the last time you do it….see what I mean?

Don’t get me wrong, I think Brad Paisley is a great musician and a wonderful person. He’s funny, talented, and really does seem to believe in the message of his music. I just feel that his music gets a little sappy at times, which is okay, but I would love to see Brad let loose and rock a killer guitar solo just once!

I will admit, when I hear a Brad Paisley song, by the times it ends my heart seems a little more full, I feel better physically, and a huge sense of warmth is all around me. You know what else makes me feel like that? A big bowl of homemade chicken noodle soup. Coincidence? I think not.
