As five-time nominee and 2010 CMA entertainer of the year, it’s no surprise that Brad Paisley knows how to command an audience.
During the CMAs last week, Paisley sang a demo of “This is Country Music,” which was scheduled to be released with his next album. The reaction on Twitter from country fans was all love:
Mikexner: New favorite song - Brad Paisley, This is Country Music and We Do...is that what it's called? Awesome.
Samfoster_ks: Brad Paisley’s song says it all – country music is “your life in a song.” #CMA
Ddc_macfan: Brad Paisley just killed it at the #CMA’s! Love that song!
It spoke to fans so much that Paisley announced via Twitter on Friday that the song is quickly being remixed and will be released as his next single.
“And wait till you hear the record Frank cut on it. I don't almost break down crying on this vocal:),” he posted.
Paisley is well known for true-to-life lyrics, as seen in his other hits “Alcohol,” “Online” and “Waitin’ On A Woman.” And this song, co-written by Paisley and Chris DuBois, is no different.
You're not supposed to say the word "cancer" in a song.
Well you like to drink a cold one on the weekend and get a little loud
Expect to hear the single on country radio in the near future. In the meantime, feel free to join us in watching Paisley’s CMA performance over and over again on YouTube.
