Biography

Brad Paisley, an established country music performer, was born on October 28, 1972 in Glen Dale. Music was introduced to Brad when he was a little kid. It happened when he received his first guitar on his eighth birthday as a present. Two years later, the boy gave his first performance at one of the local churches. Soon, Paisley became a member of the band called C-Notes that was notable for the peculiar lineup. Apart from the twelve-year old Brad, the other participants were far older than fifty. After a concert at Rotary Club, Brad was personally invited to sing and play at the Jamboree USA show aired by one of the state’s leading radio stations. The young artist did so well that he later became a regular guest there introducing other musicians. After the high school, the lad entered a university and during his studying there he developed solid connections with the people working in the music industry. They helped him distribute his demos to find a sound recording company.

As a result, Brad Paisley signed up a contract with Arista to issue in 1999 his first long player entitled Who Needs Pictures. This impressive record featured such noticeable tracks as He Didn't Have to Be, and We Danced. Critics appraised this work highly and emphasized Brad’s ability to unite different types of country into one beautiful piece. Shortly afterwards, the musician started cooperating with the female performer Chely Wright and recorded with her a song called Hard to Be a Husband, Hard to Be a Wife for the Backstage at the Grand Ole Opry collection. In the years to come, this duet managed to make up a streak of powerful songs, some of them to be found on Wright’s album Never Love You Enough. In 2001, Paisley released his sophomore full-length record, Part II. This one spawned a big hit called Two People Fell in Love, a Top 5 song. But there were even better compositions like I'm Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin' Song), a chart-topper, and Wrapped Around, the one left one step away from the top. In 2003, the single I Wish You'd Stay, also taken from this album made it to Top 10.

In the beginning of August 2005, Paisley downloaded his comments on the anticipated new album. Called Time Well Wasted, it arrived two weeks later and failed to appear in the leading group of pop music releases, yet it became number one in the country chart. In 2006, the musician widened his discography with the compilation Brad Paisley Christmas featuring both his original songs and covers for the compositions by other performers. In 2007, the singer offered another studio work, 5th Gear in 2007, notable for the hit Ticks. In a year, Paisley presented his subsequent album, Play, mostly composed by instrumental material based on his unsurpassed guitar performance. Working hard on and on, Brad Paisley delighted his supporters with the 2009 release of the new studio effort named American Saturday Night. The musician’s discography was enlarged by the wonderful compilation album Hits Alive in 2010. That album included Brad’s best songs, recorded in the studio: Mud On The Tires, Whiskey Lullaby and many others. It is worth mentioning that the compositions that had been recorded during his concerts also were not left behind. Thus, Hits Alive will please both the connoisseurs of the studio sound and the lovers of live performances’ atmosphere.
