Mud on the Tires is the third studio album by American country music artist Brad Paisley. Released in 2003 on Arista Nashville, it produced four hit singles on the Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks (now Hot Country Songs) charts: the Top Five hits "Celebrity", "Little Moments" and "Whiskey Lullaby", as well as the Number One title track. The album itself has been certified 2× Platinum, while "Whiskey Lullaby" and the title-track have been certified as gold singles.
If Brad Paisley signaled a tentative stylistic retreat via the title of 2011's This Is Country Music, the name of its 2013 sequel, Wheelhouse, is a fake-out. By no means is he returning to familiar territory here; he's stepping far outside his "Southern Comfort Zone," as Paisley puts it on the record's first single. There, he admits how he misses his Tennessee home but he's seen the ways he's grown and never would have seen the world without leaving what he already knew, a kind of self-evident truth that passes for a major revelation in the polarized world of 2013, where residents of both red and blue states are very happy within the confines of their county…
Christmas arrives early with Brad Paisley (A Brad Paisley Christmas). He tells CMT Radio that the process of making the project ''isn't stressful and doesn't have the usual pressures of making a studio album, I didn't feel any of that with a Christmas album because nothing is going to chart, you just make something artistic.'' Paisley wrote three songs on the album, which includes "Jingle Bells" and Buck Owens' "Santa Looked a Lot Like Daddy."
With the promise of more than a dozen live performances – and more than a few surprises – it sounds like Country Music’s Biggest Night will be living up to its name this year. The 49th Annual CMA Awards will take place Wednesday, November 4, live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, TN. The show will be broadcast live on the ABC Television Network. Returning as co-hosts for the eighth year in a row are country superstars Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley. (The latter ranked #13 on Forbes’ 2015 Country Cash Kings list; Underwood, who took several months off this year to be with her 8-month-old son, finished just below the list’s cutoff.) The hosts have garnered rave reviews from critics and fans alike in past years with their memorable monologues and original songs. In addition to the banter from Underwood and Paisley, fans can look forward to performances from country’s top stars and rising talents. Scheduled performers include Jason Aldean, Kelsea Ballerini, Dierks Bentley with Lindsey Stirling, Luke Bryan, Eric Church, Florida Georgia Line, Sam Hunt, Miranda Lambert, Little Big Town, Maddie & Tae, Kacey Musgraves, Paisley, Chris Stapleton, Blake Shelton, Underwood, and Zac Brown Band.
