23. I know what you are thinking, but this is not an article about the number of flavors in Dr. Pepper. 23 happens to be the number of #1 songs Brad Paisley has after his latest single “Perfect Storm” captured the spot for a second week in a row.
The song, co-written by Brad and Lee Thomas Miller, is the second single from 2014’s Moonshine In The Trunk album. I did not make a most underrated list for last year, but if I did, that record would have definitely been pretty damn close to the top. After taking a brilliant stab in the dark with the creatively crafted Wheelhouse release of 2013 Moonshine sees a bit of a return to what Brad Paisley has proved works over and over: Great storytelling and mind blowing guitar. Both of which are exemplified in “Perfect Storm”.
Brad grabs this #1 just in time to kick off his Country Nation World Tour presented by Kraft Cheese this past weekend. The tour began with two shows in Morgantown, WV just a few miles from Glen Dale, where Paisley grew up. Parmelee and the Swon Brothers will appear as special guests on the tour. Some upcoming dates include Southaven, Pensacola, Green Bay and Cedar Rapids. Check out BradPaisley.com for a full list.
With all of the biggest acts embarking on their winter tours I highly recommend adding Brad’s show to your must see list. There ain’t no junk in his trunk, only moonshine.
