If Brad Paisley did not exist it would be necessary to invent him. He stands at the crossroads between the hipster realms of alt-country and the proletarian climes of mainstream Nashville. He's too close to the middle of the road to ever be drawn to the No Depression crowd's collective bosom, but he's miles ahead of the country assembly line.
On his third album Mud On The Tires he continues to do things nobody else in the Nashville hierarchy does; play a number of his own instruments, write almost all his own songs and use his own band instead of the same studio vets that occupy the credits of seemingly every other contemporary country record.
Most importantly, his songs are full of humour that doesn't descend into hee-haw jokiness. He uses a gently mocking touch to highlight the simple truths about life and love, gaining a fresh, distinctive perspective in the process.
Recorded at The Castle, Franklin, Tennessee, Spaghetti Western Swing was nominated for the 2004 Grammy Award for Best Country Instrumental Performance, while Celebrity was nominated for Best Country Song.
