Why we need drinking songs
In a related note, CMT News reports on Brad Paisley’s thoughts on why we need drinking songs during the coronavirus pandemic. There’s a lot of irony in the fact that much of Paisley’s career success hinges on drinking songs. Of significance is the fact that Paisley doesn’t drink. “Alcohol,” “Catch All the Fish,” “Better Than This,” “One Beer Can,” and “Limes,” just to name a few.
Keeping true to the different times we’re all in right now, Paisley rewrote the song. Originally, the song, co-written with Kelley Lovelace had a different beginning. “When we first wrote this song, the first line was about there’s a bunch of people coming over.” Being situationally aware, the lyrics changed to, “wherever you are tonight, whatever you’re going through.”
What else has Paisley been up to?
Much like Garth Brooks and Blake Shelton, Brad Paisley headlined what he describes as a “three-city world tour.” The three-night drive-in concert experience was in Maryland Heights, Missouri; Nashville, Tennessee; and Noblesville, Indiana earlier in July. Taking into account the uniqueness of the experience, Paisley describes the drive-in concert experience. “People have their own little area next to each car, they’re all spread out in such a way that you can tailgate.” Ultimately, this allowed people to tailgate with the people they came with and not have to interact with other people.
