Brad Paisley receives more good news - the guy is number one
Tuesday, May 20, 2008 – Brad Paisley is having a really good week. He received the ACM Top Male Vocalist award for the second consecutive year on Sunday and then learned Monday that his current single, "I'm Still A Guy" became his 11th number 1 hit, making it the fourth number 1 from "5th Gear." According to R&R, Paisley and Rodney Atkins (who opened for Paisley earlier this year) are the only country artists since 2002 to achieve four number 1's from a single album. As Paisley's seventh consecutive, non-seasonal single to top the charts, "I'm Still A Guy" continues a streak unmatched by any country artist in more than five years. Paisley wrote "I'm Still A Guy" with friends Kelley Lovelace and Lee Thomas Miller.

Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. »»»
