|Brad Paisley: Moonshine In The Trunk
Brad Paisley's 'Moonshine in the Trunk' album is a particularly, purposefully inspiring album with no less than four songs meant to remind the listener that he or she can achieve anything. There's not a drop of pain or bittersweet to be found on Paisley's 10th studio release, which follows 2013′s 'Wheelhouse.'
Songs like 'High Life' and 'Gone Green' quench a thirst for Paisley's unique sense of humor. The first may be the best of the 15 tracks on 'Moonshine …' Carrie Underwood steps up to poke fun at herself and a culture of money-hungry Americans. They even take a not-so-subtle jab at the Nashville songwriter who accused them of stealing 'Remind Me.'
"I heard a song a couple months ago, was Carrie Underwood on the radio / Reminded me of a poem my brother wrote back in second grade / I know she didn't steal it but so what / We lawyered up and we sued her butt."
The meat of the album is songs like 'River Bank,' 'Limes' and '4WP' - those mid-to-uptempo tracks that steer straight down country Main St. One won't find a single offensive lyric among the 15. There are plenty of drinking songs (tequila and margaritas, por favor) and a few gentle love songs.
