bp1 Brad Paisley Looks Back

[lastfm link_type=””]Brad Paisley[/lastfm] has always been one of my favorites, not only for his lightning speed on a guitar, but also for his perspective on life.  His say what you mean and mean what you say style is what makes him what he is today.  So I wanted to know what song had the biggest effect on his life.

“There are certainly those that were life-changing, more than others. ‘He Didn’t Have to Be’ is still probably the most life-changing three minutes that I’ve ever written, because we wouldn’t…I really believe we wouldn’t be sitting here anymore. Maybe we’d be sitting here with me having written a number-one hit for someone else, but I don’t think I’d still have a record deal without that song. I think it was like you could see potential in it, and that’s an important thing. That would be my advice to any new artist is to find a song early on that shows your potential. It doesn’t have to show everything you’re capable of, but it needs to show that, and that did.”
