His success story spans ten years by now. After publishing his first album in 1999, Brad Paisley presents his number eight with American Saturday Night. And - as all others before - also this CD ejected him to the top of the charts. Then became his fourteenth number-1-hit. Countless awards and honors confirm the success of this sympathic singer/songwriter from West Virginia. Just in 2009 alone he is nominated for nine CMA Awards. On top of that, he's one of the best guitarists in the current music scene and a very pleasant and humorous human being.

Again, Paisley co-penned all of the songs on this album and the result can make him proud. Uptempo songs, instrumental parts or slowdance tracks, there's something for every fan. It's hard to give recommendations as the entire album is worth listening to. As personal favorites, beside the several radio- and chart-hits, I could spot Everybody's Here, Water or No.

The fact that Paisley's label, Arista, decided to burn fourteen tracks on this CD makes the buying decision even easier for all fans. So if you haven't yet, go to the CD store or download the album online. As with all Paisley products: It's money well spent.
