Brad Paisley @ Joe's bar

Chicago's US99 WUSN, Blue Chip casino and Coors Light brought us another one of the 8 shows at Joe's this time with none other than Brad Paisley on August 18Th. Brad is known as a guitar guy and is considered one of the best guitarists in any genre. His Telecaster style guitars are built to look like the vintage Fender telecasters from the late fifties to mid sixties by Crook Custom Guitars located in Brad's home state of West Virginia. Paisley kicked the show off with a string of hits from his past five albums (he has released seven including his latest and a Christmas album) like "The World" and "Waiting on a Woman" "I'm still a guy" and also a few from his latest release "American Saturday Night" including his new song "Welcome to the future" where he showed us he had the Pacman video game on his iphone.
Brad's show was all about the music and free of gimmicks and effects concentrating on the almost incomprehensible guitar playing that is embedded into Brads catchy upbeat and often humorous songs. Brad and his band gave the lucky fans who won tickets through Chicago's country music radio station a solid two hour show and it was "Time Well Wasted" who is next in the eight shows at Joe's series? Bucky Covington.
