Single Review: “I’m Still A Guy” by Brad Paisley

February 20, 2008

Brad has made a name for himself by making wisecrack songs and comedy diddies like this one. This song is entertaining and unique, like Brad’s other songs, but I think its giving him an image that really doesn’t belong. This song takes a comedic look at how women can try to make men more respectable, but no matter what they’re always gonna be men and do what guys do. Brad pulls it off quite nicely, being used to  songs like this.

The negative portion of this is that it makes Brad seem like he’s not serious and that songs like “Letter To Me” and “When I Get Where I’m Going” were the songs that didn’t match his personality when in reality those are when he’s at his best. Brad is the golden boy of country music radio and has not failed to grasp the top ten sense his first album and every song he’s released from “5th gear” has topped the charts. There is little evidence to suspect that this one will do any different. The only worry that this song bring to me is that new country fans will begin to see Brad as a comedic type of singer and take him less seriously. That being said this is a decent song and brad is speaking his mind and being himself, but I’m starting to fear that may rub off a little to well on him after a little while.

    What I think your missing is maybe the fact that Brad embraces the comedic type of singer. I don’t believe that he wants to be known only as a comedic type singer, but if you have ever seen him live you know that he puts great effort into making his show both fun and funny. Also, he last few albums include hilarious pieces from the Kung Pao Buckaroos with Little Jimmy Dickens, Bill Anderson, and George Jones. I truly think that he is in the mold of a Roger Miller in this light. What makes him stand out is that he can write and sing a novelty song, and then turn around and make us feel a totally different emotion with a “When I Get Where I’m Going” or “Letter to Me”. However, I do agree that I don’t like the timing of this release and would rather of seen “Some Mistakes” release at this point.
