Brad Paisley

It's perhaps ironic that Brad Paisley titled his last album "Time Well Wasted," because it appears he's learned not to waste time - at least not when it comes to songwriting. He has, he says, become extremely efficient when it comes to words and music.

"For the last few albums like this — the 5th Gear album and Time Well Wasted and Mud On The Tires — I pretty much wrote what you heard for the albums," he explains. "I'll bet I didn't write five more songs than made the record. I've just gotten better at knowing, 'That's really stupid. I need to stop and tear that up.'"

Brad's not patting himself on the back as much as he's simply acknowledging his experience. He's now been signed to a recording contract for 10 years, and with that much time in the field, he's naturally gotten good at his job.

"It's like anything," he says, comparing his evolution to the growth a journalist might experience. "Your first few interviews, you probably asked a bunch of dumb questions. Like my first few songs, I said a bunch of stupid things. Now I still say stupid things, it's just that I mean to."
