A bright “Paisley” future

I have to say that I LOVE the new(ish) Brad Paisley song “Welcome to the Future” from is American Saturday Night album.

Usually this type of song – the ones that look into our general, collective pasts and futures – are nostolgic and melancholy; wishing for the “good ol’ days”. As if those days will always be the most we can hope to obtain.

I don’t mind looking back with general fondness, but just because things are different doesn’t mean they are bad. And this song shows the optimism of that.


“Welcome to the Future” is awesome and actually what I’ve come to expect from Brad Paisley. I enjoy all his music – I can’t think of a single song that I dislike, unlike most artists, where I usually have a few songs that I don’t listen to…

Brad Paisley and Keith Urban, the only two mainstream artists that I have all of their music. I don’t even like U2 as much as these two.

Songs like Tim McGraw’s “Back When”, Bucky Covington’s “A Different World”, Rascal Flatts’ “Mayberry”, and even REM’s “End of the World as We Know It”, are all to dark for me to listen too. I don’t like looking back as if it was soooo much better back then.

But this song – “Welcome to the Future” –  it’s just so good! and upbeat and positive.
