Time Well Wasted by Brad Paisley
From an Amazon Top Reviewer:
aisley has been turning out solid country tunes for albums now but he seems to have fleeting moments on radio sometimes. On this album, Paisley seems to be at his sharpest. He takes on fast tracks “Alcohol” & “You Need a Man Around Here” and lays on the humor and great song writing without killing traditonal country roots — take a note Keith Urban.
There are the romance ballads such as “The World” & “Flowers” that I hope are hits on Radio and video format as well.
But there is a single song on here that is worth the purhcase alone. The heartbreaking ballad, “When I Get Where I’m Going” has to be one of the most beautiful songs of the last 20 years. If this song doesn’t warm you up then there is no hope. It guests, Dolly Parton — who has been turning out pure Bluegrass heaven on her last three discs. Their vocal harmonies and soaring melodies is a amazing. I can’t recommend the disc enough.
