April 27, 2009 — Brad Paisley's current hit "Then" is one that anticipates the ongoing growth of a relationship. The message is one that listeners can relate to on a personal basis, but it also has some relevance to Brad's career, since he tries to anticipate the way that his songs will translate in his relationship with his fans.
"Looking ahead at the lives of people that you touch as a singer, it's certainly always fun to think about what that does and the effect that you can have as an artist on, just, people in the world and all that," Brad says. "I do think that that's the thing that we forget sometimes as we make these records and sing is that there are people whose lives are changed by records and music and, well, I'm glad that that happens."
"Then" currently ranks at No. 10 on the Billboard Country Songs chart. Brad is the featured artist on Thursday 's edition of the national radio show GAC Nights: Live From Nashville.
