Doug Paisley is the kind of guy you just want to root for and enjoy his great music. I tend to think his music is great in the first place, so thinking that I should *feel like* I should like him only works even more for me. I don’t know why I think this, but maybe being Canadian, I feel that both me and Doug are already behind the 8-ball. Regardless of feeling sorry for myself (and non ceremoniously for Paisley), I feel like Doug provides some excellent music that leap-frogs any scenario of Canadian-ness and lands in a “just plain good music” territory. He has a new EP coming out in a matter of minutes (April 17th on No Quarter) and a new album coming out later this year I believe. You should be anticipating both. I just felt I should post after seeing the fantastic video from Southern Souls (below) and thinking that I should be pushing this son-of-a-bitch on all of you.
