Weird Reasons I Love “Southern Comfort Zone”
This past week I fell in love with a brand new song. Brad Paisley's Southern Comfort Zone. It got me right from the beginning.
Audio hooks from Andy Griffith, One of Dale Earnhardt's races, and the Grand Ole Opry. I love nostalgic stuff like that! Then I was wondering where Brad got the choir.
With the help of JD Collins, we found out that the choir comes from Brentwood Baptist Church in Tennessee. It's a top-notch choir. It doesn't surprise me, since Brad doesn't settle for anything less whether it's himself or others.
What really gets me in the song is the drumming. Wow! Outstanding! Rarely does a song drag me in because of what the drummer is doing, but this one does.
The song's message is about leaving your home to expand your horizons. It's a good theme, but not my chief reason for loving this song. I'm funny that way sometimes.
Oh, Dixie Land,
I hope you understand
When I miss my Tennessee Home
And I been away way too long
I can't see this world unless I go
Outside my Southern Comfort Zone.
Brad Paisley in my opinion is one of the most inspired, talented guitar players I've ever heard. His vocals carry this one, since there is not a lot of his famous guitar riffs. Brad is also generous and knows where to go when he needs someone to play on a record. This one strikes of genius. Ordinary people coming together as a choir to sound truly amazing!
