Brad Paisley 

With Sara Evans and Sugarland. Saturday, December 3, at the Wolstein Center at CSU.

It doesn't happen often on Time Well Wasted, but on "Alcohol," the two Brad Paisleys -- the amazing post-James Burton guitarist and the conventional country singer -- finally get together and make one of the year's best singles. Rendered in funky triple time, it's narrated by booze itself: "Since the day I left Milwaukee, Lynchburg, and Bordeaux, France/I've been making the bars lots of big money/And helping white people dance." With effortless swing, a sing-along chorus, and of course superb guitar work, it's a reminder that sometimes modern Nashville does its best work when it gets out of its own head.
