Kung Pao (Hidden Track)
Label: Arista Nashville
This is the sound of a man having fun. Often regarded as the great white hope for the New Traditional movement, Paisley still sticks close to his roots here, dabbling in Western swing, bluegrass, honky-tonk and even some folk. But songs like "Celebrity" poke fun at the hype of the hyped, while "Kung Pao" is another sidesplitter.
