One, Er, Two Of My
ACM Moments

They're both Brad Paisley-related. First, as they read nominees for Top Male Vocalist, I leaned over to Wade Jessen and said, "Brad Paisley wins this ... it's his time." And so it was.

Second, I was seated behind Butch Waugh, and I was trying to tell him how much I enjoyed listening to an advance copy of Brad's upcoming "5th Gear" CD. That became a challenge, since Butch kept standing up to applaud all the Sony BMG acts winning ACMs during the evening, including Brad! We did find time to agree the song "Letter to Me" is amazing. There's another song that will no doubt be a smash, which is called "It Did."

Typical of all Brad's albums, "5th Gear" has some tracks that display his great sense of humor, namely "Online"; "I'm Still a Guy"; and a fun song called "Bigger Fish to Fry," featuring an ensemble called The Kung Pao Buckaroos, which consists of Little Jimmy Dickens, Whisperin' Bill Anderson, Vince Gill and Dolly Parton.

OK, now it's your turn. What have you heard that knocks your socks off?
