Moby, Rob Thomas also hit the shelves
Brad Paisley, "American Saturday Night" (Arista)
Country superstar follows up the largely instrumental "Play" with this back-to-form collection of songs that he calls his most personal ever. First single, "Then," which has already topped the country charts, is a beautiful ode of love to wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, whereas "Anything like Me" is a tune about his two baby boys. But Paisley's trademark way with a clever lyric also shines on the funny "Catch All the Fish." The other constant on any Paisley album: his blazing fretwork. The guy can play.
