Putting aside the fact that Alanis Morissette did the same thing with a lot more flair nine years ago on “Unsent”, Brad Paisley’s put out one of the better singles of his career, a welcome reprieve from his recent attempts at humor. He’s able to speak as an adult to his seventeen year-old self with wisdom and intelligence, making this an intriguing, self-probing exploration.
How appropriate that in a letter to himself at a younger age where he reveals how much greatness he has ahead of him, Paisley proves his adult self is telling the truth about all of his personal strengths.
