Happy Tearjerker Of The Year – Brad Paisley “Today”

bradpaisley-today-daugherIt’s the holiday season and you know they’ll be doing everything possible to pull our heartstrings on TV. Sentimental movies like “It’s A Wonderful Light”, commercials featuring cute puppies and families reconnecting over dinner with our favorite traditional Christmas songs playing in the background get us teary eyed every year. But likely none of them will pack as much emotional impact into three minutes as Brad Paisley and his new video for “Today”. Soldiers returning to their families, a baby’s gender reveal, high school graduation, and wedding proposals drive the music video. The highlight is a throwback clip of Brad running offstage at the CMA’s to kiss his wife, Kimberly Williams’ pregnant belly right after winning a big award. It’s such an incredible song with another vintage Brad Paisley guitar solo buoyed by a well-produced video that simply pushes it over the top. It’s the lead single to Brad’s upcoming (and as of now, untitled) album that is rumored to feature a duet with Mick Jagger. Get ready, “Elf” and “Frosty The Snowman” are coming soon!
