The title track is worth the price of the CD alone, but there are many other good songs here. "This is Country Music" explores the themes of country music of love and loss. Brad also pays tribute singing titles of country music classics on this song. I love the spirit of this song. This tune alone makes me a bigger fan of country music. "Working On A Tan" is an up tempo song that celebrates the beauty of a beautiful woman. "Be The Lake" is another fast paced song about a pretty woman. My other favorite track is "Old Alabama". This song is about the kind of woman I would like to meet. She is a woman who enjoys the simple things in life. The guys from the band Alabama provide excellent supporting vocals. The best love song on this album is the duet with Carrie Underwood. Remind Me is a very pretty song. Their voices sound good together. It is not a slow song, but I still love it. "A Man Don't Have To Die" is about a person going through hard times in life. The honesty in the lyrics of this song show that Brad is maturing as a song writer. I like this song very much. A good album often has an instrumental included. "Eastwood" is that instrumental. It features Clint Eastwood whistling and the best guitar playing I have heard on an instrumental in a long time. Brad shows his tender side with the song "My Favorite Memory". This song is about those moments that make a woman special. This song is very touching. "Life's Like A Railway" has a religious theme. I love the banjo and fiddle playing on this track a lot. "I Do Now" is a song about learning from personal mistakes. Brad shows his tender side on this song. Brad proves that the best songs are about the simplest things. "Toothbrush" is a funny song. I never thought that love could start with a toothbrush. "This is Country Music" is a very entertaining album.
