14 years ago today Brad Paisley topped the charts for the very first time. He has done it at least 16 times since but it was on this date in 1999 that "He Didn't Have To Be" found itself perched on top of the charts. So many people related to that song. It was a topic that had not really been addressed before and Brad has continued to break new ground musically for many years since.

"He Didn't Have To Be" is actually one of my favorite Brad tunes. I have put together my top 5 and this was brutal to narrow down. He is one of those artists that I have liked nearly everything he has ever recorded so it's hard to pick favs but here they are. Don't miss Brad in Cheyenne this summer. Details on his CFD performance below.
