Brad Paisley, ‘Last Time for Everything’ [Listen]

Last Time for Everything Cover Art
Arista Nashville

Few do nostalgia quite like Brad Paisley. The singer and country guitar great gets a chance to use all his tools on “Last Time for Everything,” the latest single from the upcoming Love and War album.

A syncopated guitar riff runs against the melody of Paisley’s new song in a way that emphasis harmony at the chorus. This is the song’s signature — perhaps more than the writers’ very relevant message. This time of year (graduation, wedding season, vacations) is made for reminiscing, and Paisley touches on topics everyone can relate to: bad haircuts, young love, an old family pet and the death of a hero.

There’s something special about hearing the 44-year-old mention Little Jimmy Dickens, George Strait and Glenn Frey in song — it means a little more coming from a student of music like Paisley. Observations on life and society are what he does best, and this song finds a fresh way to deliver to fans.

Did You Know?: Paisley’s new Love and War album includes collaborations with Mick Jagger, John Fogerty and more.

Brad Paisley’s “Last Time for Everything” Lyrics:

Using a fake ID at a college bar / Getting caught with a girl in the backseat of a car / Running out on the field for the senior game wearing number 17 / Well there’s a last time for everything.

Like a George Strait cassette in a Pontiac / And telling Supercuts let’s leave it long in the back / Wearing a tux in a high school gym / And she’s wearing your class ring / There’s a last time for everything.

Last call, last chance, last song, last dance / Sometimes you just don’t know when that’s gonna be / Hold me baby, give me a kiss / Like tonight is all there is / ‘Cause there’s a last time for everything.

Throwing a ball with the first dog you ever had / Spending all day on the lake with your granddad / Watching Glenn Frey sing ‘Already Gone’ at the Forum in L.A. / There’s a last time for everything.

Kissing goodbye on her porch and driving away Introducing her as your fiancé / Getting woke up at 5AM to see if Santa came / There’s a last time for everything / Biscuits and gravy at mama’s house / Spring Break on a fold-out couch / Little Jimmy on the Opry stage / Hearing Prince sing ‘Purple Rain.’
