Riff: Brad Paisley – “Southern Comfort Zone”

Jan 3, 2013

I miss your biscuits and your gravy/Fireflies dancing in the night

from Southern Comfort Zone lyrics by Brad Paisley

Paisley moves this homesick screed out of his “comfort zone,” turning it into an uptempo, four-on-the-floor burner. Still, every image is predictable, as are the shmaltzy samples. Worst of all is the Billy Graham nod; you’d think the past dating of a gay singer would quell the country-fried bigotry.
