Riff: Brad Paisley – “Tin Can on a String”

Apr 8, 2013

She’s driving away/And everybody cheerin’ them on as the taillights fade

from Tin Can on a String lyrics by Brad Paisley

Wisely ditching attempts at humour, this Eagles-esque ballad instead aims for heartfelt emotion as Paisley tries to get to grips with the fact that the one he always envisioned settling down with is now riding off into the sunset with someone perhaps less fond of lame skits; [LISTEN].
