The first Number 1 country song of 2015 belongs to Brad Paisley with his current single “Perfect Storm” (off his Moonshine in the Trunk album). It is high time that Paisley’s current single blows past the competition with this surging release that serves as a sequel to songs like “She’s Everything.” With descriptive lyrics such as “sunshine mixed with a little hurricane,” the song is a lyrical, emotional, and vocal powerhouse for Paisley, marking his twenty-third chart topper of his decorated career.
Bookending with Tim McGraw’s “Shotgun Rider,” which was the final Number 1 song of 2014, “Perfect Storm” edged McGraw out on Billboard’s Country Singles chart, while McGraw clung on to the Mediabase/Country Aircheck top spot.
Congratulations to Paisley on a surging start to the new year, and to McGraw for closing out his 2014 chapter with a bang from the ole shotgun!
