I've never written a review before, but I loved this book so much that I had to let everyone know! This book was well written and entertaining to read. I cried a little and laughed a whole lot. Once, I picked this book up. I just couldn't put it down. I wanted to know more and more on what made Brad the "player" he is today.
Thank you, Papaw Jarvis for that wonderful gift you gave to Brad as a child. We all appreciate it.

    You DON'T have to be a Brad Paisley fan or like Country music for that fact to read and enjoy this book.

    "This honest, funny, revealing book is one muscician's true story of what's been a very musical life with strings attatched. Diary of a Player is Brad Paisley's love letter to the guitar as an instrument that changes our lives and a loving salute to the musical heroes who taught him everything he really needed to know about growing up. These key figures in Paisley's musical life include his beloved grandfather and hid childhood teacher and bandmate Clarence Hank Goddard, as well as the more legendary Buck Owens and Chet Atkins, among many others! The impression these musical masters have had on Brad Paisley's life can be heard in every note he plays and in every song he sings. You'll also hear from some of Brad's many friends, like Vince Gill, Carrie Underwood, Keith Urban, and Sheryl Crow, and get some heartfelt guitar tips from this confessed country player."

    A guitar journey!

    The main reason I read the book was for my interest in guitars. The book talked a lot about Brad's guitar journey, so that was a plus for me. His personal stories about family & friends was an added bonus.

    Great Read

    It is entertaining. I am not a true country music fan, but Brad Paisley is one artist I do enjoy listening too. It was wonderful to read his story of growing up around the "older country music generation" & brought to mind my childhood days of being the only child sitting around with the elders and listening to the music of their days gone by and appreciating what foundation was laid for the current genres. Finished the book in a day.
