Posted in News on November 17, 2008

BMI welcomed members of Music Row’s community to the Musicians Hall of Fame Monday, October 20 for a two-pronged celebration of Brad Paisley’s latest Frank Rogers-produced chart-toppers: “I’m Still a Guy,” co-written by BMI songwriter Lee Thomas Miller, Kelley Lovelace, and Paisley and published by Didn’t Have to Be Music, EMI Music Publishing, Noah’s Little Boat Music and Sea Gayle Music and “Waitin’ on a Woman,” co-penned by BMI songwriter Varble and Don Sampson and also published by EMI Music Publishing and Sea Gayle Music, along with Warner-Tamerlane Publishing Company.

“Waitin’ on a Woman” became Paisley’s eighth consecutive no. 1 single, officially making the reigning CMA Male Vocalist of the Year the purveyor of more consecutive top singles than any other country artist in the 18-year history of Nielsen BDS-monitored airplay. As consistent as he is potent, Paisley has earned a total of 12 chart-topping songs throughout his career.
