Brad Paisley’s New Song, “Off Road” Offers Female Empowerment
Brad Paisley’s new song, “Off Road” is available now, February 10th, on all streaming platforms. Written by Paisley with Lee Thomas Miller, and Ross Copperman, take a look below as we dig a little deeper into the track.
With the release of “Off Road”, a beautiful and simple song that admires and celebrates a strong, independent, and trailblazing woman, Paisley works to connect with fans as he continuously releases new music throughout the last year. “Off Road” follows Paisley’s most recent single “No I in Beer”, a song about the unity of the nation at the beginning of the pandemic that also honors those who continue to sacrifice in order to get us through it. Additionally, Paisley also collaborated with Jimmie Allen for their song “Freedom Was A Highway”, which hit Country Radio just last week and is part of Allen’s collaboration project: Bettie James, released back in July.
“Off Road” is a song where the man stands beside the woman and witnesses and admires the confidence, strength, and success that she exudes all on her own. She is highlighted from the very start of the song as Paisley sings “Well here she is, meet the star of this song…”.
The song paints a picture of the two both physically leaving their past in Tennessee and headed for a future in California, but also metaphorically headed for bigger and better things. There’s no mountain she can’t climb; anything she desires is within her reach. There is just no telling what she can accomplish. She is in control in the driver’s seat and he is just along for the ride.
“She didn’t move out here to fail / She’s gonna blaze a brand new trail / Where anybody else might stop, when they run out of blacktop ”
It is clear that she is not one to follow the status quo or “stay in her lane” and she’s not going to make any choices or decisions based on the notion that someone or society says she should.
“she’s a little off road, gravel dust on her halo / I think you oughta know, if you wanna ride along (you better hang on) / Where she’s going ain’t paved / No her way ain’t the highway / And she ain’t gonna stay in her lane, cause she’s a little off road ”
