Brad Paisley's mostly instrumental new set, which chronicles his self-described "love affair with the guitar," is both outstanding and diverse. The first single, "Start a Band," with Keith Urban is catchy but just scratches the surface of the project, which includes appearances by the late Buck Owens, B.B. King, Steve Wariner, Vince Gill and Albert Lee. While songs like "Let the Good Times Roll" (with King) and "Playing With Fire" transport listeners to a smoky bar, the nostalgic "Turf's Up" is an impressive tribute to the surf instrumentals of early rock'n'roll. "Come On In," a duet with Owens, is a pleasant find and fitting tribute. Based on a demo Owens recorded before his death, Paisley's song brings an old friend back to life with the utmost respect. —Ken Tucker
