Brad Paisley’s first album, “Who Needs Pictures,” came out in 1999. An awful lot of country singers have started, hit it big and then vanished into obscurity since then. Not Paisley. He’s bigger than ever. His latest album, “Love and War,” came out five months ago and debuted at No. 1 on the country music chart.

Lindsay Eli is an exciting relative newcomer from Calgary. She plays country music but infuses it with rock and blues. Her album, “The Project,” came out a month ago and it’s already a huge country and indie hit. She started as a protegee of Randy Bachman, of the Guess Who and Bachman-Turner Overdrive, who co-wrote and produced her first album when she was only 19 years old.
