A Man Don't Have To Die Lyrics

Well he yelled out from the back row
look here preacher man
We all know you're new here
but you need to understand
It don't really scare us
when you yell and shake your fist
You see we already know that hell existsIts six months short of thirty years
when the boss man lays you off
No thinking you no pair of shoes no shiny new gold watch
Its payments that you cant make on a house you cant sell
See a man don't have to die to go to hell
No you don't have to die to go to hellSo tell us bout them angels and how they fly around and sing
Tell us how to get there cause we all want to be
Resting in the arms of Jesus no shame or pain or tears
There's hell enough to go around down hereIts a place out by the airport
where the girls dance just for you
And all you feel is drunk and broke and lonely when their through
Its waking up with nothing but that stale tobacco smell

See a man don't have to die to go to hell
Nah you don't have to die to go to hellOoh ooh oohOoh ooh oohIts every other weekend and Wednesdays with your kid
And knowing that he'll hate you when he finds out what you did
'Cause you'd all still be together if you loved his momma well
There ain't no end to the stories we could tell
Yeah a man don't have to die to go to hell
So tell us bout them angels how they fly around and singOoh ooh oohOoh ooh ooh

Brad Paisley (born October 28, 1972) is an American country music singer and songwriter from Glen Dale, West Virginia.

Brad Paisley has stated that his love of country music stems from his maternal grandfather, who gave Paisley his first guitar at age 8 and taught him how to play. At age 12, Paisley wrote his first song, and by 13 he was the opening act for country singers.

Paisley graduated from John Marshall High School in Glen Dale and enrolled at Belmont University (from 1993 to 1995). While in college, he met Frank Rogers, a fellow student who went on to serve as his producer. Paisley also met Kelley Lovelace, who became his songwriting partner.

After graduating from Belmont, Paisley signed a songwriting contract with EMI Music Publishing. His debut as a singer was with the label Arista Nashville, with the song, "Who Needs Pictures" (released February 22, 1999). In May of that same year, he made his first appearance on the Grand Ole Opry. Seven months later he had his first #1 hit with, ""He Didn't Have To Be."

In 2000, Paisley made an appearance on the nationally televised special, "Route 66: Main Street America" featured on TLC (TV channel) and later that same year he won the Country Music Association's (CMA) Horizon Award and the Academy of Country Music's best new male vocalist trophy. He received his first Grammy Award nomination a year later. On February 17, 2001, after forty appearances on the show, he was inducted into the Opry Hall of Fame.

In 2002, he won the CMA Music Video of the Year for ""I'm Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin' Song)." Several celebrities made notable guest appearances in the video, inluding Little Jimmy Dickens, Kimberly Williams (Paisley), Dan Patrick, and Jerry Springer.

Paisley released his third album, Mud on the Tires (2003), following Who Needs Pictures and Part II. The album features the hit song "Celebrity," the video of which parodies reality shows such as Fear Factor and American Idol and included such celebrities as Jason Alexander, Little Jimmy Dickens, Trista Rehn, and William Shatner. The album's title track, "Mud on the Tires," reached Billboard #1 in 2004.

In 2005, after touring with Reba McEntire and Terri Clark on the critically acclaimed "Two Hats and a Redhead Tour," he released Time Well Wasted, containing 15 tracks, including "Alcohol", a duet ("When I Get Where I'm Going") with Dolly Parton, another ("Out In The Parking Lot") with Alan Jackson, and a bonus track, "Cornography".

Brad Paisley was the 2008 CMA and ACM Male Vocalist of the Year winner.

In addition, he has charted 25 singles on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, 15 of which have reached #1 with a record 10 consecutive singles reaching the top spot on the charts.
