Brad Paisley is sitting on top of the world these days. He recently scored his eighth consecutive No. 1 single with 'Waitin' on a Woman,' and the reigning CMA and ACM Male Vocalist of the Year has four CMA nominations this year. His new album, 'Play,' an instrumental effort that also features vocal duets with Steve Wariner, Buck Owens, B.B. King and Keith Urban, hits the streets November 4. During a recent afternoon off, Brad kicked back at his Tennessee home and answered a few questions for The Boot.

What's your favorite memory from childhood?

Time I spent with my grandpa and my dad fishing in a boat on the Ohio River. I loved those mornings when we'd get up really early in the morning and go out when there was still fog on the river. We'd go out on some tributary. There's nothing like it.
