As you may have gathered by the title, Brad Paisley has got himself an awesome new website. I got an email saying it was all done, and I have to say I’m really impressed! The main page is kept simple (and I think sometimes the problem with celebrity websites is overloading), and has ‘BRAD PAISLEY’ in big letters, with an image underneath. The background is the sunset picture Brad has been using to promote ‘Southern Comfort Zone’ and there is a silhouette of Brad, his hat, and his guitar, falling off a cliff (willingly! No-pone pushed him! Haha). That’s a pretty effective image in itself, until you scroll down, and BRAD FALLS. HE FALLS. The guitar falls away from him and he falls away from his hat. It’s awesome. So awesome
I am kind of fascinated, as you can tell. As for the rest of the main page, there’s a changing billboard of various Brad-related stuff, then Brad’s tweets, latest news and ‘community activity’ from the forums. Everything’s laid out clearly but attractively and the rest of the pages on the site are smooth, interactive, clean and modern. We keep the nice sunset theme too!
I’m no expert on websites and you make think “why are you over-analysing this? It’s just a website”, but a website is everything these days and I’m glad Brad has a great one as I’m a big fan. Plus it’s so annoying when celebrity’s websites are difficult and ugly to use, and it’s a pain if you need to find some info from it. Plus I think it’s worth visiting purely to watch Brad slowly (or quickly) fall from a cliff. It’s just awesome.
My only gripe is that because of this the website takes a little while to load properly, and actually freezes my computer for 30 seconds or so (which is quite a long time if you think about it). I thought it might be my internet connection or computer but with certain websites this happens no matter what your computer or internet connection, as I’ve discovered to my annoyance. I don’t think it happens every time you visit though so give it a go.
Again, here’s the link, enjoy ;)
