Brad Paisley is celebrating his 24th No. 1 with “Today.”

Any No. 1 is nice, of course, but this one gets extra attention for being his 21st chart-topper as a songwriter.

Brad co-wrote the song with celebrated Nashville songsmith Ashley Gorley (Cole Swindell’s “You Should Be Here,” Jake Owen’s “American Country Love Song,” Luke Bryan’s “Kick the Dust Up”) and Chris DuBois (Chris Janson’s “Buy Me a Boat,” Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood’s “Remind Me,” Darius Rucker’s “It Won’t Be Like This for Long”).

“Today” appears on Brad’s 11th album Love and War, which drops next month.

Check out the emotional video for the song that has so far garnered more than 25 million views and half a million Facebook shares below. Just be sure to grab a tissue!
