It didn't take long for Brad Paisley to begin picking up major awards at country music ceremonies. Musically, you can still hear the man he was in the late '90s or 2000 (when this "Then" picture was taken) in his songs today, but he's come a long way in the style department. His look today is a little less... traditional.

It's possible that Paisley's Hollywood actress wife Kimberly Williams has helped him with his fashion sense, or maybe that he has just aged like fine wine. It's also possible that indigo and silver jackets were what all the cool kids were wearing 12 years ago, and we've just forgotten. Paisley has become a country music superstar of today, regularly winning Male Vocalist of the Year awards, Grammys and accolades for his songwriting and recording. In 2010, he earned his first Entertainer of the Year award at the CMA Awards. Whatever he's doing "Now," it's certainly working.
