"Mud on the Tires" is a song co-written and recorded by American country music singer Brad Paisley. It was released in September 2004 as the fourth and final single and title track off Paisley's album Mud on the Tires. The song reached number-one on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart and peaked at number 30 on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart. It was written by Paisley and Chris DuBois.


In the song, the narrator sings about finally getting a loan and buying a new Chevrolet pickup truck. He suggests to his significant other that they go out into the woods and hang out, breaking the truck in and getting some "mud on the tires." Chevrolet sponsored the product placement in the song.

Music video[edit]

The music video features Brad performing the song live at an event called Mudstock[1] while people party and watch from a very muddy terrain. Also during the video, two women argue about whether Brad “plays great” or “looks better” and end up fighting in the mud parodying a Miller Lite commercial as Brad and the late Little Jimmy Dickens watch the commercial and admit they will buy whatever the commercial is selling.

Chart performance[edit]

The song debuted at number 54 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Singles & Tracks for the week ending September 11, 2004.
