2. I'm Gonna Miss Her

Brad Paisley co-wrote this song with Frank Rogers and it became his 3rd #1 hit way back in 2002 from his "Part II" album. Rogers and Paisley had written the song while both were students attending Belmont University in Nashville, well before Brad became a country star. The song made the students laugh and as we know, later a hit song. 

Garth Brooks, Alan Jackson and George Strait had all shown some interest in recording the song but Paisley decided to keep if for his second album. Good choice Brad.
