Songfacts®:

  • Brad Paisley penned "Nobody's Fool" for the 2011 computer animated movie, Cars 2. The movie's storyline has race car Lightning McQueen and tow truck Mater competing overseas in the first World Grand Prix and this song represented a change for the Country singer-songwriter. "It's me doing more of an Eric Clapton-type blues ballad about the saddest part in the film, when Mater realizes that since people think he's playing the part of a fool, he is a fool," Paisley told Reuters. "But Mater also realizes that's just who he is, and that was inspiring to me."
