Background

The song was inspired when Paisley had the chance to see the masterpiece and he says that one exciting element of the song came courtesy of his fans. Paisley recalls "in the big refrain to 'The Mona Lisa', there are actually 10,000 people recorded live in Saratoga Springs, New York. In concert, I said, 'who wants to be on the new album?' and what you hear at the end of the song is the audience singing the whoas".[2]

Critical reception

Alanna Conaway of Country Weekly gave the song an A-, writing that "between the well-crafted lyric, infectious melody and signature guitar riffs, 'The Mona Lisa' has full potential to be yet another chart-topping release for Brad."[3] The song received a favorable review from Taste of Country, which said that "the singer again shows that his songwriting skills are only bested by his guitar playing."[4]

Chart performance

"The Mona Lisa" debuted at number 59 on the U.S. Billboard Country Airplay chart for the week of December 7, 2013. It also debuted at number 47 on the U.S. Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for the week of January 4, 2014. It also debuted at number 19 on the U.S. Billboard Bubbling Under Hot 100 Singles chart for the week of February 15, 2014. While in the U.S. 'The Mona Lisa' was one of the less successful of Paisley's singles, it entered the UK Singles Chart at #100 on week ending March 22, 2014, becoming Paisley's first UK top 100 single.
