Paisley's debut was so well received that he was invited to join the program full-time, and in the years to follow he opened for the likes of the Judds, Roy Clark, and Little Jimmy Dickens.
In the meantime, Paisley recorded a duet with Chely Wright, "Hard to Be a Husband, Hard to Be a Wife," for the Backstage at the Grand Ole Opry compilation; the two later collaborated on several songs for Wright's Never Love You Enough album.
The sequel to Paisley's debut, Part II, was released in 2001 and promptly returned him to the Top Five with "Two People Fell in Love." "I'm Gonna Miss Her (The Fishin' Song)" gave Paisley his third chart-topper, and "Wrapped Around" fell one spot short of becoming his fourth.

The Bangles were the only band to bring the Paisley name to a chart with their 1986 hit "Walk Like an Egyptian", but generally lack of industry support and, arguably, a commercial musical breakthrough ushered this era to a close by 1988.

 Paisley Underground - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Paisley Underground is a term used to describe a genre of rock music, based primarily in Los Angeles, California, which was at its most popular in the mid-1980s.
Paisley Underground bands incorporated psychedelia, rich vocal harmonies and guitar interplay in a folk rock style that owed a particular debt to The Byrds, but more generally referenced the whole range of 1960s West Coast pop and garage rock, from the Seeds to the Beach Boys.
Not to be confused with Paisley, a type of punk, but ironically upbeat, and sung with lyrics that would normally be directed at children.

 The Stypod » The Paisley Underground
“Paisley Underground” refers to a loose-knit group of bands raised on punk who for whatever reason, fell in love with (and subsequently revived) the sounds of the 60s.
The “paisley” tag brings to mind Austin Powers dancing to Strawberry Alarm Clock at the Electric Psychedelic Pussycat Swingers Club, but the sound’s actual influences range from artists as diverse as Buffalo Springfield to Gram Parsons and The Byrds to the Velvet Underground and Big Star.
Probably the least “paisley” of them all, the Long Ryders, were fronted by Sid Griffin who is better known these days for being a Gram Parsons historian, and the Flying Burrito Brothers influence shows all over the band’s work.

Paisley : An oriental (Persian) pattern motif which is shaped like a teardrop, rounded at one end with a curving point at the other - similar to half of the Yin Yang symbol, the Indian bodhi tree leaf, the mango tree, leeches or even paramecia (if viewed under a microscope).
It may not have been called Paisley Park, but it was rented by Prince for rehearsal space (and then he bought it knocked it down and built what is there now).

Paisley Underground was a short-lived movement from the west coast of the US in which country rock was mixed with psychedelia to create albums of gently soulful songs that spun off into the sunset with the sounds of the late-sixties.
So little is Paisley Underground recognised that it makes not one appearance in the press release for Marjorie Fair with only Mercury Rev and Grandaddy admitting such a fondness for it as to allow it into their sound.
One suspects, however, that if pushed, Marjorie Fair would happily admit a debt to Paisley Underground as the sound of psychedelia is deeply rooted in their sound, mixing electric guitars, sweet harmonies and experimental rock into gentle and drifting country rock.

They started out as political hardcore and moved through death rock, paisley underground psych-pop and then got a bit roots rock.
No big deal, except for this; that paisley underground record, Beneath the Shadows, is one of the best overlooked albums of the 80s, and this record has a reworked song that got cut from Shadows, and a few songs that fall in the same mode.

The phrase was coined by Michael Quercio, founder of the Salvation Army and the Three O’Clock, and it would come to be hated by the bands that it described the way that the word “grunge” would be hated by bands in Seattle a few years later.
It referred to the paisley fashions that the groups favored, but most of the California bands had some substance beneath the style, at least in the beginning.

 Metroactive Music | Chuck Prophet
As a member of the long-defunct Green on Red--the Paisley Underground band that during the '80s crafted a rustic roots-rock sound laden with punk sensibilities, and served as a precursor to the current crop of Americana artists--the San Francisco-based singer, songwriter, and guitarist often visited Memphis blues and blue-eyed Southern soul in his songs.
The band became closely identified with the then burgeoning L.A.-based Paisley Underground, a loose-knit, neopsychedelic collective that also included the Dream Syndicate, the Three O'Clock, Rain Parade, and the Bangles (before their big-hair days).
"The Paisley Underground was a reaction to that.

It was Cuercio’s affinity for the music of the 60s, as well as the brightly colored paisley clothes, that gave this scene its name.
While the name did not do the music justice, the influence of the Paisley Underground on contemporary bands like Oasis and The Secret Machines is undeniable.
He and his partner, Seth Tiven, put out their debut album, D is for Dumptruck, in 1994 and were very influenced by what Paisley Underground bands like The Dream Syndicate were doing on the west coast.

Game Theory formed on the fringe of the Paisley Underground movement of the early-'80s and though they certainly had a retro-'60 sound with psychedelic leanings, the band owed its greatest debt to the proto-power pop of Big Star.
Scott Miller's song craft, distinctive voice (self-described as a "miserable whine") and intelligent lyrics (often obscure but rarely pretentious) carved a sound that, while firmly rooted in traditional pop, was truly original and defined an era of college rock.
They began playing live in the same circles with Dream Syndicate and Thin White Rope -- rumblings of the Paisley Underground scene were just beginning.

 Rolling Stone : New Paisley Days for the Jupiter Affect
The indie release earned them a hit with the single "Jet Fighter" and a spot on IRS's roster, but what seemed like a promising start turned out to be the beginning of a slow decline as the major-label machinery attempted, usually successfully, to get Quercio to conform his music to Eighties' commercial standards.
Even a jump to Prince's Paisley Park label and a complimentary tune from his purple majesty couldn't stop the inevitable.
The album's thirteen songs narrow the gap between the paisley pop of the Three O'Clock and PGL's edgier rock and glimmer with a psychedelic sheen.

Indeed, the latest crop of albums from such baroque popsters as Jupiter Affect and the Loud Family continues the neo-psychedelic vocation of the '80s California bands dubbed the "Paisley Underground."
It was Michael Quercio who coined the term Paisley Underground, and the band he fronted for much of the '80s, the Three O'Clock, exemplified the style: swooning melodies, choirboy vocals and neoclassical filigrees atop brisk, '60s-rooted rock.
The group split in 1988, after an ill-fated alliance with Prince's Paisley Park label, and Quercio kept a low profile for a decade.

Always wary of their Paisley Underground tag, it was only Green on Red's debut EP that leaned on the psychedelic sounds of the '60s before they traded it in for a boozy, all-American sound.
Best known for the shimmering "Under the Milky Way," their lone Top 40 hit, the Australian band the Church combined the jangling guitar pop of '60s icons like the Byrds with the opaque wordplay of frontman Steve Kilbey to create a lush, melancholy brand of neo-psychedelia rich in texture and melody.
Out of the same mold as L.A.'s Paisley Underground bands, True West didn't fit because they were from Davis, CA (operating out of the nearby nexus for guitar bands, San Francisco) and a little darker and less dreamy than the others.

During the 1980s, underground bands and labels built a network of distribution and touring that was independent of the mainstream music industry.
With bands as diverse as Sonic Youth, Meat Puppets, and the Replacements, 'alternative' came to mean more about DIY ethics than any sort of strict stylistic similarities.
Ever since, 'indie rock' seems to have taken alternative's place as the underground's choice for representing DIY bands.

 Sitio oficial de Ticketmaster. Steve Wynn boletos, fechas
After graduating from the University of California in Davis and a stint with his new wave band, Suspects, Wynn took a cross-country trip in search of Alex Chilton, one of his spiritual mentors, who had been sorely missed on the music scene since his days with the seminal pop band Big Star.
When he returned to California, almost simultaneously the underground rock scene was experiencing a guitar rock revival, aided by fellow Chilton devotees R.E.M. and the Replacements.
Heralded as the leaders of the paisley underground, a neo-'60s scene out of Los Angeles that included the Bangles and the Three O'Clock, Dream Syndicate were by far the most "outside" band in the bunch, often challenging their audiences to three-hour sets built around endless jams and feedback sessions.

Of the countless bands to emerge from the New York City underground during the post-punk era, few if any were as unique and influential as the Feelies; nerdy, nervous, and noisy, even decades later their droning, skittering avant-garde pop remains a key touchstone of the American indie music scene.
Leader Scott Miller's song craft, distinctive voice (self-described as a "miserable whine") and intelligent lyrics (often obscure but rarely pretentious) carved a sound that, while firmly rooted in traditional pop, was truly original and defined an era of college rock.
Coming from the long-lamented paisley underground scene, which included such bands as the Dream Syndicate, the Bangles, and Rain Parade, the Ryders were easily the tightest, and well-deserving of their major-label deal with Island Records, following their brilliant debut for Frontier in 1984.

 The Dream Syndicate Album Reviews
Often regarded as the quintessential group of the Paisley Underground-movement, The Dream Syndicate might have been the band that had the least in common with the other units.
The name of the band came from the avant-garde outfit that John Cale played in before he was in The Velvet Underground and Wynn even takes a line from a Velvet Underground song at one point.
It's pretty obvious that he really likes The Velvet Underground a lot and that he's very influenced by him, but I'm still convinced that the Syndicate had their own thing going.
