Brad Paisley Bumps Up Album Release Of ‘This Is Country Music’ To May 23rd

Brad moves up the release of his 9th studio album, This Is Country Music, to May 23. This week the album’s second single, “Old Alabama” (featuring Alabama), races into the Top 10 on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck airplay charts in only 7 weeks. This Is Country Music marks Paisley’s first all-new studio album since 2009’s American Saturday Night.

A 15-track collection, with 12 co-written by Brad, This Is Country Music once again teams Brad with longtime producer and collaborator Frank Rogers. The diverse and star-studded project sports an array of special guests, including Carrie Underwood (who duets on the recapturing-love tale of “Remind Me”).  Don Henley joins Brad for “Love Her Like She’s Leavin’,” while Blake Shelton is in on the fun of “Don’t Drink the Water,” and Marty Stuart, Sheryl Crow, and Carl Jackson come together to continue a Brad tradition of including a gospel song on his albums with “Life’s Railway to Heaven.”

Brad is also ready to make our day with the spirited Western instrumental of “Eastwood,” featuring none other than Clint Eastwood.
