Paisley announces new album, single, label
Thursday, February 23, 2023
– Brad Paisley said on Thursday that his new album will be called "Sons of the Mountains." He also will release a new song from the disc, "Same Here," on Friday.
Paisley announced earlier this week that he was joining Universal Music after spending his entire career on Arista. There was no word on when the album would be out. His most recent album was "Love and War" from 2017.
"I have a new record label," said Paisley in a video posted on Instagram Thursday night. "I've been kind of working quietly on a new album for the last year."
"It's the perspective from a kid from West Virgina looking at the world today..There's a lot of big themes on this record, a lot of big surprises yet to come."
Paisley said that he was "thrilled to be with @umgnashville and back with (label head) Cindy Mabe. Cindy and I graduated the same day from Belmont where she was an honor student, and I got a "D" in guitar."
"Now for the last year or so I've been pouring my heart and soul into a new project with this team, and I cannot wait for the world to hear it."
"Also Cindy says my guitar playing is at least a B now. So there's that," Paisley joked.

Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. ...
