Brad Paisley Among Guests On His Own Album
Aug. 13, 2014
(Undated) -- Brad Paisley has a few guests on his upcoming album, including Carrie Underwood, the late President John F. Kennedy, and himself. The song "4WP" is listed as "featuring Brad Paisley," which the country star says "might be a first." He tells Billboard.com he gave himself the "featuring" credit because the track includes a sample of his 2004 single, "Mud on the Tires." He says even though it's his own song he "still had to get clearance" which "took a few weeks," and was tougher than getting a legal recording of a Kennedy speech. Brad admits he was surprised at how easy it was to obtain the Kennedy material, especially since he thought that "wasn't possible to get." The singer includes the president's words before the song "American Flag on the Moon."
And Brad says it "was fun" to include Carrie on the song "High Life," which is posted on YouTube. He adds that she was "a good sport" -- especially since they're "singing about her in the last verse." Paisley explains that the song tells a "wacky, crazy" story about these "litigious" people who "see opportunity everywhere," and Carrie is the target of one of their lawsuits. "Moonshine in the Trunk," which also includes Brad's current single "River Bank," will be available August 25th.
