Brad Paisley is at ‘Play’ With New Album

You won’t hear a lot of Brad Paisley‘s voice on his next project, just his pickin’. The reigning CMA Male Vocalist has recorded an instrumental album, simply titled ‘Play.’

“It will surprise people,” Paisley tells the Charlotte Observer of the upcoming CD. “It’s not all country. We do everything from jazz guitar to one that’s very heavy metal.”

Guests musicians on Paisley’s ‘Play’ include Vince Gill, Steve Wariner, B.B. King and the late Buck Owens — all personal heroes, all known for their impressive guitar playing. That’s a virtue Paisley says is lacking in today’s music world.

“There was a time when every band had a great player,” he said. “I was watching VH1’s ‘I Love The ’80s.’ They’ve got the hair bands on there . . . There was so much guitar. These days, it’s different. There’s a lack. I’m doing my part, trying to play as many solos as possible.”

‘Play’ is expected to be released in the fall. Though pegged an instrumental album, Paisley does report that he sings on a few songs.
