Brad Paisley Unveils ‘Moonshine in the Trunk’ Album Cover
Brad Paisley unveiled the cover for his upcoming album, ‘Moonshine in the Trunk,’ while on the set of ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ on Tuesday night (June 17).
The singer used a video clip with Kimmel to share the cover, with the TV host taking a sip of moonshine and then joking, “I hope the album’s better than the moonshine.”
Paisley admits that he had inspiration for his new set of tunes — a brand-new bar he installed in his studio.
“I was thinking, ‘This is probably a mistake,’” he recalls. “And, it ended up being fantastic. We have just camped out and cut music, and it’s really fun. It’s all sort of been in the name of what I was writing and to capture the vibe of this perspective of mine. The first single is a little taste, but there’s a lot of other stuff.”
The 41 year old also joined his castmates Josh Groban, Kesha and Ludacris on the ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live!’ set to discuss their roles as judges on the new TV show, ‘Rising Star,’ which debuts on ABC this Sunday (June 22) at 9 PM ET on ABC. Contestants will have to earn a certain number of votes while performing before they can see both the live studio audience and the judges.
“I think being honest is a key thing, but finding a funny way to say things would be good,” he says of his new gig. “Humor fixes anything. I like to laugh at anything that’s going on, so I’ll probably be doing that to my own fault. I’ll probably be sticking my foot in my mouth here and there.”
‘Moonshine in the Trunk’ will be available on August 26. The West Virginia native is spending his summer on the road on his Country Nation World Tour, in support of the upcoming album. See a list of all of his upcoming shows here.
