Brad Paisley just might “Beat This Summer” after all. His previous album Wheelhouse is barely a year old, but today, the veteran country artist announced that he’ll have a brand-new album ready for release while the weather’s still warm. The as-yet-untitled project will hit stores on August 26.
Thanks to support from his gym teacher and high-school classmates, Arizona special needs student Bailey will meet his musical hero, Brad Paisley, this summer and sing for him in person.
“So many young girls want to be just like her. In that sense, I see hope for the world. If I had a daughter, nothing would make me happier than to hear her say she wanted to grow up to be like Carrie Underwood,” Brad Paisley writes.
