We are exactly one week away from the release of Brad Paisley's new album, This Is Country Music, on May 23rd. The album features a whole slew of duets with the likes of Carrie Underwood, Don Henley and of course, Alabama. Brad says singing with Alabama on the smash, “Old Alabama” is definitely a high light on the album, "“It’s really an amazing experience to see them back together singin’ like they are and that sound that the three of their voices have. They’re just responsible for so many of us in music now, you know, that were influenced by them. And getting to hear them on the radio right next to me is the thrill of a lifetime.”
