Brad Paisley, Carrie Underwood and Alabama had another first at the Grand Ole Opry yesterday before their performance at the historic venue. For the first-time ever, the Grand Ole Opry was the host for a number one party for both of Brad’s duets “Remind Me” and “Old Alabama.” Both his singles from “This Is Country Music” had gone number one.

Brad’s next single from “This Is Country Music” is the comedic “Camouflage.” I can’t wait for the music video for that one from the country music jokester.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are once again co-hosting the Country Music Association (CMA) awards November 9th on ABC. Brad is currently trying to come up with a non-water themed name tour for his world tour next year, and Carrie is finishing up her new album rumored to be out sometime in 2012.

Brad Paisley to Release His “Country Music” Early

Fans have one less day to wait for some great ‘Country Music’ from Brad Paisley. According to AOL’s The Boot, he has pushed the release date of his ninth studio album, This Is Country Music, to May 23 — one day before its previously scheduled in-store date.

That’s likely due to the runaway success of the project’s second single, ‘Old Alabama,’ featuring the legendary group, Alabama, who reunited for the song. The song is already in the Top 10 on both the Billboard and Country Aircheck charts after just seven weeks, and follows the similarly successful title track, which peaked at No. 2.
