Fans who saw Brad Paisley on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" saw Brad perform his latest single, "Southern Comfort Zone."
Brad announced the title to the upcoming CD is Wheelhouse. His ninth studio album, which will be released on April 9. Brad explained why he settled on Wheelhouse for his. "It's all about leaving your comfort zone, this album," he explained. "It's like, what is my wheelhouse? The baseball expression, what's in your strike zone, where are you comfortable? We really have tried to go out on a limb with this record and see how far we can stretch through things."
Brad told Kimmel. "This is the first time I've sole produced it. It's the first time I've done a record with no one there who knows how to do one. I really wanted it to be -- I don't know -- special or something.
"It's a bit like you party, because you're so late," he admitted. "It's in another house on our farm, and I'm, three in the morning, walking back home. Sort of the walk of shame, only you've been actually working. I'm just walking past these horses which are in our field and it sort of feels wrong. Maybe it's because my family's up at the house, and I'm done working, with these late hours."
