Brad Paisley mixed things up with his latest album, Wheelhouse, by recording the project in a newly contructed studio in a farmhouse on his Williamson County, Tennessee property. As a perfectionist, Brad tells us that having the studio set apart from his family home was his saving grace.
["I always said I was never gonna have a home studio because it would be too much temptation to never quit. You know, I'm one of those kids that if you stick Legos in my bedroom, I won't sleep. I'll just build the Legos all night, and you'll come in in the morning (laughs), and there's a big building or somethin', and I'm passed out on the floor. But the difference is that I don't live here, so we were able to do this. I still have to come to this house to do it, which is a good thing. It's not in my basement or somethin'. I think people with studios have a tendency to put their kids to bed and go back to work in a much easier way than it was for me. Like, comin' back down here was a commitment to, like, 'Okay, I'll see ya later. I'm goin' down to the studio.' Which is a good thing."] SOUNDCUE (:42 OC: . . . a good thing.)
Brad continues heading up the charts with "Beat This Summer," the second single from Wheelhouse.
Brad's Beat This Summer tour, featuring special guests Chris Young, Lee Brice, and The Henningsens, rolls on to Virginia Beach on Friday (June 28th).
