Following the release of country superstar Brad Paisley’s eleventh studio album, Love and War, the three-time Grammy winner surprised fans with the release of a country visual album, featuring videos of all 16 tracks off the record, which debuted on Apple Music over the weekend. (Paisley took to Twitter to tell fans to “Talk to me in an hour & tell me what ya think!”)
The hour-long video is the Arista Nashville artist’s way of connecting with fans on a more personal level and relaying the deeper meaning of each song on the album. The video features scenes from an aircraft carrier, in a shopping mall, at the famous Grand Ole Opry and in his hometown square, with appearances from his wife, actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley, actor & singer David Hasselhoff and the car from the 1982 television series Knight Rider.
Love and War, which featured diverse collaborations from every spectrum of music (Timbaland, Mick Jagger, John Fogerty & a poem by Johnny Cash), was released on April 21, after a number of pre-released singles (hit single “Today,” “Heaven South,” “Last Time For Everything”).
