Brad Paisley’s New Single, “The Mona Lisa,” to Impact Country Radio on December 9
Superstar Brad Paisley hopes that fans will be all smiles with news that the fourth single from his acclaimed Wheelhouse album will be the song that he recently performed on The 47th Annual CMA Awards: “The Mona Lisa.” (pictured) Penned by Paisley and frequent collaborator Chris DuBois, the driving, feel-good love song was inspired when Paisley had the chance to see the masterpiece several years ago, and he says that one exciting element of the song came courtesy of his fans. Paisley shares, “In the big refrain to ‘The Mona Lisa,’ there are actually 10,000 people recorded live in Saratoga Springs, New York. In concert, I said, ‘Who wants to be on the new album,’ and what you hear at the end of the song is the audience singing the ‘whoas.’ So if you live in Saratoga Springs, and you were at our concert last time, you made the album!” The song will ship to country radio later this month, with an official airplay impact date of December 9, and Paisley will also perform “The Mona Lisa” when he appears on the fourth annual American Country Awards, airing live on Tuesday, December 10, at 8 PM ET (tape-delayed PT), on FOX. Paisley is currently preparing to play the final dates of his Beat This Summer Tour presented by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store®, with shows this Thursday and Saturday, November 21 in Springfield, IL, and November 23 in Detroit, MI. Paisley will be back on the road when his re-branded Beat This Winter Tour presented by Cracker Barrel Old Country Store® launches on January 9.
