Brad Gets Into 5th Gear
Brad Paisley releases his long-awaited new CD, 5th Gear, Tuesday, June 19.
The album features the hit single “Ticks,” which is taking over the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart this week. Brad came up with the title for the album because it marks his fifth CD release and it sums up the artistic path he’s taking. “It feels like another gear to me, in the musical scheme of things,” Brad tells Neil Haislop’s Nashville IQ. “Fifth gear is something that you only reach on a straight stretch in a certain car, you know, where you get up past 55 or 60. It felt like we were really pushing things further in every way.”
