Brad Paisley is giving fans his new music a day earlier than originally planned. He has decided to move the release date of his latest studio album, This is Country Music, from May 24 to May 23. The album includes the hit song “This Is Country Music” that he debuted at last year’s CMA Awards as well as his current single, “Old Alabama,” featuring Alabama.

This Is Country Music has Brad once again joining forces with longtime producer and collaborator Frank Rogers. His first new music since 2009′s  American Saturday Night, the album features  a variety of special guests, including Carrie Underwood, Don Henley, Blake Shelton, Marty Stuart, Sheryl Crow and Carl Jackson. Movie legend Clint Eastwood also makes an appearance, whistling on the instrumental track “Eastwood.”

“We wrote [it] as a Western,” Brad tells The Boot.” It’s an epic movie soundtrack-sounding Western. I’ve become friends with Clint and his wife, Dina. So I emailed Dina and said, ‘Does he whistle?’ And she said, ‘Yeah, you want him to whistle on something?’ I said, ‘I have a thing that sounds like an Ennio Morricone, the guy that did all the spaghetti western music like The Good, Bad and the Ugly, and of course it has to have [the whistles] all that kind of stuff. I asked, ‘Can he do that?’ She wrote back and said, ‘He’d love to.’”

Fans can pre-order a copy of Brad’s album at and get a download of“Old Alabama” instantly. Brad kicks off his H20 II: Wetter & Wilder tour with special guests Blake Shelton and Jerrod Niemann on May 28 at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh.
