Brad Paisley is inviting all CMA Music Festival attendees to join him to view the first ever country music visual album – LOVE AND WAR- his newest album and 9th consecutive studio album to debut at #1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. Seating will be first come first served at the CMA Theater, Country Music Hall of Fame on Saturday, June 10 – 2:00pm.
Available to stream for a limited time exclusively on Apple Music, the LOVE AND WAR visual album represents all 16 songs from the album and flows seamlessly as a 62-minute movie to tell the complete story. Locations of the video shoots ranged from a concert in a Sleep Number store in a mall, a party at Brad’s parent’s house to the USS Midway in San Diego, CA. Brad Paisley, Dave Brown, Derek Cressman, Frank Agnone, Jeff Venable, Jim Shea and Todd Cassetty were the directors involved. Producers included Ben Skipworth, Frank Agnone, Jim Shea, Kendal Marcy, Mark Kalbfeld and Todd Cassetty, and executive producer was Kendal Marcy.
“I feel like country music is so relatable to people,” remarked Brad Paisley, “and it can take so many forms, so why be pigeonholed with the simplicity of audio when you can pair it with something creative?” Paisley continued to remark about the first country music visual album, “I hope you’ll laugh, I know you’ll cry. I hope you’ll love it as much as I do.”
