Well looky what we have here. It seems that Brad Paisley's been keeping a secret and has a surprise for everyone who buys his new CD "This is Country Music" - and I'm not talking about the digital copy, I'm talking about the actual go down to Wal-Mart and pick up your copy copy.
Jeff, who writes on the blog Musings at the Ploughboy Mansion, got an advance copy of Brad's upcoming CD and was happily surprised to see that inside the package was the announcement that Brad has a new book coming out...his very first.
From Jeff's blog...
The surprise came from inside the packaging -- a small glossy ad announcing: :"BRAD'S First Book Ever." Yes, Diary Of A Player will be available in stores in November. Co-written with David Wild, the book's subtitle is "How my musical heroes made a guitar man out of me."
Here's a description of the book from the announcement: "Brad's first book is a very personal story of how he developed into the musician and guitar aficionado he is today. Brad tells the story of his own musical passion, while writing loving salutes and sharing memorable tales about the great players in country, blues and rock & roll who have inspired him over the years."
How cool is that? So "This is Country Music" on May 23rd and a copy of Diary of a Player sometime in November....sounds like a plan to me.
UPDATE: Okay, I didn't google before I posted so now I know that it's not a secret and the book news actually went around the web back in October that Brad had a book coming out. Yeah, I'm not always on the ball.
Oh well, still excited here.
