Country superstar Brad Paisley reached out to some famous friends in the rock world while working on his new Love and War album, which found him co-writing and sharing vocals with collaborators including Mick Jagger and John Fogerty.
Rolling Stone spoke with Paisley about his work with Jagger on the song “Drive of Shame,” which he said stemmed from a meeting the duo had when the Rolling Stones played in Nashville in 2015. Recalling that he suggested Jagger stop by his place to work on some music, Paisley said Jagger casually responded ‘Let’s do that’ and later “booked a flight and kind of came in unexpected.”
The song, which you can check out above, lives up to its title by looking at the morning after a potentially ill-advised fling. “Everybody talks about the walk of shame, but you’re probably getting in the car at the end of that,” explained Paisley, adding that he wanted to adopt a more rock-friendly feel for the track. “It wasn’t going to be ‘Whoa Mule’ or ‘Will the Circle Be Unbroken.’ I wanted to make sure the guitar part felt like something from that world.”
Paisley worked with Fogerty on the title track, which a press release says attempts to “[address] the mistreatment of veterans.” The pair met up on the USS Midway aircraft carrier in San Diego to film the track’s official video, which you can take a look at below. Love and War is out and available for purchase now.
