Brad Paisley's next album has a due date. Fans can expect his new album to hit stores on August 26, but that's about all he's sharing at this point.

Paisley's ninth studio album will include his current single 'River Bank,' and will likely not be called 'Thoughts from a Bumpkin.' That's what he said the working title was last month -- he also shared he built a bar in his studio for the band to choose drinks from while recording.

The result is "some of the best songs I've ever hooked," he says of the cuts penned between January and March.

Three days after the new album drops Paisley will be on 'Good Morning America,' performing for their summer concert series. This should be a big year for the singer. He's also rumored to be a judge on a new ABC reality singing competition show called 'Rising Star.' On June 14 Paisley will headline the Taste of Country Music Festival at Hunter Mountain.
