Brad Paisley's next album comes out this week! 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 include the poem  'Thoughts from a Bumpkin.' That's what he said the working title was earlier this spring  -- 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 been  a  judge  and mentor on a new ABC reality singing competition show called 'Rising Star.'
