VIDEO: Brad Paisley explains why he leaked 'Moonshine In The Trunk'

By Kellie Michaels. CREATED Aug 26, 2014

Brad Paisley says he is going to miss leaking "Moonshine." He made the admission in a video released at about the same time as this week's official release of his new album, "Moonshine in the Trunk."

Brad posted the video on his Facebook page. In it, he explains why he leaked every song on the album ahead of the announced release date, all without the consent of his record label.

"It came down to me wanting to present these songs to the world in the best way possible," Brad explains. "It's all about connecting dots and letting you hear this record the way I intended the first time."

Brad goes on to reflect on the controversy over the song "Accidental Racist" on his previous album. "Last time I released an album I had some things hijacked and I didn't get to be the person to explain myself right off the bat," he says. "There was a lot of speculation. This time, I got to be the person to present this to the world."

Brad ends the video by admitting that he will miss "leaking moonshine," but says he has some ideas for other fun things he can still do on the Internet "now that we have this little understanding."
