Brad Paisley to Perform on ‘Rising Star’ Finale

The first season of ‘Rising Star’ is coming to an end, but not without a big bang. The finale will include a performance by the show’s country judge, Brad Paisley.

For the past couple of months, Paisley has been busy once a week. The ‘River Bank’ singer was enlisted this season as a judge on the new reality show with pop princess Kesha and rapper Ludacris. Paisley’s been holding it down for country music and has been able to show his personality (and sense of humor) on the show, but like all good things, the season is coming to an end.

Before ‘Rising Star’ wraps up this season, Paisley will get to show his skills as a country singer — and rockin’ guitar player. He’s taking the stage for the show’s finale, and he’ll be performing one of the tracks from his upcoming album ‘Moonshine in the Trunk.’ The finale airs this Sunday (Aug. 24) on ABC, but which track will it be? He hasn’t announced yet but it’ll be one of 14 tracks on the album, which include his single ‘River Bank’ and his duet with Carrie Underwood, ‘High Life.’

Paisley has been on a roll, leaking lots of his new music on various sources and with some of his famous friends (including fellow judge Ludacris). His record label is fighting back — in a fun way. They sent the singer’s email address out, which means lots of fan mail for Paisley. Read more about the incident here.
