Brad Paisley Teases New Duet ‘Without a Fight’
Brad Paisley's new single "Without a Fight" is a collaboration with ... someone.
In a short video posted at his Twitter page, Paisley plays a raw guitar riff alongside a mystery person. He or she is blurred out, so all we can tell for sure is that they have dark hair, and they're dancing to his riff.
Of course, there's no shortage of speculation about who Paisley is teaming up with. Several country music radio stations are insinuating he's teamed with pop star Demi Lovato, and the evidence is overwhelming. After Midnite host Cody Alan points out that a silhouette of the mystery star used in an industry email looks like Lovato. She and Paisley also paired up to sing her song "Stone Cold" at the iHeartRadio Music Awards. Afterward, Lovato sent this cheeky tweet:
A search of the #WithoutAFight hashtag on Twitter and Instagram shows that the pop star's fans are convinced she'll be joining Paisley on his new song. There's even a single album cover circulating, although it's not certain if it's the official cover.
Paisley is no stranger to collaborations. Some of his best include Carrie Underwood (“Remind Me”), Alison Krauss (“Whiskey Lullaby”) Dolly Parton (“When I Get Where I’m Going”) and Keith Urban (“Start a Band”).
"Without a Fight" is set to be revealed to radio and the world on Friday morning (May 13), but Paisley has proven in the past that he's not one to stick to a script. When releasing his most recent Moonshine in the Trunk album, he shared the details of most songs before his record label could execute their plans.
Paisley also announced his 2016 Life Amplified World Tour this week. Maddie & Tae and Tyler Farr will open for the singer when he begins on May 19 in Sacramento, Calif. Look for him at Country Jam in Grand Junction, Colo. on June 17.
