Brad Paisley to Be Featured on Rolling Stones Best-Of Album, ‘Honk’
Brad Paisley was a surprise addition to the Rolling Stones' Philadelphia concert in 2013 — a show that will live on in song. The country star appeared to sing "Dead Flowers" with the band on their 50 and Counting Tour, and now, the live recording of the performance will be featured on a new album.
Honk impacts on April 19.
Also featured on the Stones' new album are collaborations with Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl (performing "Bitch") and Florence Welch on "Wild Horses." The album will feature the band's biggest hits from every studio album from 1971 on, with 36 Stones essential studio tracks and 10 live songs in total.
Paisley and Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger have worked together multiple times, including on a song called "Drive of Shame" for the country star's 2017 album Love & War.
"I've been ripping the Rolling Stones off with every song I write in some form or another. We’ll all ripping them off, every artist who's ever played anything near what they do," Paisley tells Rolling Stone in an interview.
Paisley also covered "Dead Flowers" when the band headlined Nashville's LP Field in 2015. He went onto tell Rolling Stone about the album Sticky Fingers, which he says is "a country album in so many ways. [Mick’s] a pretty darn important country artist."
Next up for Paisley is a spring and summer headlining tour featuring openers Chris Lane and Riley Green. The Rolling Stones are also touring the States in 2019 — their No Filter Tour starts this spring, too.
