Brad Paisley tips his hat to those who move to Nashville with big ambitions in his just-released new track, “City of Music.” 

The track paints a picture of what it’s like for two budding stars who move to town to chase their dreams of becoming country stars. As they try to navigate life in the big city, their paths cross and the rest is history…even if their relationship doesn’t last forever. 

“So she sold him some boots on Friday, and he wore ’em on their date that night/ They sat around singing George and Tammy, and woke up in a co-write/ Maybe it’ll last forever, maybe only a week or two/ Sometimes you write the songs and sometimes the songs write you,” he sings. 

Paisley co-wrote “City of Music” alongside Lee Thomas Miller and Ross Copperman. It was produced by Ross Copperman and Luke Wooten. 

The song comes on the heels of the launch of Paisley’s 2021 Tour. A portion of process from ticket sales will benefit The Store, a nonprofit free-referral based grocery store co-founded by Paisley and his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley.

Next up, the superstar will take the stage at Nashville’s 4th of July celebration, Let Freedom Sing!, which will also feature performances from Lilly Hiatt, Regi Wooten, Priscilla Black, and more.
