With “River Bank” already a rising hit in Country Music, Brad Paisley spoke with the Tennessean’s Cindy Watts this weekend to share how he came to write “River Bank,” a song which explores some of his fondest childhood memories of where he grew up near the Ohio River.

“I was trying to figure out where to go from here, what to write and what felt like what I wanted to do,” Paisley says. “There’s a grove that feels like that and I think we grabbed that groove when we made this track.” 

He goes on to explain that he’s excited about the song and its potential to do good, along with his next album, what he has tentatively called Thoughts From A Bumpkin. Perhaps He should call it “Working Title: Thoughts From A Bumpkin” as a self-referentail joke to the creation of the album with his band and co-producer Luke Wooten.  

The work with Wooten reflects a new producing partner for Paisley. His last album, 2013’s Wheelhouse was self-produced and before that every album was produced or co-produced by Frank Rogers, his fellow Belmont University alum and Sea Gayle business partner.
