After a week of leaking songs from his new album "Moonshine In The Trunk," Brad Paisley has taken things to a hilarious new level, posting messages from the Sony Label CEO on his Twitter in typical "Brad" fashion, his rep told ABC News.
In a release about the new album, Gary Overton, Chairman & CEO of Sony Music Nashville said, “Working with Brad is like riding a roller coaster: you know you’re going to scream, smile and have a wild ride...and it’s generally safe.”
He had no idea.
Paisley definitely had fun with his label all week and today, he started by tweeting "Let me say: I love recording at Sony. I love my manager, my publicist, my agent. But yes, I'm doing this largely on my own. I want this record presented to you in the spirit it was made; smuggled in a car across a dry county. So...what to do what to do."
He then posted an email sent to him from Overton -- in fun spirits, of course, because this is Paisley's fun way of promoting the album.
"I know you are really excited about your fans hearing your new music an that's why you've been leaking it on Twitter. That's cool. Wish you would have told us first. But please don't leak the song "Moonshine" because we have a big promotion planned for it," Overton sent to Paisley on July 30.

So what did Paisley do?
He responded "Okay. So promote the song ... Got it!"
Then he posted the song about an hour ago on Twitter.
So you heard the man. Promote the song "Moonshine". Here we go. Buckle up. http://t.co/MG9KUGFIbm— Brad Paisley (@BradPaisley) July 30, 2014
As of a few minutes ago, Paisley said his label pulled the song, writing "Darn darn darn darn Darny darn darn!!!!!!!"
The label may have had their plans, but they "are Brad's plans now," Paisley's rep quipped to ABC News.
Finally, Paisley joked he was dodging all calls from the label's head.
Had my ringer off...Sorry, missed your call, please leave a message at the tone and someone will get back to you. pic.twitter.com/EvjUKG5Cbe— Brad Paisley (@BradPaisley) July 30, 2014
