The big BP news keeps rolling in.

Brad Paisley has announced the release of his ninth studio album on August 16.

The word comes one day after the rumor mill began churning out reports Brad has signed on to judge ABC’s new singing competition Rising Star.

While there’s no confirmation on that just yet, Brad is confirmed to return to Good Morning America to perform as part of their Summer Concert Series on August 19.

Brad’s current single “River Bank” is the first release from the as-of-yet untitled new album.
