Brad Paisley is officially in the thick of album promotion leading up to Moonshine in the Trunk, his 11th studio album due out later this month.

In fact, while lead single “River Bank” continues to make the rounds at radio, Paisley is ready to go with the next sample from the new record in “Perfect Storm,” released today (Aug. 5).

“Perfect Storm,” the third song on Moonshine, is a mid-tempo country rocker that finds Paisley singing about a girl that would be a “single barrel Bourbon on ice” if she were a drink.

Paisley equates his lady to many things, chief among them a thunderstorm. “She destroys me in that t-shirt,” he sings on the chorus. “And I love her so much it hurts / I never meant to fall like this / But she don’t just rain, she pours / That girl right there’s the perfect storm.”

As he settles on the word “storm,” the song’s electric guitar rumbles and rises suddenly, as though it’s emulating a clap of thunder.

Paisley also previewed a snippet of the song on his YouTube page on Monday (Aug. 4).

“Perfect Storm” follows “River Bank” as songs released from Moonshine in the Trunk, not counting special bonus track “Me and Jesus,” debuted via a snippet Saturday (Aug. 2). The song is dedicated to Kent Brantly, the American doctor infected with the Ebola virus.
