In the middle of a busy CRS Week, ASCAP caught up with Brad Paisley just before his show in the Performance Hall of the Nashville Convention Center to congratulate him on his 21st No.1 song as an artist and 18th as a songwriter, “Southern Comfort Zone.” Longtime Paisley collaborators and co-writers Chris DuBois and Kelley Lovelace, as well as publishers Sea Gayle Music and EMI Music Publishing, were also congratulated at the whirlwind celebration, which took place immediately before Paisley hit the stage to debut country music’s most famous radio show, the Grand Ole Opry, at CRS on February 27th. “Southern Comfort Zone” hit the top of the charts earlier in February and is the first single from Paisley’s upcoming eigth studio album, Wheelhouse, which is set to be released on April 9th, 2013.
