COWBOY NEWS Country Music Headlines
Brad Paisley and his label are locking horns over his leaking snippets of his new album, Moonshine in the Trunk, by way of a YouTube video over the weekend.
Brad posted the video on Twitter with the message, "I'm going rogue. The label doesn't know I'm doing this. Seriously. But I made a Moonshine preview teaser. Don't tell."
Brad received texts from his label and management asking him to quit posting music since it's wrecking their marketing plans, so he did the next best thing — he had his Rising Star buddy Ludacris post the second part of the preview instead.
Moonshine in the Truck releases on August 26th.
Though the preview of part one is no longer available, part two is still available for listening.
And if Brad weren't in enough trouble with the label, here's a snippet of the remix of "River Bank" with Colt Ford. Download

The Five Most Unflattering Summer Photos
We show a lot more skin in the summer, and take a ton of photos… which isn't always a good combo. According to a new survey, here are the five most unflattering summer photos you can take:
1. Photos in your bathing suit, where you're sitting down and leaning forward, so your gut is front and center.
2. Any photo that shows off your muffin top.
3. Photos with a double chin. Which isn't really a "summer" thing, just a bad look in general.
4. Photos where you're obviously drunk.
5. A photo after you've just gotten out of the pool and your hair is wet. It works for swimsuit models . . . but not for mere mortals, apparently.
The survey also found that the number one reason for deleting a photo is because we think we look CHUBBY in it.
