Mystery Solved: Brad Paisley Duets with Demi Lovato

ABC/Image Group LA

For more than a week, Brad Paisley’s been teasing the mystery woman in his life, in both the country music trades and on social media. Ads for his new single featured the distinctive silhouette of a female, only identified by a question mark.

Thursday on social media, country music’s biggest prankster couldn’t keep the secret any longer. “Drumroll… It’s @ddlovato!” he tweeted, identifying his musical partner as pop star Demi Lovato. You should start hearing their collaboration, “Without a Fight,” on Friday.  Brad’s big reveal also featured a video of the two at work in the studio together, though the background track included only a guitar riff, but no vocals.

As it turns out, this isn’t the first time the two have worked together. Last month, Brad played guitar for Demi as she sang “Stone Cold” during a TV appearance at The Forum in Inglewood, California.
