You can add "multi-media author" to Brad Paisley's long list of professional credentials. The singer-songwriter and guitarist will release his first interactive digital book, 'Buliding a Wheelhouse,' on April 9 -- the same day he releases his new album 'Wheelhouse.'

The book explores the process of recording the new album, and is an iTunes exclusive. Along with both regular and deluxe versions of 'Wheelhouse,' the book is currently available for pre-order at iTunes.

'Building a Wheelhouse' was designed with Apple's digital book creation app, iBooks Author, and gives readers an in-depth Multi-Touch look at the upcoming album, featuring insights from Paisley and the rest of the recording and production team. The book also includes exclusive interviews, as well as videos and photo galleries.

"Southern Comfort Zone,' the first single from 'Wheelhouse,' recently became Paisley's 21st No. 1 hit. His new single 'Beat This Summer' has just been released, and is available as an instant download by pre-ordering 'Wheelhouse' at iTunes. Paisley will embark on the Beat This Summer Tour on May 9 in St. Louis.
