Country star Brad Paisley has purposefully ignored a plea from label bosses not to leak his upcoming single, just days after allowing fans to preview his whole album online.

The “Celebrity” hitmaker came under fire from Sony Music Nashville executives over the weekend after deciding to post snippets from each track from his next album, “Moonshine in the Trunk,” on his Twitter.

Sony chiefs chastised the singer for the unauthorized move and removed the clips from the Internet, but an undeterred Paisley continued to risk their wrath on Wednesday, when he shared snapshots of his email exchange with Sony’s Gary Overton, who explicitly begged the star not to leak the title track from the album.

Paisley then revealed his response to Overton, which read, “Gary- Okay. So promote the song Moonshine in the trunk -Got it!”, and proceeded to share a link to the tune’s audio on YouTube.com.

However, Sony chiefs were keeping a close eye on Paisley and minutes later the track was pulled.

In follow-up tweets, the star posted, “Did they pull it?… Darn darn darn darn Darny darn darn (sic)!!!!!!!”

Prior to the latest leak, Paisley took to his Twitter to make it clear he was not looking to get kicked off Sony, despite filing a $10 million lawsuit against them for breach of contract and unpaid royalties earlier this year.

He wrote, “Let me say: I love recording at Sony. I love my manager, my publicist, my agent. But yes, I’m doing this largely on my own.”
