Editors’ Notes

Brad Paisley courts controversy with "Accidental Racist," a track that pulls in LL Cool J to messily discuss the meaning of the rebel flag on a Lynyrd Skynyrd T-shirt, black men with their pants hung low, LL's doo-rag, Robert E. Lee, and Abraham Lincoln. Paisley's a complicated country singer. He's a member of the Grand Ole Opry who here works with artists as non-country as LL Cool J, Mat Kearney, and Monty Python's Eric Idle. Wheelhouse features "Southern Comfort Zone" about his love for the American South and the world outside of it, which showed and taught him things he'd never imagined. The world's a complicated place, and Paisley hopes to open minds on both sides of the Mason-Dixon line—and if that means having Charlie Daniels rap, then that's what Paisley's going to do. He struggles with his thoughts and isn't always eloquent, but "Those Crazy Christians" praises people's good works without getting mired in dogma.

Customer Reviews

A Resounding Triumph

The message of this album is all about taking risks, daring to move beyond comfort zones and the proverbial stagnancy that creeps up in life. And on "Wheelhouse," Brad Paisley does just that (though to imply his music was stagnant before would be a gross misconception). This record is a resounding triumph, a testament not only to Paisley's musicianship and skill, but also to his passion and commitment and unwavering pursuit of excellence. He dared to move beyond his comfort zone, and it paid off. Make no mistake: this is the Paisley we've come to know and love (well-written and relatable story-songs; fantastic guitar work; unrestrained country spirit), but with so much more. Paisley pushes himself musically and succeeds; he covers topics and themes that give this album tremendous weight. He even produced it himself, and the organic feel of the production is utterly refreshing. In life, the only way to truly grow is to take risks. With "Wheelhouse," Paisley proves this once again—though he didn't merely grow. He soared.

This is what is wrong with people.

This is what is wrong with people. He has put out completely different songs on different albums and he does one thing that is too different from you and you fold on him. Don't call yourself a fan of him. You can like his songs, but if you like Brad Paisley you know that what he stands for is embracing change and going further than before. Most current country music fans think George Strait is the perfect representation of country but when he was realeasing music people thought he was radical. So stop calling him a sell out. Just because you dont like it, doesnt mean it is bad.

To everyone who says he lost his talent please stop listening to music. You obviously know nothing about music development. If you want to delete all his music because you feel betrayed then fine. We didnt want to call you a fellow Brad Paisley fan anyway. Some people are far too ignorant to change and are missing the messages sent by Paisley to his fans in this album.

Awesome record

This whole album was done without any of the usual record producers he isn't trying to please anyone. He is leaving his wheelhouse making this album. That was the whole point. He is experimenting. I thought country fans were loyal. I guess not. I think it will be a great album. Brad is still my favorite artist and guitarist.

Biography

Born: October 28, 1972 in Glen Dale, WV

Genre: Country

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Arguably the preeminent male country artist to emerge in the 2000s, Brad Paisley cannily blended the past with the present, paying constant tribute to his forefathers — when he reached the top of the charts, he still found space for Little Jimmy Dickens and George Jones in his videos — but pushing the music forward into the new millennium, expanding its sonic and thematic possibilities. This sense of adventure could be heard on 2009's American Saturday Night, a big-hearted and eclectic...
