With three GRAMMYs®, 14 Academy of Country Music Awards and 14 Country Music Association Awards including
Entertainer of the Year, Brad Paisley is one of the most recognized artists in the history of country music. On April 9, Brad continues his evolution of country music with the release of his highly-anticipated new studio album, Wheelhouse.

It’s all about leaving your comfort zone,” explains Paisley about the album’s title. “It’s like, what is my wheelhouse? You know,the baseball expression, sort of what is in your strike zone, your wheelhouse, where you’re comfortable. We really have
tried to go out on a limb with this record and see how far we can stretch certain things.”

Wheelhouse also allowed Brad to produce the album on his own for the first time in his career. Wheelhouse’s first single “Southern Comfort Zone” is Paisley’s fastest rising song of his career and will allow for 2 hit singles at radio prior to the album’s launch. Likewise, the video for “Southern Comfort Zone,” a fan favorite, rapidly climbed the charts
to the #4 position at CMT in a matter of a few weeks.

    A change of pace Paisley album that throws some curves, April 15, 2013

    “Wheelhouse” is closer to “Play”, his guitar album (which
    I admittedly enjoy much more than this CD), than
    its predecessor “This is Country Music.” Paisley writes in the
    liner notes that this album was intentionally created to be
    a different compilation and he is correct. If you are looking
    for a standard Brad Paisley album, you’re better off
    selecting “American Saturday Night”, “This is Country Music”,
    or “Fifth Gear.” Those albums feature much more of his
    signature sound, song choice, and delivery that listeners
    are used to. All of that being said, “Wheelhouse”
    is not a flop. The lyrics to “Southern Comfort Zone” and “Beat This Summer”
    are similar to Brad’s usual fare, even if the instrumentals
    have a slicker production quality. What sets this album
    apart from the rest of his catalogue are the multiple interludes
    (i.e. the wacky “Heart Attack” featuring Eric Idle), attempts to
    cover more serious territory (“Accidental Racist” featuring LL Cool J),
    as well as songs that are tailored to the overall sound and flow of this album
    (“Harvey Bodine”, and “Death of a Single Man”).
    In short, the album sounds more like an indy record that was created
    by an artist who is exploring new territory as opposed to a more
    typical Nashville mainstream production. As Brad says, the album
    may not be for everyone, but hopefully, it’s for you.
    I don’t think that I will be listening to this album on a daily
    basis, but as an occasional change of pace, probably.

    Accidental Racist?!, September 3, 2013

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Wheelhouse (MP3 Music)
    I usually like some of Brad Paisley’s songs. It gets to be where his songs sound the same with few exceptions such as Old Alabama and We danced as well as a lot of his older music that wasn’t so “campy”. Brad Paisley is a phenomenal guitar player. I usually only buy one or two songs at a time bc of the novelty of some songs and bc of them being over played already on the radio. I happened to be listening to a song on the radio the other day and was floored. It completely made me feel 100% where I needed to be at that moment. It is the song I can’t change the world. I fell in love with it and decided to buy it and seeing that he had paired up with Dierks Bentley and Mat Kearney I decided to buy the whole album. I even laughed at the song Karate about a not so funny topic “spousal abuse” and a wife getting even with a abusive husband. But then I saw (after the purchase) that there was a song called accidental racist. Where he pairs up with LL Cool J. I love LL’s old stuff as well and decided I would give it a listen thinking it would be a campy song as well. What I got Floored me in an opposite way. It was Brad Paisley apologizing for wearing a Lynrd Skynrd Tshirt bc he didnt realize it would offend someone and that he was just being a fan of the band. He was basically apologizing for voicing his right to wear whatever he wanted bc it wasnt PC and it would offend someone. The song then goes into the LL Cool J Verse where he tells Brad that he shouldn’t judge him due to the baggy pants he wears and the chains he has around his neck. Just because he looks like a thug doesn’t mean that he is one. Does that not contradict what Brad just sang at that point? Why would I apologize for you bc a bands logo happens to be a confederate flag? Just bc I wear that doesn’t mean I’m a racist just like your chains and baggy pants don’t make you a thug. You shouldn’t tell me something offends you bc you’re judging me and then get mad when I judge you by your appearance. I gave it three stars bc of Paisley’s guitar skills and musical ability as well as the song I can’t change the world but this is by far one of the worst songs I’ve ever heard.
