Fans might be scratching their heads a bit, now that the track list for Brad Paisley's upcoming Wheelhouse album
has been revealed. The squeaky-clean country star has included eye-opening song titles such as "Accidental Racist" and "Those Crazy Christians" on his eighth studio album, along with "Death of a Married Man" and
"Death of a Single Man." The titles certainly reflect the lauded songwriter's creative abilities with a pen, but just what are these songs about? The answers prove Brad
is pushing the lyrical envelope more than ever before.
"Accidental Racist" addresses the detrimental stamp that slavery put on our nation's history. Brad's buddy, LL Cool J
collaborates on the track, adding lyrics about racial harmony. "Brad's not afraid to express himself," the legendary rapper tells Parade magazine
in a feature article on Wheelhouse
. "What other country artist, or any artist right now, talks about slavery?"
