Brad Paisley’s ‘Wheelhouse’

Brad Paisley’s ‘Wheelhouse’ Of Good Songs — And Intentions : NPR.

I’m admittedly not a big country fan outside of Johnny Cash.  But, I caught the Fresh Air review of the album and it intrigued me enough to give it a listen, mostly for the semi-controversial collaboration with LL Cool J.  That was just OK, seems like it was spliced together late in the game.

The rest of the album is pretty listenable.  Reminds me a lot of Hootie and the Blowfish, and the Darius’ more country oriented stuff since.  I think my favorite track is Karate, where an abused wife learns karate and then roughs up her husband (echoing Enough).  Of course, having Charlie Daniels on the track doesn’t hurt.

Give it a shot, you might be surprised.
