Brad Paisley Wants To Surprise With New Album Wheelhouse

(Radio.com) In celebration of the release of his brand-new album Wheelhouse, Brad Paisley is our latest IMPACT artist. Wheelhouse is the country superstar's ninth studio album, and it hit stores and digital outlets today, April 9.

For the first time, Brad chose to produce the album himself, and to record it with his road band in a studio on his property in Tennessee.

And like the process, he wanted the songs themselves to be a challenge for him, too. "Every song was meant to incorporate something new for me, and to take some sort of twist you don't expect," Paisley explained in his press notes. "Whether that be the lyric or the loop or the guest, or a different format like rap, or getting a comedian like Eric Idle, it needed to spin your head around somewhere."

"It's like my dog when you say his name followed by a command he doesn't understand. He's like, 'Huh?' And he turns his head a little sideways. That's what I wanted every song to do."

The album's first single was "Southern Comfort Zone," which fans are well familiar with now, as the song made it all the way to Number One. But as Brad explains, he "never dreamed it would be a single." The song was initially envisioned as simply the first track on the album. Brad describes it as a "mission statement" for the album that "basically says, 'here's where we're going, here's where we're headed.' Which is, 'we're going to see the world, we're going to break down boundaries, we're going to leave our comfort zones.'" more.
