Brad Paisley [2] is featured in this Sunday’s PARADE. [3] He discusses his new album, Wheelhouse, out April 9, which contains some of his most controversial songs to date. The track “Accidental Racists” features LL Cool J and sends a message of acceptance while “Those Crazy Christians” is about religion from a nonbeliever’s perspective.

“This is what I would consider a gospel song, the most important one I’ve ever done,” Brad said of the song. “I wrote it shortly after my cousin-in-law passed away in 2011. To play the part of the skeptic is a much more powerful argument to me—in favor of [belief] as well as looking at things that are baffling.”

The material on Wheelhouse is edgier, but Brad isn’t too worried about fan reactions. “Maybe I’m naive, but I give them a lot of credit for having been with me a long time and knowing me really well,” he said. “So it’s not like with one album I’m a whole new guy.”

Parade.com’s REWIND videos this week feature exclusive interviews with Brad who dives into his favorite all-time album and explains how the Grand Ole Opry [4] is like a zoo! Watch it here. [3]
