on N P R this morn : Accidental Racist?--I'm unsure about this title but I am more unsure why folks find this so "controversial." Nothing in this song is shocking, really, & I was raised in the "Southland"--really it's just a poorly written song with a title bent on eliciting a reaction, for better or worse. I've heard Paisley's music & he's usually much better than this. Folks need more & better tolerance, especially in the South, though RACE is an issue everywhere, is not just a southern problem. The genre of music can spread this message more than any other medium in the US. Nothing here should be so shocking though (to anyone)...it is 2013.
Brad Paisley has released a new song and it is a controversial one, to say the least.
