Friday All American Morning News with Eric Scott on 103.3 The Country Extreme
1/11/2013 (Courtesy TheBoot.com) — Good Morning! Fans who tuned into “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” Wednesday night (Jan. 9) to see Brad Paisley perform his latest single, “Southern Comfort Zone,” also learned the title to the upcoming CD on which it appears. Wheelhouse will be the singer-songwriter’s ninth studio album, with a release date forthcoming. However, prior to the announcing the name, Jimmy Kimmel teased Brad, saying he should call the project Thriller, after Michael Jackson‘s legendary record.
“That’s a great idea,” Brad agreed. “If you’re lucky, they’ll mess up all the royalty checks. I was thinking about Red. Anyone named their album Red lately? Would that do well?”
Luckily, Brad let Taylor Swift take that title for her three-times platinum record, and explained why he settled on Wheelhouse for his. “It’s all about leaving your comfort zone, this album,” he explained. “It’s like, what is my wheelhouse? The baseball expression, what’s in your strike zone, where are you comfortable? We really have tried to go out on a limb with this record and see how far we can stretch through things.”
