Country singer Brad Paisley on Tuesday (April 9) defended his new duet with rapper LL Cool J, which has been criticized for its commentary on U.S. race relations. "Accidental Racist" is a track from Paisley's ninth album, "Wheelhouse," which was released on Tuesday. The song describes a hypothetical encounter between a Confederate flag-wearing white Southern man and an urban African-American man in a coffee shop. Some critics have disparaged the song's content and artistry.
