BRAD PAISLEY So, you’ve probably heard of the six-minute facepalm that is “Accidental Racist.” Yes, there was a whole album — Wheelhouse — but let’s be real, the other 16 tracks are going to spend a lot of time in the shadow of this awkward, sentimental mope through surface-level race relations. On paper, the lyrics read like poorly conceived punch lines about rebel flags and do-rags, yet they’re dragged out into a lighters-in-the-air Nashville ballad that never seems to end. It’s a nice idea — that two dudes would sit down for a beer, regardless of ethnicity — yet it’s wrapped in self-serious dreck that, if not for the sheer depth of cheese, would seem like a troll move. Even the best comedians make a regrettable — or even openly bad — joke once in a while: if only that’s what the man behind the excellence of “Online” and “Ticks” was doing here.
