If you didn’t tune into the ACM Awards this past Sunday, then the only thing you really need to know is that there is a lot of talk about the “Accidental Racist” performance with Brad Paisley and LL Cool J. The song dives deeply into many of the issues that still run rapid in America like racial tension, political unrest and regional rivalry, you know, the  same old same old.

Many outlets such as Gawker and Vulture named the song “worst song ever” while The Hairpin labeled it a “lyrical disgrace”, but that didn’t stop Brad Paisley from defending it.

“So, as you buy this album, I hope it triggers emotions. I hope you feel joy, heartache, triumph, surprise; you laugh, cry, nudge someone beside you,” he wrote on Twitter about the album the song will be featured on. “I hope the album rocks you, soothes you, raises questions, answers, evokes feelings, all the way through until Officially Alive,” Paisley continued, but ended his defense with a simple, “Cause I wouldn’t change a thing.”

The song featured lines such as, “I’m just a white man comin’ to you from the southland/Tryin’ to understand what it’s like not to be/I’m proud of where I’m from but not everything we’ve done/And it ain’t like you and me can re-write history/Our generation didn’t start this nation.”

If you aren’t one to get offended easily, then check out the song right here:

  1. Ahaa, its fastidious dialogue about this piece of writing here at this website, I have read all that, so at this time me
    also commenting here.

  2. So if this will be the case, why is espresso
    considered more caffeinated than the usual regular cup of java.
    On the contrary, perhaps a regular mug of coffee would do just
    fine in the microwave, but an espresso have to be reheated through a steamer
    in order to have the top flavor possible. There are
    a few qualities of a coffee machine that you simply should take note of when you might be reading the reviews.

  3. Altogether, you will have three different groups of Kenwood hand blenders you
    could possibly select from to best suit your needs.
    Hand blenders are versatile kitchen equipment that will grind and mash various vegetables and fruit to suit your different needs.

    A hand blender may be used in pitchers, pots, bowls, along with some glasses while a hand mixer can
    only be used with bigger containers.

  4. And here’s a good tip: if your bag’s cleaning instructions call for air
    drying in a tumble dryer, try throwing a few tennis balls in
    with the sleeping bag. Take a few of your childs books to the store
    with you and load up the pack, to see if it will be comfortable.
    When our level of motivation is low we are a like a car without fuel.

  5. Moreover there have been many interactive toys that are inspired
    by the Lego toys. Large sailing ships are always popular Lego sets if sales on
    the secondary market are anything to go by. The characters included are
    Rebel pilot Zev Sensca and three Rebel Troopers wearing cold weather clothing and Hoth helmets and they’ll help you defend the hidden Rebel base on ice planet Hoth against the attack of the Empire.
