OFFSTAGE: Jason Sudeikis Is No Brad Paisley

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

FYI, Jason Sudeikis: Brad Paisley does not sound like
Foghorn Leghorn. I get that you may not have had a lot of time to hone that impression for this past weekend’s Saturday
Night Live
skit. But next time, just know that Paisley’s more of a soft-spoken guy without quite that Southern of a drawl.
And he’s not so much a hoot ‘n holler kind of guy like you made him out to be. But I get it. The funny part was how the Paisley
character and LL Cool J (played by Kenan Thompson) were trying to defend their song “Accidental Racist” after all the controversy
when Paisley’s Wheelhouse album was recently released. Sudeikis’ Paisley said the tune was just another country song
with a story to tell. “What I wanted to do was show folks the gritty racial reality of a man in Starbucks talking to his barista,”
he said. Then he and Thompson went on to sing a verse from the song that never made it on the record, about how “at least
we ended racism for good.” After the skit, Paisley took to Twitter to post a picture of Sudeikis and Thompson. “Well,
we wanted to start the conversation. This is fantastic,” Paisley wrote.
