Before Paisley revealed the name of his new album, Jimmy Kimmel suggested he name the new album Thriller to which Paisley said he liked but he’d decided on Wheelhouse.

“It’s all about leaving your comfort zone,” explains Paisley about the album’s title. “It’s like, ‘What is my wheelhouse?’ You know, the baseball expression, sort of what is in your strike zone, your wheelhouse, where you’re comfortable. We really have tried to go out on a limb with this record and see how far we can stretch certain things.”
