Brad Paisley doesn't like the title of Paul McCartney's new album "Kisses on the Bottom". He calls it terrible, writing on his Twitter, "It's only February, but Sir Paul is an absolute lock for worst album title of the year." He adds, "Actually, maybe all time."

The "Remind Me" singer goes on to criticize Mecca's choice of title for his newly-released album, "It's like he's kidding." The country music crooner continues, "He's got to be kidding. Tell me he's changing the title back to the real one, right? Oh then how we'll laugh and laugh."

"If Paul's album was called 'KissesOnTheBum' it could be about a hobo. But I can't think of even 1 other thing KissesOnTheBottom could even mean. Even 'Kisses on the Butt' would be better, could mean cigarette. Or heck,'kisses on the ass', possibly a beloved pet donkey. But bottom?Nope."

In his next posting, Paisley slams people who work for the former member of The Beatles. "Dear Team of 'Yes Men' surrounding Sir Paul: you really have taken it to a new level. No one said..'uh, Sir,uh..what maybe..'," he states.

"Kisses on the Bottom" was released in the United States on February 7. The title was taken from the lyrics in Fats Waller's "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter", one of the classic songs which he covers on the album.

McCartney was very well aware that the title might spark controversy. On why he insisted in using it, he explained to Sunday Times, "I like mischief. It's good for the soul, it's always a good idea - if only because people think it's a bad idea."

He recalled the day he came to the label and told them about the title he wanted to use. "I made the suggestion and got this nervous text from the label which said 'Paul, under no circumstances can we do this'. One of the guys said he felt like he'd been punched in the gut," he said.

Hey marks-a-lot, I suggest you check out some Brad Paisley videos on Youtube, or go to his concert before you call him a one hit wonder, or very limited in talent. Many people have called Paisley the "Angus Young of Country music." He is entitled to his opinion and I am sure he is not the only one that has that opinion. You want to see how wise "sir" Paul McCartney is, just google his little episode with the seal hunt in eastern Canada. He thought he was in Newfoundland when he was actually on Prince Edward Island, and then on Larry King live, then Newfoundland premier Danny Williams made him look like an absolute idiot. I would a lot sooner my kids follow Mr Paisley's role model then "Sir" Paul's. Brad Paisley wasn't in anyway insulting McCartney's personality, but was simply saying he didnt like his album name, why is that such a sin???

Perhaps the youngster disrespecting Sir McCartney should look up Paul's awards with and after The Beatles and the amount of Beatle recordings STILL being sold. I'd say Beatle cd's out sell Paisley cd's even now. Brad the best thing you can do is shut up.

puuuhleeeeease, those of you who claim NOT to know who Brad Paisley is should go look him up. As far as musicianship... McCartney couldn't hold a CANDLE to him. Even "sir's" label didn't like the title. What did Paul do with all his money that he needs to still be making music instead of sitting back enjoying his retirement?

Paisley is an idiot. Many people have covered that song, including several excellent country renditions. It's the first thing I thought of when I read the title. Of course Paisley is a very limited in talent, just above a one hit wonder, and obviously way below average intelligence.

I liked Brad Paisley a bit until I heard about this. Who is Brad Paisley to be criticizing Paul McCartney ? Please. Sweets licks on his bass guitar Brad. Duh... You just dealt a major dum Hillbilly blow to Country music.Mister " I'd like to check you for Ticks"! How bright a title is that for a song Mister "Barn Boss" ?

I understand that you don't know a thing about music Paisley (after all you play country) but the bass line is sometimes referred to as "the bottom". And kisses are kind of like "licks". That's a term used by guitarists. It refers to a musical motif or melodic line. Do you think you can figure it out from there?

If he means her bottom and assuming it looks hot, why not? Paisley is not the cat's meow or is he?

He could have called it, " 'Taint sweet kisses on the bottom!"
