    Brad Paisley Realizes the Magic of ‘Old Alabama,’ ... Duets With Carrie Underwood

    Brad Paisley Realizes the Magic of ‘Old Alabama,’ Full-Length Albums and Duets With Carrie Underwood
    By: Ashley Iasimone

    When Brad Paisley was in his late teens, he was listening to all the country music greats: Alabama, Dwight Yoakam and Vince Gill, to name a few. Now in his late 30s and on the cusp of putting out his own new album, ‘This Is Country Music,’ Paisley’s actually gotten to pull in some of his musical heroes. Alabama make an appearance on his current hit song ‘Old Alabama,’ a track that Paisley says is “almost like sampling one of their old songs” but is all about a girl who’s turned on by listening to that “back home come on music that comes from the heart.”

    Paisley, who dedicates the May 23 release of ‘This Is Country Music’ to his own love affair with country music growing up, reveals to Taste of Country the follow-up single to ‘Old Alabama’ (hint: it involves duet partner Carrie Underwood), whether he has any marriage advice to collaborator/summer tourmate/soon-to-be newlywed Blake Shelton, and why he’s just as excited to hear Lady Gaga‘s new record as he is to release his own.

    ...

    ‘Remind Me,’ your duet with Carrie Underwood, is clearly a standout track on the album. Why did you pick Carrie to sing with you on that song? Was she your go-to person to call?
    Oh, yeah. I think we’ve become really close, having toured together and become friends and co-hosting the CMAs for several years. We just get along great and sing great together. She’s probably pretty much my first choice to sing with when it comes to a duet with a woman like that. I mean, we just sort of share the same values and get along that well. And also, I just don’t think there’s a better singer than her, so it’s sort of selfish to be able to sing with her and perform. Every take sounded like that [the final recording].

    Are you considering ‘Remind Me’ as the next single?

    Yeah, definitely. I think it probably will be. I don’t think there will be any holding it back. I’ll be very excited for fans to hear this because she’s off the radio right now, you know. She doesn’t have a current single out. So that’ll work out really well.

    Yeah I'm pretty sure this is why the label didn't release another single from PO.

    I don't think the release date matters anymore. It won't be before May 23rd (maybe on the 23rd?) and after that IMO radio is going to play it.

    No, the duet hadn't happened yet when they made that decision. I think things just worked out well.

    Nice to get more confirmation about it being a single! Now to find out whether they'll be performing on the Idol finale. Brad released a list of appearances for that week and Idol is not on it (yet). :/

    It was actually really smart. If she would've had a 5th single, then right after would've been RM and then right after, her first single. the radio would've been over-saturated with carrie. its good for her to have had a break. Its just different from the carnival ride era because this break was during winter, instead of during summer. if a song is big in the summer, its REALLY big imo because i feel like people listen to the radio more. at least college kids do, I don't listen to the radio at all when im at school.

    Brad's current list of scheduled appearances for album release week:

    May 24:

    • Good Morning America
    • Letterman
    • Fox News' "Hannity"

    May 25:

    • The View

    All of those are filmed in New York. (The Idol finale is in LA). But I'm not sure if The View is filmed live or pre-taped like a lot of those kinds of shows are.

    Anyone think maybe Brad and Carrie could perform Remind Me on next week's results show (May 19th) instead of the finale? If Brad is busy with promoting the album the week of May 23rd on other shows he may not have a chance to be on Idol. Either way a performance on Idol will probably boost the sales of the song and album tremendously especially if the song is as good as everyone is making it out to be.
