    Brad Paisley’s drive for perfection pays off

    Brad Paisley

    From that point on, from his record label’s perspective, getting Paisley to be completely satisfied with the finished product was like pulling teeth. His label group Sony Music Nashville had to keep pushing back the release date.
    “He really works hard to finish the record, and then deadline came and it was like, ‘Come on, Brad. We’re really up against it, dude. We’ve really got to get this done.’ He was like, ‘I need two more weeks,’ ” recalls Gary Overton, chairman and CEO at Sony Music Nashville.
    Paisley got his extra time and came back with the Underwood duet “Remind Me” — a standout on the record and a song that seems destined to be a single. He was so sure it was a hit that he called Underwood and asked her to sing on it long before he and co-writers DuBois and Kelley Lovelace had even finished the verses.
    “I sung the verse (over the phone) and … I’m mumbling through,” he says. “I said, ‘Try this: When I get to this point (in the song), sing “remind me,” ’ and she does. And she goes, ‘I like that.’ I said, ‘I do, too.’ If I finish it, will you do it? She said, ‘If it’s any good, I’ll do it.’ I said, ‘I’ll get it good, or I won’t ask.’ ”

    I am still deciding if I should buy a physical copy or a digital copy. I am definitely getting RM from Itunes, but as for Brad's album, I am still unsure.

    Based on what we have seen, RM will not initially be available for individual download. You will only be able to get it if you buy the album. We are still not sure whether the album will be available tonight or tomorrow night on iTunes. The album will definitely be in stores tomorrow.

    The question comes up because on iTunes Brad's album is listed as "Expected May 24, 2011", which is Tuesday. But we know the album will be released on Monday, May 23. Most likely, noone bothered to update the listing to reflect the true release date and it will be available tonight. But the fact that the listing says May 24 leaves at least a question about that happening.

    I like Overton's comments about going to Brad's home studio and hearing Carrie through the floor singing and he goes, "Wow". lol

    Love the way he talks about it. I hope this song will not only be a no.1 single but a smash hit.
