    OFFSTAGE: Did Eminem Inspire Brad Paisley? (small Carrie mention)

    CMT News
    OFFSTAGE: Did Eminem Inspire Brad Paisley?
    June 23, 2011; Written by Alison Bonaguro

    The power of a female voice. Brad Paisley knows all about it now that he has a song -- "Remind Me" -- that so beautifully showcases the potent pipes of Carrie Underwood. (Although it's not the first time he's hooked up with a female singer. He'd done so before with his "Whiskey Lullaby" duet seven years ago with Alison Krauss.) But in a recent radio interview, Paisley said he was influenced this time by other genres. "People like Eminem, Kanye, Jay-Z and people will do stuff that incorporate a female singing some lyrics, where they sing this part that's sort of from the woman's perspective," Paisley said. "And I thought that's an untapped thing that we need to try a little more of in this format, I think, which is an actual duet written to be that, that doesn't work any other way." I don't care where Paisley got the idea. I'm just happy he got it, because this song is one of his best ever.

    I am really amazed of Alison this time because she really gave Carrie a great compliment. She is sure getting warm towards Carrie these days; she probably slowly realizing how talented and great artist Carrie is.

    I wouldnt say for a long long time. Probably few months or less than a year. Her write ups about Carrie in the past had some subtle sarcasm. But I think she is changing her tune ang getting warmer towards Carrie. Maybe it's just me who noticed it but I definitely felt it. And I dont imply that Alison is mean to Carrie. She has a favourite.
