    REVIEW: Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood – Remind Me

    REVIEW: Brad Paisley & Carrie Underwood – Remind Me
    Written by keepinitcountry on Jul-14-11 6:36am
    From: keepinitcountryblog.com

    After the announcement that Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will be returning to host the CMA Awards again this November, their duet on Brad’s new album, “This Is Country Music,” should be shooting up the charts. There’s no reason for it not to be a hit: putting together two of the most recognizable voices in country music today is a guaranteed hit. “Remind Me” is a haunting tune about two lovers whose relationship has fallen apart and they’re left wondering why. I don’t think there is anyone else in country music who could make this duet as good as it is. The song was meant for Brad and Carrie, and probably Brad’s best duet yet.

    While Brad is great on the song, it’s Carrie’s vocals that bring it home. A beautiful single, once Carrie joins the song it brings it to a whole other level. The hype for the song may have been bigger than Brad’s entire album, but in the end, it lives up to the hype. The song demands that the vocalists give it the attention it deserves: and the two friends do it justice and then some. It might be one of the strongest duets yet this year.

    Once Carrie jumps in to the song you get chills. Her vocals are perfect, (when aren’t they?), and it might be the first time she actually delivers those haunting vocals on a track. While she has had pretty songs in the past with sad themes, she never really could deliver them to make you feel them. That all changed this time around, as Carrie has grown as a singer… who knew that was possible with her? Not to ignore Brad’s talents on this song, he compliments her voice perfectly. There is no better pairing on the charts yet this year than Carrie and Brad.

    Both characters in the song, presumed to be husband and wife, trade memories and one-liners back and forth throughout the verses. You can actually feel the longing and the pain in both Brad and Carrie’s vocals throughout the single. The lyrics are well written, and lets you actually picture the memories they are talking about. There’s no way this song doesn’t win at least one of the awards at at least one of the hundreds of country music award shows during the next year.

    “Remind Me” is out on radio now. Carrie and Brad were filming the music video for it last week.

    RATING: 5 out of 5
    POTENTIAL: Number one

    This review is GREAT... though I have to disagree with this...
    While she has had pretty songs in the past with sad themes, she never really could deliver them to make you feel them.
    JAD is one of the songs where she really expressed pain...

    That was exactly what I was thinking - along with I Know You Won't and So Small and Wasted and...I could go on...

    I agree, I love the review other than this part. I think some of her songs like JAD (especially) and So Small and such really showed emotion, but other than that it was a very nice review

    I agree with the statements above - the review was super great except for the comment about showing emotion in her songs - she is great at showing emotions - I can't think of one she didn't deliver on - think its something she has really worked hard at since she left Idol - and has succeeded. But other than that, it was wonderful reading that great review!!
