Brad Paisley’s Duet with Carrie Underwood Was Inspired by Hip-Hop
Brad Paisley doesn't only listen to country music. And it's a good thing. For example, his duet with Carrie Underwood on the song "Remind Me" was inspired by some of his favorite hip-hop artists.
Brad says, quote,
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. And I thought that's an untapped thing that we need to try a little more of in this format... which is an actual duet written to be that, that doesn't work any other way.
