Paisley reminds fans of new video
Friday, July 29, 2011
– The video for Brad Paisley's current single, Remind Me,
a duet with Carrie Underwood, can be viewed now on bradpaisley.com, carrieunderwoodofficial.com and cmt.com.
The video will debut on GAC Turbo Track on Saturday, July 30 and CMT's Hot Shot on Monday, Aug. 1. The video was directed by directors Robert Deaton and George Flanigen and produced by Mark Kalbfeld. The song is the third single from Paisley's current album, "This Is Country Music."
The video was filmed in the El Mirage desert, about 90 miles north east of Los Angeles. The day was hot, dry and windy. "This is my first desert video - I always said I wouldn't do one of those cliché desert videos but Robert (Deaton) pitched his idea and it all made sense," says Paisley. "It's a big metaphor. Carrie and I are in a desert walking towards one another. It's as symbolic as it gets in reference to the song."
"It was important to us that the video be shot with a sophisticated approach," added Underwood. "The song and recording came together in such a wonderful, natural way. We wanted the video to also be something we could be proud of...and we are."

Brad Paisley's new live hits CD is a bit of a tease. That's because it only goes half way in replicating the true live Paisley experience. Watching the accompanying concert videos at a Paisley show, whether the venue screen is showing Andy Griffith during Waitin' on a Woman or the montage of recently-deceased celebrities that accompanies When I Get Where I'm Going, reveal how Paisley simply must be seen to be fully enjoyed.
Nevertheless, Paisley in concert and captured on ...
Brad Paisley has grown up on his eighth album. Yes, the West Virginian maintains a sense of humor, but apparently aging has left its mark on a maturing singer who has never forsaken his country roots. That is ever so apparent in songs like Anything Like Me and Oh Yeah, You're Gone. The former finds Paisley looking at the passage of time through his son's life in a tender, but not sappy look. On the latter, he's a five-year-old boy who doesn't get what he wants, which his grandfather notices. ...
