Brad Paisley featuring Carrie Underwood, "Remind Me"

90 Billboard Rating

When word got out that Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood had recorded a duet for the former's This Is Country Music album, fans began clamoring for the track to become a single. They got their wish when "Remind Me" became the third release from the album, as the gorgeous power ballad about a couple trying to rekindle their romance was serviced to the masses. The hunger to recapture that passion is palpable as the duo sing such lines as "Do you remember the way it felt/You mean back when we couldn't control ourselves/Remind me, remind me." Underwood remains one of the finest female country singers of her generation, and Paisley proves her equal with a stellar performance teeming with emotion and intensity. When two of the format's superstars partner on a song, it's obviously going to be a hit, but even George & Tammy and Conway & Loretta would be proud of these youngsters.
