Can You Duet?
The duet, “Remind Me” from Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood is out today, y’all. It joins the long list of music videos made in the desert, where for some inexplicable reason the singer carries an electric guitar and starts playing. Here, Brad and Carrie walk towards one another in slow motion, Brad looking like some serious cowboy hottie, and Carrie, wearing a billowy dress that sensibly blows away from her long legs, like a reincarnation of Faith Hill in “Breathe.”
OK, so the desert isn’t supposed to be literal — it represents the arid gulf that has separated our two lovers. The video borrows from an artist named Bill Viola whose extreme slow-mo video installations of people walking towards you in the desert are astonishingly beautiful.
Brad and Carrie are returning as CMA hosts, and this is not the first time they have teamed up for a delicious duet. Sometimes musical partnerships take on a life of their own, and The Inky Jukebox is glad this one’s growing.
