Carrie Underwood and Adele?

Adele

Imagine the possibilities…

Adele standing in one of her black dresses next to Carrie Underwood, each holding their microphone in a way that says: it’s just us and our music, giving out the best we can.

And then imagine those two voices fusing together on a song. Are you tearing up yet? You should be.

As my good friend Elia said yesterday, when two girls are singing a duet, it’s more of a sing off. Each one wants to top the other vocally. Now imagine a sing off between Carrie Underwood and Adele, this generation’s strongest vocalists by far. Yes, no one can even come close. Make that sing off friendly, playful and empowering and the result is something that, even while still in theory, is eargasm inducing.

And the fact of the matter is, it just might be a possibility that these two great voices will merge on Carrie’s fourth album. The clues are rather weak at this point but hints do exist.

They’ve both been complimenting each other a lot in the media lately with Carrie calling Adele one of the people she loves listening to and the same with Adele.

If anything, experience has taught us that whenever two artists start to “flirt” in the media, that means they’re cooking up something. In this case, one would hope this theory applies because there would be nothing better in the world than hearing those two vocal powerhouses hitting every single note on a brilliant song.

And if you think having them sing a duet is too greedy, I can settle for one of them writing a song while the other sings it. Any Adele – Carrie Underwood combination in today’s music climate is sure to deliver a song of epic proportions.

No, I’m not hyping this. It’s still a rumor more in the realms of theory. But hopefully someone out there listens and becomes some sort of catalyst in bringing these two together.

In the meantime, I leave you with live performances by each artist, just so you see the magnitude of talent we’re dealing with.

The Carrie Underwood Authenticness

I was browsing the web when I came across this article, posted by the LA Times.

The article wonders (if you don’t feel like reading it) if Taylor Swift will finally beat Carrie Underwood at this year’s ACM awards.

The thing that bothered me the most about the article was its title:

Can Taylor Swift finally beat Carrie Underwood at the Academy of Country Music Awards?

Why would a reputable publication decide to name one of its few articles about this award show this way? Not only does it show some juvenile attitude towards the matter but it’s also uncalled for and shows some ignorance regarding this award show.

Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood are competing against each other in one category, female vocalist of the year, but anyone would tell you that they’re both longshots to win, amidst what is expected to be a Miranda Lambert sweep.

The ACMs air in a few hours. Taylor Swift, with the help of her fans, has unleashed a massive twitter campaign to help her win the fan-voted portion of the coveted Entertainer Of The Year title. And if that wasn’t enough, she also has a camera up for grabs to those who vote for her. Also, people who have been to her concerts in international countries have found pamphlets on their seats inviting them to vote for her.

Brad Paisley, on the other hand, is offering a free iPod and a free download to those who vote for him and invite others to do so.

Carrie Underwood has never done that. She has won Entertainer of the Year twice in a row at the ACMs, the only country female singer ever to win it twice (let alone in a row), and she has never asked her fans to vote for her via a massive-online campaign or by giving out free downloads and goodies.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley’s Duet – Remind Me (Info)

This is what we know so far regarding the Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley duet.

- It will be the upcoming single off Brad Paisley’s album.

- Will be available around Memorial Day (around May 30th)

- It is about a couple rekindling their romance

- It was written by Brad. He felt it was missing something, so he delayed his album to get Carrie on board.

- Those who have heard it are saying it’ll be huge.

- It is a power ballad with a huge ending.

- According to Brian Mansfield, “if your average power ballad was a kiss, this one would slip you a little tongue”

- The lyrics to the chorus are as follows:

Do you remember how it used to be,

We’d turn out the lights and we didn’t just sleep

Remind me, baby, remind me

So on fire, so in love

That look in your eyes that I miss so much

Remind me, baby, remind me.

Is it just me or are those lyrics amazing and hot?

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley’s Duet is Titled: Remind Me!

Here we go, everyone!

The title for Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley’s duet has been revealed:

This is the ASCAP result for the song, click here.

Do you think this will be Brad’s upcoming single? These are the reasons why it might: here.

Carrie Underwood Fans Should Vote For Brad Paisley For Entertainer Of The Year

Starting March 11th, voting will open for this year’s ACM Entertainer Of The Year category. It seems as if our attempt to get our disdain across has gone unnoticed – as expected.

Regardless of Carrie’s clear snub (check here and here), we, as one of country’s biggest fanbases, need to  support one of the nominees and cast our votes in his or her favor. While we all won’t have the same enthusiasm in voting for that nominee as we have for Carrie (new emails, many computers, emailing people who might be interested), we should at least cast one ballot for one of the nominees to get him or her on top and let him win.

Who that nominee should be is Brad Paisley, for a multitude of reasons.

First, Brad is probably Carrie’s closest friend on the nominee list. She was his opening act for one of his tours and he was so impressed by her that he asked her to sing an awesome duet with him: Oh Love. I’m sure as well that Carrie wants Brad to win over the other five nominees, even though she won’t publicly admit it. Just look at how happy she was for him when he won this year’s Entertainer Of The Year at the CMAs, even though she should have been nominated and win.

Second, Brad is country’s leading male vocalist. He has the longest standing number one streak among all country artists and his songs always resonate with the public. Always. His latest single “This Is Country Music” is racing up to the top of the charts in country music.

Third, Brad has confirmed that he has went to the studio with Carrie to record a song that he felt was unfinished prior to her touch. This is how much Brad Paisley thinks of Carrie. Also, this duet might be his next single: check here.

Fourth, while the other nominees are also deserving, none of them has worked as hard as Brad Paisley to get this award. We, Carrie’s fans, have known firsthand how horrible it is when Carrie works really hard for something and gets snubbed. Brad has been shut out from winning the Entertainer Of The Year category too many times. This is his best chance to win. Why not help him out?

Fifth, Brad’s four year old son has a crush on Carrie. Enough said, right?

Also, in case Brad releases the duet as his upcoming single, a win would boost the hype for this single even higher – if that is possible – benefiting both Brad and Carrie for their upcoming albums.

So for all these reasons, we need to cast our votes on March 11th for Brad Paisley, hopefully next year will be Carrie’s year again.

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley Duet: His New Single?

Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley are best buddies in the country music scene.

She was his opening act while promoting her debut album “Some Hearts” and they ended up recording a duet “Oh Love”, an awesome song that was never released. A huge missed opportunity, may I add.

Now, it looks like they have recorded another duet together. And I believe it will be the upcoming single of Brad Paisley’s upcoming album “This Is Country Music”.

First, Carrie’s latest single, Mama’s Song has peaked about a month ago at #2 and it has been rumored that she will not be releasing anymore singles from Play On. The rumor was questioned at first, but the longer we go without a single on the radio, the lesser the chance of continuing the Play On era.

Second, if no Carrie single is released from now till August or September, assuming a predicted November release date for her fourth album, it will be the longest period that Carrie has gone through without an active single on the radio. Far too long if you ask me.

Third, Brad Paisley’s current single “This is Country Music” is racing up the country charts and looks poised to peak at #1 in the coming two or three weeks. It currently sits at #3 on the charts, with a remarkably fast 13-week run, one of the fastest Brad Paisley singles to do so.

Fourth, Brad Paisley’s album is to be released late May, which means that if the current single peaks around early March, it would leave a two month period of no single on the radio to promote his album. A second single being issued is a certainty.

Fifth, Brad Paisley will be competing with Lady Gaga on his first week of release and while he will not beat her, releasing a second single that sparks wide interest among country listeners is sure to provide him with high sales numbers.

Sixth, with the huge success duets and group singles are seeing on country radio (Need You Now, Don’t You Wanna Stay, If I Die Young), it looks like the trend of having more than one singer on a track is paying off. Now get together the genre’s leading vocalists and put them on the same track and you have the recipe for a smash hit on country radio, one that will sustain Carrie through the wait for her fourth album and one that will provide Brad with the needed buzz for his album release.

Also, another thing to note is that with Carrie not having any single on the radio, she will not be able to sing anything at the ACMs and I doubt Brad would want to sing “This Is Country Music” there after debuting it at the CMAs and after it would undoubtedly have peaked.

So it looks like Carrie’s team has prepared a bombshell for us with an awesome single that will undoubtedly take the Country Music scene by storm. One can only hope the song is as awesome as we all think it will be.
