The video for Brad Paisley’s current single, “Remind Me,” a duet with Carrie Underwood, was released earlier this week. The video will debut on GAC Turbo Track on Saturday, July 30 and CMT’s Hot Shot on Monday, August 1.

The video is directed by award winning directors Robert Deaton and George Flanigen and produced by Mark Kalbfeld. “Remind Me” is the third single from Paisley’s current album, This Is Country Music, and has sky-rocketed up the charts to No. 9 on both the Billboard Country Singles Chart and Mediabase Country Singles Chart.

The video was filmed in the El Mirage desert, about 90 miles north east of Los Angeles. The day was hot, dry and windy – even a sand cyclone appeared.

“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!”
