Brad Paisley has written a song in response to a lawsuit claiming he ripped off the idea for his song "Remind Me," a duet with Carrie Underwood.
In the song "High Life", to be included on his upcoming album, "Moonshine In The Trunk," Brad sings, “I heard a song a couple months ago,” Paisley sings, “It was Carrie Underwood on the radio. It reminded me of a poem my brother wrote back in second grade. I know she didn’t steal it, but so what? We lawyered up and sued her butt. These days we figure we pretty much get paid to go away.”
Carrie's unmistakable voice joins the chorus about “a bunch of lowlifes living the high life.”
It appears to take aim at singer-songwriter Amy Bowen, who filed a $10 million lawsuit in 2013 claiming "Remind Me" was stolen from her. Paisley’s "Moonshine in the Trunk" album will be released on Aug. 26, but the singer has been leaking tracks online for the past couple of weeks.
