Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley performed a surprise duet in Nashville on Sunday night (September 23, 2012). Carrie was so overwhelmed when her fellow country music star Brad appeared onstage alongside that she could be seen wiping a tear from her eye, as they sang their hit duet ‘Remind Me’ in front of the huge crowd at the Bridgestone Arena. The former American Idol singer was watched in the crowd by former contestants David Cook and Lauren Alaina, as well as Kix Brooks and Vince Gill.
The Nashville Arena is fast becoming a familiar haunt for Carrie Underwood. Not only has she headlined the venue three times since 2008 but her husband, Mike Fisher, now plays for Nashville Predators NHL team, making the Bridgestone Arena his team’s home ground. When they walked around the venue earlier on in the day, Mike said to Carrie “you’re on my turf now.” It didn’t take Carrie long to come up with a response and she quickly shot back “I was here first.” She’s got a point, as Mike only joined the Predators last year.
According to a report from the country music radio station WWGP AM1050, during her headline show Sunday night, Underwood was also joined by Hunter Hayes, who had also served as her opening act. Carrie and Hunter performed a duet of ‘Leave Love Alone.’ During his own opening set, Hunter was surprised onstage by staff from his record label, who presented him with a platinum plaque for his hit song ‘Wanted.’
