There is no stopping the “Brad Paisley-Carrie Underwood Tandem” as wherever they go, they make people happy. With their quirkiness and talent, Brad and Carrie simply won the hearts of many fans not just in the country but even around the world.
In one of their performances, Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood did justice to two country legends with their brilliant cover of “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man.” Moreover, their version of Conway Twitty and Loretta Lynn’s song surprised the audience. And, they left them hanging on their seats wanting for more. For sure, if Twitty were still alive, he would be very proud of the two, together with his singing partner, Loretta.
As Twitty and Lynn’s version was more of a classic sound, Paisley and Underwood modernized their rendition. True to their sound, both artists gave a new flavor to the all-time favorite country hit.
Note that the superb duet came about when Underwood invited paisley to a Skype session. This performance then brought the two artists together from distant locations to talk about the performance.
After the exchange of jokes and jests, the two stars started singing the classic hit, “Louisiana Woman, Mississippi Man.” True enough, their duet filled the air with an extra dose of fire and sass. And, with every beat and rhythm of the song, they passionately sang the lines:
Hey, Louisiana woman, Mississippi man
We get together every time we can
The Mississippi River can’t keep us apart
There’s too much love in the Mississippi heart
Too much love in this Louisiana heart
Well, I thought I’d been loved but I never had
‘Til I was wrapped in the arms of a Mississippi man
When he holds me close it feels almost
Like another hurricane just ripped the coast
If he can’t come to me I’m gonna go to him
That Mississippi River Lord I’m gonna swim
