Remember this duet from Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley...?
Well... it turns out, it might have been someone else's song first!
Brad and Carrie are being sued by Amy Bowen, a country singer/songwriter who performs under the name Lizzie Conner. She says she wrote the song back in 2007, and performed it at a few singer/songwriter workshops in Nashville.

The two songwriters, John Kelley Lovelace and Charles Christopher Dubois, who "wrote" the song for Brad and Carrie and are given credit for it on the album, attended at least one of the workshops where Lizze performed. According to her, Charles Dubois even suggested she make it a duet!
Lizzie is seeking $10 million in damages and wants to be named the song's owner. Compare the lyrics:
All it takes is your kiss to remind me
All I need is your touch to remind me
Take me to the place we started from
When love was young
Baby, remind me
The first chorus in the Paisley/Underwood song:
Been so long, bet you forget
The way I used to kiss your neck
Remind me, remind me
So on fire, so in love
Way back when we couldn't get enough
Remind me, remind me.
