NEW YORK and NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct 16, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Magisto, the automatic video editing app, has teamed up with country music superstar and 14-time CMA Award winner Brad Paisley in a partnership that pairs powerful smart editing and video production technology with musical artistry to yield a new way for artists to connect with their fans. Brad's latest song, "I Can't Change the World," will be featured as a musical selection in Magisto's brand new "Country" editing theme. In this heartfelt ballad, Brad sings, "I can't change the world / Baby, that's for sure / But if you let me, girl / I can change yours." Using this message as the music bed, Magisto and Paisley are encouraging fans to apply Magisto's creation tools to make a music video to celebrate someone they know who has changed their world.

Here they will find Paisley's new song "I Can't Change the World" to use as the soundtrack for their video. All they have to do to then is click the create button, wait for five to seven minutes and their personal music video is ready for viewing on Magisto and sharing via email, SMS, Twitter, Facebook and Google+.
Magisto has created a special "I Can't Change the World" video album for Paisley fans where they can share their personally created music videos and their love of his music. The "I Can't Change the World" video album is part of Magisto's recently launched "Open Albums" which introduces a new form of personal video networking that lets users celebrate a shared passion via personal movies and collective storytelling.
