Party Like It’s 1970 With Brad Paisley, Kimberly Williams-Paisley and “The Blair Garner Show”

Brad Paisley and his wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley, are teaming up with The Blair Garner Show to host the first-ever Disco Party to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association. The event will take place at Nashville’s Wildhorse Saloon on Sunday, June 4.

The cause is near and dear to the Paisley family, as Kimberly’s mother suffered from dementia. Kimberly, who is a spokesperson for the Alzheimer’s Association, is hoping to bring awareness in the fight to end the debilitating disease.

“The Alzheimer’s cause is important to our family,” said Kimberly Williams-Paisley. “After we lost my mom to this devastating disease earlier this year, we wanted to help raise more awareness and funds for research. What better way to do that than to harness the amazing talent here in Nashville. In addition to Brad’s performance, we are looking forward to revealing other artists who will be showing their funky side. It’ll be a one-of-a-kind event that fans and generous supporters of the cause will not be able to experience anywhere else.”

Brad and Kimberly are calling on some of country’s top artists—to be announced soon—to join them onstage to get down and perform a few disco hits from the 1970s and 1980s.

For your chance to be a personal guest of Brad and Kimberly’s at the Disco Party, you can donate $10 to the Alzheimer’s Association to be entered to win VIP access to the event on June 4 at the Wildhorse Saloon, a meet and greet with Kimberly and Brad and round-trip flights to Nashville with two-nights accommodations for a winner and guest.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
