Xbox threw a Halloween party in Nashville over the weekend, and everybody came.
Including Brad Paisley and Kimberly Williams-Paisley, who hosted the event and invited all their country friends. Like Joe Don Rooney, John Rich, Little Big Town, Logan Mize, Maddie Marlow, Mat Kearney, Natalie Stovall, Rodney Atkins, The Swon Brothers and more.
“I think what’s great about this,” Paisley said of the great turnout, “is you didn’t realize that a bunch of hillbillies in Tennessee are gamers like this.
“I know I am. But everybody knows I’m a nerd,” he told Xbox.
While the guests mixed and mingled and gamed — stations were set up so everyone could play Minecraft, Just Dance 2018, Super Lucky’s Tale, Zoo Tycoon, Madden NFL 18, NHL 18, Forza Motorsport 7 and more — Paisley talked about his open-minded feelings on gaming.
“In some ways, gaming — if you’re not super obsessive,” he said, “it’s the new catch.”
