Brad Paisley Headlining Disco Party for Alzheimer’s Association
Brad Paisley is getting ready to boogie: The country star will play an upcoming disco party in Nashville, to benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.
The disco fundraiser, scheduled to take place on June 4 at the Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, is being put together by the nationally syndicated radio program The Blair Garner Show and Paisley’s wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley. The actress was inspired to “help raise more awareness and funds for research” for Alzheimer’s and dementia following the death of her mother, Linda Payne Williams, in November, after a long battle with dementia.
“The Alzheimer’s cause is important to our family,” Williams tells All Access. “What better way to [raise money and awareness] than to harness the amazing talent here in Nashville.”
In addition to Paisley, Wildhorse’s house band, the Retrospecs, will be “showing their funky side” during the disco party, along with additional artists who have yet to be announced.
“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,” Williams-Paisley adds.
Fans looking for a way into the disco event can win their way in by donating $10 to the Alzheimer’s Association. Every $10 donation equals 100 entries into a contest to attend the party as Paisley and Williams-Paisley’s special guests; the prize package includes VIP access at the event, a meet and greet with the Paisleys, flights to and from Nashville and two nights of accommodations.

Besides getting ready to take the stage at this upcoming disco party (in, no doubt, a hilarious costume), Paisley has been busy putting together a new project: His new album, Love and War, is set for release this Friday (April 21). The record will feature multiple collaborations, including songs with Mick Jagger, Timbaland, John Fogerty and Bill Anderson; the song “Gold All Over the Ground” also features Johnny Cash as a co-writer.
