Brad Paisley to Perform Disco Hits at Alzheimer’s Association Benefit
This June, Brad Paisley will shake his groove thing at a disco party aimed at raising awareness and funds to battle Alzheimer’s disease.
The inaugural event, to be held on June 4 at Wildhorse Saloon in Nashville, is being launched by the Blair Garner Show and Paisley’s wife, Kimberly Williams-Paisley. Simply named Disco Party, the night out will feature country superstar Paisley and other top country artists performing disco hits from the ’70s and ’80s. Proceeds will benefit the Alzheimer’s Association.
"The Alzheimer's cause is important to our family,” Williams-Paisley says in a press release. “After we lost my mom to this devastating disease, 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."
Linda Payne Williams died November 16, 2016 after a lengthy dementia battle. She was 73 years old. Though Paisley is currently the only country star announced for the benefit, Williams-Paisley assures more are to follow.
“In addition to Brad's performance, we are looking forward to revealing other artists who will be showing their funky side,” she continues. “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.”
Fans can donate to the Alzheimer's Association at prizeo.com/DiscoParty with each $10 donation entering for a chance to win airfare, hotel accommodations and VIP tickets to the Disco Party for the winner and a guest. Fans can also win a chance to attend the event as personal guests of the Paisleys. Donations to enter may be made until 6:59PM ET on May 16.
General admission tickets for the event run $40-$100 and are available via Ticketmaster.
