Country Music Superstar Brad Paisley to Serve as College GameDay Guest Pic
ESPN’s College GameDay Built by the Home Depot will get a visit from country music superstar Brad Paisley on Saturday, Nov. 1, when he stops by the GameDay set in Morgantown, W.Va., on the campus of West Virginia University. Paisley will join hostChris Fowler and analysts Lee Corso, Kirk Herbstreit and Desmond Howard for their winning picks segment leading into the weekend’s biggest college football games. The weekly three-hour Emmy Award-winning show (Saturday 9 a.m. – noon ET) will set up on the patio of the Mountainlair Student Union for just its second visit to Morgantown. Then, at 3:30 p.m., ABC will televise the Mountaineers’ game against TCU.
Lee Fitting, ESPN senior coordinating producer, said, “Anytime we can get a star of Brad Paisley’s stature on the show it is a huge win. On top of that, Brad is a West Virginia native and huge Mountaineers fan. GameDay’s been on a great run this season with celebrity guest pickers and Saturday morning in Morgantown with Brad on our set should be very entertaining.”
