CHARLESTON, W.Va. — ESPN College GameDay announced Thursday afternoon West Virginia native and country music superstar Brad Paisley would be the ‘guest picker’ during GameDay’s show in Morgantown Saturday morning.
GameDay Host Chris Fowler tweeted, “Hello West Virginia! Good memories here thru the years. @CollegeGameDay honored to have native @BradPaisley join as guest picker!”
The official College GameDay Twitter account followed, “This week’s guest picker is @BradPaisley! #GetUp4GameDay”
Paisley, a Glen Dale native, grew up on Mountaineer football and remains a huge fan today. Paisley once walked on stage at the CMA awards with a guitar sporting a “Flying WV.”
GameDay’s guest picker comes on set the last few minutes of the show and makes predictions on the the top college football games of the day. WVU basketball coach Bob Huggins was guest picker during GameDay’s last visit in 2011.
