I always enjoy getting a ‘fun’ press release. And with Halloween just around the corner – of course a fun release was in order. This one included a few of our Warner Music Nashville recording artists taking a minute to reflect on Halloweens gone by:
I did dress up quite a bit when I was a kid for Halloween. I wasn’t really a candy kid, I’m just weird like that, but one year I dressed up as a skeleton, black suit… and all you could see was just the bones, right? I went around and trick or treated, but when I got home I laid down like I was dead, like I was some kind of mannequin or something and then as the kids would come closer I’d jump up and scare the daylights out of them. It was the best! I like surprising people but I never knew it until that moment, I just got to scare them and it was fun. I try for more pleasant surprises these days.
Nick: I was the Karate Kid one year for Halloween.
Damien: The Karate Kid?! Ralph Macchio!
Nick: Yeah, my mom made the costume herself and it was still my favorite Halloween.
Damien: Those are always the fun ones. My mom made me Dracula for Halloween with lipstick running down… it was horrible.
Nick: What’s up with that?
Damien: All the kids thought I was a drag queen. It was horrible.
Krista: I had more fun giving out the candy. I was a decorating queen and loved to go all out with the lights and the cobwebs and this and that. So I was usually at home, but my favorite costume was a sumo wrestler. I was a sumo wrestler. Yes, I was huge. I looked like I was 300 pounds.
Brett Eldredge was Mickey Mouse one year and upon reflection says:
I thought to myself, this is so unfair that my brother gets to be a dinosaur and I’m stuck with Mickey Mouse!? I mean, dinosaurs could eat a mouse in a bow tie in a matter of seconds! Dangit, mom! I’m still not letting it go…
Halloween is almost here — dress up, and make a memory!
Catch you later!
