Brad Paisley College Gameday guest picker

Believe it, college football fans - the 2015 season starts in just three days. That also means that Saturday morning, College GameDay will be back on our television screens. ESPN's famed college football preview show will be broadcasting from Fort Worth, Texas, ahead of the Alabama vs. Wisconsin matchup. Monday, it was announced which celebrity would be joining the crew to make some predictions for the week.

Country music star Brad Paisley will be doing some double duty for the event. He'll be performing his new single "Country Nation" for the crowd and serving as the official celebrity guest picker.

Paisley and Sam Ponder had an interesting Twitter conversation regarding the event, too. But no, she didn't really convince him via social media. ESPN had already made the announcement via press release.

Paisley served as the guest picker for last year's West Virginia vs. TCU contest. What do you think, college football fans? Is he the right choice to kick things off?
