As the Halloween season is upon us, many of the Warner Music Nashville artists have shared some of their past experiences and favorite memories of the holiday.
Hunter Hayes told a story about one year, despite his dislike of Halloween candy, he really got in the Halloween spirit. "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!" said Hayes. "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."
Jana Kramer described her favorite Halloween as the one when she dressed up as Sport Spice. "It was hilarious because all of my girlfriends dressed up as the other Spice Girls. We had a blast!" said Kramer.
Members of the group The Farm, each have different memories of their personal Halloweens growing up. Nick Hoffman notes that his favorite costume was the Karate Kid and Damien Horne describes a Halloween when he dressed as Dracula but was mistaken as trying to be a drag queen. Krista Marie talks about her Halloween experiences a little differently. "I had more fun giving out the candy," said Marie "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."
Lastly, Brett Eldredge talks about a Halloween when he envied his brother's costume over the Mickey Mouse costume he was given to wear. "I thought to myself, this is so unfair that my brother gets to be a dinosaur and I'm stuck with Mickey Mouse!" said Eldredge. "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!"
