What’s Christmas all about for country music star Brad Paisley and his young family?

He’s a great person to ask. After all, Paisley, who’s married to actress Kimberly Williams-Paisley and has two sons – Huck, age 3, and Jasper, age 1 — titled the first song he wrote, when he was just 12 years old, “Born on Christmas Day”.
