Of course Jimmy Butler did his Sixers photo shoot to country music

Jimmy Butler is a competitor on the court, but off it, he’s just a regular guy who loves country music. The newest member of the Philadelphia 76ers was even in Luke Bryan’s country music video ‘Light It Up’ in 2017.

So when Butler had his photo shoot Tuesday following an introductory press conference, it was no surprise that country music was playing in the background.

Everyone has their own preferences in terms of music, and Butler is clearly not shy about showing his love for country music. As Serena Winters of NBC Sports Philadelphia revealed, Butler also loves to play dominoes in his free time and still drives a minivan.

With Butler on the Sixers, perhaps he’ll get teammates Ben Simmons and Joel Embiid into some of his favorite country songs.

Butler was officially traded to the Sixers from the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday, along with Justin Patton. Philadelphia gave up Dario Saric, Robert Covington, Jerryd Bayless and a 2022 second-round draft pick. Butler is expected to make his debut with the team on Wednesday when the Sixers play the Orlando Magic on the road.
