Thanksgiving is a time of reflection, to show gratitude for all that we’ve been given, and it’s no different for country superstars. Their labels share what some of the artists on their rosters are most thankful for this year.
Tim McGraw is grateful for his family. “I’m thankful that I have healthy kids,” he says. “I’m thankful that all my daughters are happy and healthy and lookin’ forward to the future.”
Keith Urban has deep words of appreciation for his wife. “My marriage is just, it’s life-giving, not just life-changing, it’s been life-giving for me. And from there, we created life, and that’s just beautiful, absolutely beautiful. And the effect that all of that has had in my work, has given life to it too, given it a sense of purpose and really deepened the experience for me.”
“I’m thankful for my family and great health,” says Eric Church. “And I’m thankful for from a career standpoint, I’m very thankful for the success we’ve had lately. I’m thankful for what the fans have done. I mean there’s a lot of stuff to be thankful for in that regard. And I’m thankful that I was given the opportunity to do it my own way. I’m thankful that I’m going to get to keep doing this and do it the way that I want to do it.”
Meanwhile, Brian Kelley of Florida Georgia Line says that he and his bandmate Tyler Hubbard try to keep the spirit of Thanksgiving alive year-round. “Giving back is something that’s very important to us,” he says. “We were raised watching both of our fathers work very hard and give back at the same time. That’s something that’s close to us and close to our hearts and our voices through success, and everything has gotten a little bit bigger over the past couple years, and there’s no better time than now, and we’d feel like we’d be doing the wrong thing if we weren’t giving back.”
Darius Rucker has one thing at the top of his mind at Thanksgiving. “I always give thanks for the greatest thing I’ve got and that’s my family.”
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family from everyone at K-Frog!
