Music City Minute: Thanksgiving Celebrations! 

Kelsea Ballerini did "Us" magazine's "25 Things You Don't Know About Me", and her most embarrassing moment was eighth-grade picture day when her skirt was tucked into her underwear for an entire class change. Here are a few more:

"Writing songs and being in sweatpants makes me feel the happiest.

"Frank Sinatra has been the soundtrack to some of my life's best moments. If I could meet anyone dead or alive, it would be him."

"I'd never be caught dead wearing Birkenstocks."

“I don't wash my hair every day. It's better to only wash it a few times a week."

"My biggest phobias are spiders, fires, and dolls."

"I'd love to duet with Macklemore. Country and rap . . . why not?"

"My most embarrassing moment was eighth-grade picture day. My skirt was tucked into my underwear for an entire class change."

"I work out with Carrie Underwood'strainer to try to get her fantastic legs."


Sam Hunt’s Thanksgiving dinner is always turkey, dressing, dessert… and milk. He says, "Since I was young, I've always loved drinking milk, my brothers too, we drank lots of milk. My cousins who grew up down the road always looked at us funny when we wanted to drink milk with our Thanksgiving meal."


Chris Young says that he really gets into sports. So, he'll be sure to watch the traditional football games on Thanksgiving Day and says, "I have more than one TV. I can't just watch one. I mean, I'm probably one of the more dedicated, even if it's not my team. Like, if they had a national dice-throwing championship, I would know who was good and what their stats were so, I'll definitely be watching both of those games on Thanksgiving."


Keith Urban’s mother is coming in from Australia this week to spend Thanksgiving with his family - shares his very first Thanksgiving holiday in America: "The first Thanksgiving I ever had here, which was 25 years ago, 'cause I've been here a long time now. But the first one I ever had, I remember going to this family's home, they invited me to Thanksgiving, and I couldn't believe the volume of food. It was insane. I've never seen so much food in my life. Then after the food, there was like 12 desserts. I was like, 'Why are there so many desserts?' They said, 'Well, because every Aunt and every Grandma, everybody brought their thing, their special dessert, and you have to try every one of 'em.' I'm like, 'There's like THREE apple cobblers.' And they're like, 'Yeah, but they're made by different people and they're all watching, so you have to make sure you try everything up there.”


Eating turkey isn't the only Thanksgiving tradition Aaron Watson partakes in each year; he always watches his Dallas Cowboys play: "You know, I'm totally brainwashed by my dad to be a Cowboys fan. I never had even a choice. It just, it is what it is. But, you know, Dallas is a few hours away from where we live, so we already have some really good memories, you know, with my dad and my two boys - Jake and Jack. And even my wife Kimberly and [daughter] Jolie Kate go to some games with us. But, yeah, we're pretty big Cowboy fans, so we think they have a bright future ahead of us." 


When it comes to the Thanksgiving feast, Justin Moore is in charge of turkey in his family, he fries them, but he says that’s his only job. He says. "On Thanksgiving the last three or four years for our family, I've fried a couple of turkeys. So that's kind of our tradition now and that's my contribution. I don't make dressing because my mom and some of the other folks in our family do it better than I do. My mom and dad usually make that. My father-in-law makes the best sweet potato casserole I've ever eaten, so I'll leave that to him. But I do fry the turkeys."
