On Thanksgiving Day, everyone from average Joes to superstars finds some time in their busy schedules to count their blessings...oh, and eat. Country music's luminaries are no different--and, what's great, many of them are sharing their holidays online with fans.
Some, like Sugarland's Jennifer Nettles, went so far as to detail their Thanksgiving recipes (find Jennifer's here--they sound like they'd work great for Christmas too) and post shots of the finished culinary works of art--that's a mighty nice-looking sweet potato pie Jen is holding!
LeAnn Rimes posted her greetings along with boyfriend Eddie Cibrian from Cowboys Stadium (where they'll be able to enjoy Keith Urban performing at halftime, lucky ducks!).
Most others, however, merely wished fans a happy holiday and gave thanks for their blessings. Here's a rundown of some "turkey tweets" from Nashville's finest. Happy Thanksgiving!
