Food takes center stage on Thanksgiving and like us, country stars have their favorite dishes. For Alan Jackson, he reaches for a family favorite – which also happens to be a family recipe.

“My favorite Thanksgiving dish would be the homemade, cornbread-based kind of dressing that we always have with turkey,” he said. “That recipe is a combination of my mama, and Denise has taken it and perfected it over the years, so that me and my children really enjoy it.”

As for Dierks Bentley, no Thanksgiving meal is complete without turkey. “Thanksgiving is not possible without a turkey,” he said. “My dad’s always been the one to cook and carve it, but in years here recently, I’ve been taking over those duties. Big responsibility.” Continue Reading

It’s a Girl for Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott

Congratulations to new mom Hillary Scott and husband Chris Tyrell, who are the proud parents of a daughter named Eisele!

Lady Antebellum‘s leading lady tweeted the photo above of Eisele’s footprints, saying “She’s here, and we are in HEAVEN!!! Eisele Kaye, our beautiful angel, HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!”

People magazine reported the little Lady was born Monday, July 22 in Nashville. Eisele Kaye Tyrrell weighed 7 lbs. 13 oz. Where’d they get that unique name — and how do you say it? The magazine says it’s a combination of Chris’s mother’s maiden name and the middle name (Kaye) of Hillary’s mom, singer Linda Davis. And it’s pronounced “Eyes-lee.”

“She is incredibly gorgeous,” proud dad Chris says.

This is the first child for the couple, who wed in January 2012 during an intimate ceremony in Upstate New York. See their wedding photo >> Continue Reading

In the wake of the devastating tornado that tore through Moore, Oklahoma Monday afternoon, country stars, many of whom are from Oklahoma, are offering their thoughts and prayers. Toby Keith grew up in the town of Moore and was deeply affected by the storm.

“This storm has devastated the community that I grew up in,” he said. “I rode my bike through those neighborhoods. I have family and friends in Moore. My heart and prayers go to those that have lost so much. But Moore is strong and we will persevere. God be with you all.”

Carrie Underwood, from Checotah, Oklahoma, sent her thoughts and prayers through Twitter. “I’m thinking about and praying for my beautiful home state and the people in it tonight,” she wrote.

Reba, born and raised in McAlester, Oklahoma, also took to Twitter to offer her support. “All my prayers go out to the folks in Oklahoma dealing with these tornados. Stay safe everyone!!!!” she tweeted.

Blake Shelton, a native Oklahoman, and wife Miranda Lambert who now calls Oklahoma home, sent well wishes through Twitter. “Just landed in LA and hearing about all the tornados in Oklahoma right now… Get somewhere safe!!!” Blake tweeted. “Pray. That’s all we can do. Pray for peace for Oklahoma,” Miranda wrote. Continue Reading
