• THANKSGIVING 2015: AJ, Bros. O, Clare, Darius, David, Dierks, Easton, Eric, Josh, Kip, Lady A, LBT, Mickey, Sam, Scotty (UPDATED)

    The Thanksgiving holiday tradition traces its origins to a 1621 celebration at Plymouth, in the state that’s now known as Massachusetts. The 1621 Plymouth feast and thanksgiving was prompted by a good harvest. While initially, the Plymouth colony did not have enough food to feed half of the 102 colonists, the Wampanoag Native Americans helped the Pilgrims by providing seeds and teaching them to fish. The practice of holding an annual harvest festival like this did not become a regular affair in New England until the late 1660s. People now celebrate the holiday by giving thanks for their blessings over the past year, as well as feasting on turkey and other festive goodies.

    Thanksgiving Day is Thursday, November 26th, and most people will be enjoying time with their friends and families, including some of your favorite country stars, such as Alan Jackson, Brothers Osborne, Canaan Smith, Clare Dunn, Darius Rucker, David Nail, Dierks Bentley, Easton Corbin, Eric Church, Eric Paslay, Josh Turner, Kip Moore, Lady Antebellum, Little Big Town, Mickey Guyton, Sam Hunt, Scotty McCreery and more. They share their thoughts, memories and favorite Thanksgiving dishes.

    AJ (Thanksgiving) OC: …enjoy it. :19
    “My favorite Thanksgiving dish would be the homemade dressin’ that we, cornbread-based kind of dressin’ that we always have with turkey. That recipe is a kind of 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.”

    Audio / Brothers Osborne’s John Osborne talks about their annual Misfits Thanksgiving dinner.

    Brothers Osborne (misfits Thanksgiving) OC: …going home. :45
    “What we’ve done the past several years is because it’s so hard to go home, we would have what we call the Misfit Thanksgiving dinner, and all the people in Nashville who aren’t able to go home to their families, we would just invite them over to our house and have a big potluck style Thanksgiving dinner. We’ll take like a couple of tables and throw them together and throw some sheets on it just to make it look nice. It’s a very redneck display of like tableware, because all the plates don’t match and the forks and knives don’t match, but we don’t care. People will bring wine, and at the end of the day, we’ll probably have 12-15 people all sitting at dinner together that weren’t able to go home with their families, and just enjoy it with friends. It’s been really fun. Definitely a lot less stress than going home.”

    Clare Dunn (Thanksgiving dish) OC: …like hers. :21
    “I think my favorite Thanksgiving dish [is] my mom makes the best mashed potatoes in the world. I mean, they’re crazy. They’re like garlic and butter and all the good stuff, so that’s probably my favorite Thanksgiving dish. Oh, and she makes great stuffing too, and I’m not a stuffing person, but I like hers.”

    Darius Rucker (favorite part of Thanksgiving) OC: …my family. :17
    “My favorite part of Thanksgiving is easy – it’s food. It’s eating. It’s hanging out with family and getting some great food, ‘cause that’s really what Thanksgiving, Thanksgiving is about giving thanks for all of the great things you’ve got, and I always give thanks for the greatest thing I’ve got and that’s my family.”

     

    Audio / Dierks Bentley, who is thankful for his wife, two daughters and son, talks about his Thanksgiving must-have! It’s an oldie, but a goodie!

    Download

    Dierks Bentley (Thanksgiving must-have) OC: …for Thanksgiving. :34
    “You gotta have a big turkey. Thanksgiving is not possible without a turkey. We cook it traditionally, but when we’re in, a couple of Thanksgivings ago, we were here in Nashville, we did the whole fry the turkey up, and it was great. It just tasted so good; all those juices get locked in there, and I love that too. You really can’t, to me, cook a turkey wrong. I’m gonna eat it any way, and I have over the years. Trust me, I’ve played a lot of county and state fairs, where I’ve seen gigantic turkey legs, you know, I’ve had the flat meat. I’ve done turkey every way you could do it. I’m pretty good any way you want to cook it up, but you’ve got to have a turkey for Thanksgiving.”

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.”

    Josh Turner (fave side dish) OC: …’em myself. [laughs] :24
    “Uh, deviled eggs! [laughs] Where I’m from in South Carolina, I don’t think I’ve tasted a bad deviled egg. It’s like everybody has their own twist on it, but they’re all good, but I always loved it when my mama made ‘em. I’m learning as I get older, making deviled eggs is no easy task. It’s more complicated than it looks, and so that’s probably why I never made ‘em myself.” [laughs]

    Audio / Kip Moore talks about his annual Thanksgiving plans to go home to visit with his family.

    Kip Moore (Thanksgiving) OC: …with them. :11
    “I [usually] go home for Thanksgiving. I love going home to see all them. I have five brothers and sisters and it’s a blast to go home and just catch up on their lives. I get so wrapped up in all this that I lose touch sometimes, and it’s cool to hear everything going on with them.

    Lady A (Charles-Thanksgiving eating contest) OC: …five pounds! :25
    “One of my most memorable Thanksgiving memories was probably the first year that me and my two brothers decided to start our annual eating contest where we ate throughout the whole day. We started that morning and weighed ourselves and at the very end of the night, we weighed ourselves out and all three of us equally gained five pounds. I wish we had a more accurate scale to decide the winner, but we all tied. Five pounds!”

    Audio / Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott describes her favorite Thanksgiving dish.

    Lady A (Hillary-Thanksgiving food) OC: …ever tasted. :12

    “My favorite Thanksgiving dish that has to, has to, has to be at Thanksgiving dinner is dessert. Dessert is my favorite Thanksgiving dish. I mean, it doesn’t matter what it is, as long as it’s sweet. My mom actually makes an Italian cream cake that’s absolutely awesome. It’s homemade, and the entire family, that’s the first thing to go at Thanksgiving dinner. And my Grandma D, she makes a pecan pie that is awesome. She taught me how to make them when I was little, and I just love them, and that’s the other thing that I look forward to at Thanksgiving dinner, and I love them both so much!”

    Audio / Sam Hunt talks about his favorite Thanksgiving meal.

    Download

    Sam Hunt (Thanksgiving eats) OC: …glass of milk. :34
    “When I pile my plate up, it’s mostly turkey and then I’ll put a little dressing on the side, and I’ll usually go ahead and grab my dessert on the first run [laughs] and have it ready before it all disappears. Those are the really the three things. It’s strange, but since I was very young, I’ve always loved drinking milk, my brothers too, we drank lots of milk. My cousins, who grew up down the road, they always looked at us funny when we wanted to drink milk with our Thanksgiving meal. They would have coke or whatever else. So, I still get turkey, dressing, a piece of pecan pie and a big ole glass of milk.”

    Audio / Scotty McCreery talks about what he’s most thankful for this year.

    Scotty McCreery (most thankful) OC: …thankful for her. :28
    “[I’m] most thankful for, I’d probably say my girl back home could be. I don’t talk about her too much, because she strives to stay out of the limelight, but with a guy like me who travels as much as I do and I’m away from home, she puts up with a lot. She’s stuck by me and has been my rock, so she’s something to be thankful for every day and Thanksgiving’s just a reminder of that. Somebody like that really keeps me going in life when things get rough and tough and I get tired on the road, she just keeps me going. I’m really thankful for her.”

    Audio / David Nail says he's most thankful this year for the impending birth of twins.

    David Nail (Thanksgiving 2015) OC: …without a doubt. :19
    “Without a doubt, the thing I’m most thankful for is the fact that we’re on the verge of, my wife and I, having not only our first child, but our first two children. We are expecting twins; should be here any minute now. So, that is definitely thing that I’m most thankful for, without a doubt.”

    Audio / David Nail usually goes back home to Missouri for Thanksgiving, but this year, since his wife Catherine is due to give birth to twins any day now, they’ll stay home in Tennessee.

    David Nail (Thanksgiving 2015) 2 OC: …next year. :25
    “Due to the fact that we’re expecting twins, we will not be able to go back home to Missouri and visit and have Thanksgiving with my grandfather. Last Thanksgiving was the first without my grandmother, and so it was a very emotional time. But I know he understands the situation, and we will definitely be there with bells on next year.”

    Audio / Canaan Smith says his favorite Thanksgiving dish is pumpkin pie.

    Canaan Smith (pumpkin pie) OC: …Thanksgiving. :14
    “Pumpkin pie is where it’s at. My mom makes the best. She got it from her mom, my Nanny. It’s so good. It’s made from scratch. Everything about it, it’s just mouthwatering. I love it. I can’t get enough. If I could get fat, it’d be from pumpkin pie at Thanksgiving.”

  • CLARE DUNN HAS A NEW ADDITION TO HER ROAD CREW.

    Clare Dunn has added to her crew on the road. She rescued a pit bull and named her Jenny. Since she’s been in Nashville, she hasn’t been able to have a dog since she’s been on the road in a van. However, when she got her first bus recently, she was able to bring her new puppy on the road.

    “I just rescued a pit bill from an animal sanctuary in Lamar, Colorado. It’s an organization called LAST, L-A-S-T. It’s the Lamar Animal Sanctuary Team, and her name is Jenny, and she was in a kill shelter, and then the LAST organization came and adopted her,” says Clare. “My mom was, I think, donating or something to the organization and she came across Jenny. I haven’t been able to have a dog since I moved to Nashville ‘cause I’m gone. But now that I’ve gotten into a bus, which is huge, I can now have a dog with me. And so, my mom adopted Jenny for me, brought her home to the farm, I got to meet her over the Fourth of July when I was home, and then now she’s out with me and going on the road and just getting to be a spoiled little puppy dog, you know, and a great pal and companion for me.”

    Clare, who was recently on the road with Miranda Lambert, is currently making her way up the country charts with her single, “Move On.”

    (as soon as we have a photo, we’ll post it to ooh and aah over.)

  • CLARE DUNN RELEASES HER SELF-TITLED DEBUT EP THIS WEEK.

    Clare Dunn releases her self-titled debut EP on Friday (September 18th) to all digital retailers. The guitar slinger co-wrote and co-produced all five songs on the collection, AND she played lead guitar on each track, including her single “Move On.”

    She didn’t start playing guitar until she moved to Nashville and found she needed to learn how to play if she was going to record songs the way she already had them mapped out in her head.

    “I started playing guitar out of necessity to get my sound out of my head. I realized when I came to town that when I was in the studio working with musicians, and especially guitar players, I always heard things a certain way, and I obviously lacked the vocabulary to express that,” says the Colorado native. “Through many failed attempts of trying to explain how I heard tones and effects and guitar licks and melodies, it dawned on me that, hey, I can’t explain this, then I’m probably gonna have to try it. I need to go ahead and see if it’s something I can do. So, I did. I started working at it.”

    Clare Dunn EP Track List:

    1. “Ferrari”
      2. ”Move On”
      3. “Tuxedo”
      4. “Old Hat”
      5. “Cowboy Side of You”

    Audio / Clare Dunn started playing guitar when she was in college just a couple of years ago out of necessity.

I need to go ahead and see if it’s something I can do. So, I did. I started working at it. I took some lessons in the beginning. I think being a singer obviously helped me play, because I could hear things and just had to find it on the guitar.”

    Audio / Clare Dunn discovered her love of music while working on her family farm in Colorado.

    Download

    Clare Dunn (discovered music) OC: …that way. :40
    “I did most of my music discovery as a young girl driving a tractor for most of the day – 10, 12 hours a day, you have nothing but the radio as your companion, basically, to keep you entertained. So, there was a local country radio station, and they, along with my parents’ love of music, I mean, that’s how I found Keith Urban and George Strait. My mom is a huge Waylon Jennings’ fan. And so music for me, I discovered it driving long hours on a tractor or hauling water to a cattle in a pickup by myself or through my parents’ love of music. And so, I was really fortunate that way.”

  • CLARE DUNN ANNOUNCES HEARTLAND TOUR TO ASSIST FARMING COMMUNITIES.

    image002

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. (August 21, 2015) – Clare Dunn announces her inaugural Heartland Tour, an initiative to benefit and highlight small farming communities. Raised on a farm in Southeast Colorado with a population of approximately 30, Clare hopes to shine a light on deserving communities similar to her own. Clare established the Heartland Tour as an annual event providing exposure to a select number of struggling farming communities in the Heartland of America.

    The debut Heartland Tour will be held near Clare’s hometown of Two Buttes, where her family still resides, on September 19 at The Sand and Sage Rodeo Pavilion in Lamar, CO. Tickets are available now for $15 and can be purchased here:http://claredunn.com/heartland-tour/. All net proceeds go directly back into the surrounding farming communities.

    “I couldn’t be more excited to go back to Colorado and perform for the deserving farm communities near my hometown” says Clare. “My farming upbringing has been integral in shaping who I am as an artist and I am passionate on giving back to the great, hard-working people that make up these communities.”

    The Heartland Tour is the first initiative of Clare’s “My Love Gives Back Fund” of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee (CFMT) and will be produced by Big Hearted Babes. The “My Love Gives Back Fund” will focus on Clare’s many philanthropic interests including farming families and communities.

    Clare’s debut single “Move On” continues to climb the country airplay charts and will be featured on her self-titled EP out September 18. Fans can catch the singer/songwriter this fall as part of Miranda Lambert’s Roadside Bars and Pink Guitars Tour as well as Chris Young’s I’m Comin’ Over Tour.

Included on the EP is Clare’s major label radio debut, “Move On,” which country star Dierks Bentley calls out as a “bad ass song” with a “totally unique vibe.”

    Clare co-wrote and co-produced all five songs on her EP, presenting a gratifying blend of country and rock. NPR asserts the “Colorado-raised country newcomer is a little bit Florence, a little bit Bonnie and a whole lot rock and roll.” This magnetic rising star also plays lead guitar on every track both in the studio and in her impressive live show. Clare is a fearless performer and guitar player, drawing numerous comparisons to Bonnie Raitt and Keith Urban while recently out on tour with American rock icon Bob Seger. The Boston Globe commends Clare’s “big voice and serious guitar prowess,” while Rolling Stonenotes, “it’s easy to see why Seger himself recruited her [Clare] to open for him on his last tour.”

    In addition to earning praise from Billboard, NPR, Rolling Stone, The Boston Globe, USA Today and more, Clare has been tapped to join Miranda Lambert on the Roadside Bars & Pink Guitars Tour as well as Chris Young on the I’m Comin’ Over Tour this fall.

    Clare Dunn (recording studio) OC: …whatever. :51
    “That thrill and that moment, that realization that ‘Oh my God, this is real. I really get to do this.’ I dreamed for so long of actually getting to go and work in my own studio and be able to have place that I could call my own. I’m not having to worry about being kicked of, like am I sneaking in here in somebody else’s session? It was my space and my little world. It was my piece of the world that I got to just do whatever I wanted, and that freedom of that was something that I never experienced and so I just soaked it up. I tried to get them to let me bring a couch in there so I could sleep. And they were like “Ehh well, you’re going to need a shower. We don’t want you running around here smelling up the place and whatever.’”
