Today's country tidbits...

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you are surrounded by family and friends today, that you have plenty to eat, that you have shelter and that you have love.

If you are working today, thank you for providing the services that your town needs to be safe. Police officers, fire fighters, hospital and emergency workers, convenience store clerks, gas station attendants, radio and tv station employees and members of the military all provide vital services 24/7/365, and I am thankful for you and grateful to you.

Country music artists are very grateful to have the best fans in the world, and they show it in many ways. Most will sign autographs until the last person is served. Many host special events for their fans at each stop on their tour. And some are using the internet to bring their fans up close and personal. If you particularly like a singer or group, look them up on YouTube. Chances are, you'll find sneak peeks behind the scenes, like this one from Lady Antebellum. In it, they give their fans a sneak-peek of the music on their upcoming cd, "Need You Now."

Jamey Johnson and Randy Houser are taking today off after playing Huntsville, AL last night. They'll stuff their faces, then it's on to Tupelo, Mississippi tomorrow.

Kudos to Tracy Lawrence and friends, who fried up nearly 500 turkeys and raised ten grand for the Nashville Rescue Mission. Mission: Possible on Tuesday was a huge success.

Don't forget to catch Reba and Billy Currington during the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade today.
