Cole Swindell Says Performing on Macy's Thanksgiving Day ...

Wednesday, 6:00 PM

Image Courtesy Warner Music NashvilleCole Swindell usually heads back home to Georgia for Thanksgiving, but he's making an exception this year to sing at the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade in New York City. Cole grew up watching the parade every year, and he's having trouble processing that he'll actually be a part of the event on Thursday.

He says, "That doesn’t even seem real. Especially from, you know, the folks where we're from, we've all watched that. Even New York is bigger than we've ever imagined."

Cole expects he'll be getting a lot of texts and phone calls from friends and family back home that day.

"My family's gonna be gathered around and waching," Cole says. "It's gonna be fun."

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade airs Thursday morning on NBC. Dan + Shay will perform during the parade, too.

Lady Antebellum's Dave Haywood Navigates the Family Polit...

Wednesday, 2:00 PM

Image Courtesy Capitol NashvilleLady Antebellum's Dave Haywood and wife, Kelli, will be spending their first Thanksgiving with their baby boy, Cash, this week. Of course, everyone else in Dave and Kelli's family wants to see Cash on Thanksgiving, too. Dave isn't getting into the what he jokingly calls the "dirty politics" of visiting his family over Kelli's family this holiday season though.

He says, "I think for the holidays this year, it's just gonna be about, 'What's the most amount of family we can get him around.' Everybody wants to see him."

Dave and Kelli have come up with a great solution to give Cash the most family time possible on Turkey Day.

"I think we're gonna, obviously, entertain everybody coming to Nashville and being with us probably more than us traveling too much during the holidays," Dave says.
