Poor Lucie Silvas has been so sick the last few weeks. Although she had to cancel the last two shows of her U.K. tour, she made it back to the States safely to join her hubby, John Osborne of Brothers Osborne, who is clearly doing a great job preparing their turkey …

A few other stars posted their Thanksgiving memories too, including Luke Bryan and Lady Antebellum’s Charles Kelley.

We hope everyone had a Happy Thanksgiving! We’re thankful for all of you!
