Every year around this time, families flock to each other’s houses to take part in warm holiday traditions. But, there are some people who just don’t have the luxury of being with their loved ones.
Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood seem to have a soft side for unfortunate individuals who are unable to share in the joys of Thanksgiving. In fact, the superstars have started a tradition that shines the light on their humble generosity.
In an interview with ABC News, Trisha said, “We kind of do a misfit Thanksgiving for all of our friends who can’t get home for the holiday. We just kind of say, ‘If you don’t have a place to go, come to our house,’ and we cook.”
“With us a lot of it’s more like the crew, guys that just kind of move there with a dream,” added Garth.
We at Rare Country can only imagine that the couple’s dishes will be delicious. After all, Trisha is a best-selling cookbook author and the host of Food Network’s “Trisha’s Southern Cooking.” With her amazing food prep talents, the stars have assigned Garth as the sous-chef.
“My job is just to kind of keep everything clean because she’s going to go through 18,000 tablespoons, all this stuff,” said Garth. “Go ahead and wash it, get it back out again, because she’s going to keep going.”
Trisha says that the menu will be “carb-loaded” with items like, turkey, dressing, ham, mashed potatoes, sweet potato soufflé, cranberries, pecan pie, and deviled eggs. Yum!
If that’s not enough, the married couple’s love for the holidays stretches even further. On Nov. 11, Garth and Trisha released their first-ever Christmas-themed duets album titled “Christmas Together.” The 11-track record even features a Thanksgiving-themed tune called “What I’m Thankful For.”
But, don’t expect the lovebirds to be performing at the table during their festive get-together. Trisha says there is no singing because, “after all that turkey and dressing you just kind of want to take a nap.”
