Maren Morris, Garth Brooks & Keith Urban Share What They’re Thankful for in 2019

As everyone takes a break to stuff themselves with turkey and count their blessings on Thanksgiving, we asked three of our favorite country stars—Maren Morris, Garth Brooks and Keith Urban—to tell us what they’re thankful for in 2019. And wouldn’t ya know it, “family” was a common theme.

“I’m thankful for my health and my husband [Ryan Hurd] and our baby on the way—and getting to do this crazy dream for a living. The response to my album [Girl] this year has been really emotional and incredible, so I’m thankful for all of that.”

“The health of my children, the health of my wife [Trisha Yearwood], of course. Also, I’m getting to watch my girls [Allie Colleen, 23, August Anna, 25, and Taylor Mayne, 27] turn into their mother [Sandy Mahl] and Trisha, so it’s beautiful to see that. I’m watching three girls in their 20s step into the workforce. I’m watching them roll up their sleeves—no excuses—and get in there and just work. That makes me proud as a father.”

“Seeing our family grow—Nicole [Kidman] and I have almost-9 [Faith Margaret] and 11-year-old [Sunday Rose] girls, seeing them starting to flourish is unbelievable.”
