Country music star Chris Young has revealed why he is responsible for his family’s Thanksgiving feast. The 35-year-old star shares how he is always counted upon for cooking the turkey.

Young talks about the funny interaction he had with his mom. During a Thanksgiving preparation, Young decided that he would be a good contributing family member and prepare and cook the turkey.

However, it might have backfired a bit as he is now the family chef on the big day.

“So the turkey every year is on me now because last year I decided ‘Hey, I’m going to cook the turkey’ and I’m going to do everything.”

Young continues to explain why he is relied on for cooking the feast.

“And my mom saw me doing it and was like I don’t have to do this anything. So, now that job has fallen to me. And, it’s a lot of prep work. And, it’s a lot of fun when it gets finally done. You take it out of the oven and everybody gets to carve into it. It’s pretty cool.”

Last year’s Thanksgiving Day was eventful for Young. After performing at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, he rushed home to cook dinner for his whole family.

“Been a crazy day, but the [turkey] is done and about to sit down with my family! Very thankful for them, my job, and for anyone reading this!”

Indeed, Thanksgiving is always a crazy time. However, if you are the one cooking the food it’s even more hectic.

Chris Young Has a New Single Out

In addition to preparing Thanksgiving for his family, Young has a new single out with Kane Brown called “Famous Friends.” The song came out on November 19 and is already climbing the charts worldwide.
