What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving? On GAC’s Top 20 Country Countdown, our gratitude includes an appreciation for all the country stars who’ve embraced the show, and in this weekend’s edition, the countdown will feature some of the best interview clips with Nan Kelley and Suzanne Alexander from 2010, including guest visits from the likes of Lady Antebellum, Kenny Chesney, Jeff Bridges and Reba McEntire.

It’s been a big year for many of the guests in the highlights episode. Trace Adkins released his first album after joining Toby Keith’s record company, Little Big Town snared a No. 1 country album, Blake Shelton picked up his first-ever Country Music Association awards and Taylor Swift sold 1 million copies of her new album in a single week.

For Lady A, 2010 has included the band’s first headlining tour, a big pop crossover hit with “Need You Now” and a pair of CMA trophies. The trio also appeared on “The Oprah Winfrey Show” and — of course! — the Top 20. In addition, Entertainment Weekly has reported that a Lady A song will be used in an episode of “Glee” that airs in February on the heels of the Super Bowl. Still, there’s one major TV spot the band hasn’t conquered that remains on its wish list: “Saturday Night Live.”

“Being backstage and hopefully havin’ conversations with a couple of those actors that are so hysterical and their timing is so great would be a lot of fun,” Hillary Scott says. “Not to mention everybody watches it!”

“SNL” has lampooned Faith Hill, Miley Cyrus and Reba this year amidst appearances by Rihanna, Kanye West, Jude Law, Ashton Kutcher and Betty White.

“If a Golden Girl can do it,” Hillary winks, “Lady A can do it!”
