Lady Antebellum star Hillary Scott is preparing to spend her first Thanksgiving away from her family as she marks the holiday as a married woman.

The singer exchanged vows with drummer Chris Tyrrell in January (12) and she has agreed to spend the upcoming festive holiday on Thursday (22Nov12) with her new in-laws.

Scott fears she may feel homesick while separated from her relatives, so she is insisting on making a special dish for dinner with Tyrrell's family.

She tells E! Online, "I will be with my in-laws for the first Thanksgiving since we got married. Here is my one stipulation, because this is the first Thanksgiving away from my family, I have to make my grandmother's sweet-potato casserole. So I'm bringing the recipe and I'm making it because it wouldn't feel like Thanksgiving if we didn't have that."
