With Thanksgiving coming up soon, we all take a step back to realize how grateful we are. These emotions can often be strong since people have so many blessings in their lives. With music being so tied to our emotions, it is no wonder certain songs can help us feel thankful for all we have in our lives. Here are a couple of songs which are sure to help feel appreciative for everything you have been blessed with.
I’ve Got Plenty To Be Thankful For by Bing Crosby
This song was featured in the 1942 film Holiday Innwhere Bing Crosby provides this catchy tune about being thankful. The song’s simple lyrics provide a great message about being thankful for the little blessings you can have in life. Crosby reminds us that we don’t need all the money in the world, just having eyes, ears, and arms is enough.
But for the Grace of God by Keith Urban
Similar to the Crosby song, Keith Urban reminds us to be thankful for everything we do have. In a beautiful country song, Urban gives thanks to the Lord and allows the rest of us to feel the same gratitude through his lyrics.
Be Thankful by Natalie Cole
In this funky-gospel song, Natalie Cole powerfully tells her audience to be thankful through her impressive vocals. The lyrics are deep, reminding us to give thanks to the Lord for each day we get to see the sun rise in the morning. With Cole singing these lyrics, it is hard to imagine your emotions not feeling this tune.
The Thanksgiving Song by Ben Rector
One of the best parts of Thanksgiving is simply being at home with all your family and this song by Ben Rector helps us remember the importance of having home and being surrounded by love. It is a great tune to sit back and feel the blessings of having a place where you belong surrounded by people you love. It is truly a Thanksgiving anthem.
Coat of Many Colors by Dolly Parton
This amazing tune by Dolly Parton tells a story about a coat her mother made her as a child. It allows the audience to know about Parton’s humble beginnings. While she did not grow up with much, she did grow up with a lot of love. This is enough to be grateful for.
