TIM, FAITH SPENDING TURKEY DAY AT HOME

Tim McGraw and wife Faith Hill are getting tons of TV time this week -- each has a special and he's loaded with interviews to promote his new album.

Despite all that, the couple will be at home with the family for Thanksgiving.

"We just want to be home and see our parents and let the kids see Meemaw and Peepaw and Geemaw and Geepaw and just kind of relax," McGraw tells LAUNCH.

McGraw's first TV special is during primetime Wednesday and Hill's is Thanksgiving night.

"Tim McGraw and the Dancehall Doctors" is being released Tuesday, as is a book about the album project.

After Thanksgiving, McGraw is set for several network TV interviews and his Grand Ole Opry debut Saturday night.
