Country star Trace Adkins is turning his performance at America's MACy's Thanksgiving Day Parade into a family affair on Thursday (22Nov12) by bringing his youngest daughter along for the ride.

The singer will be part of a line-up featuring pop artists Carly Rae Jepsen, The Wanted, Neon Trees and Flo Rida, which will wind through the streets of New York to celebrate the U.S. holiday.

Adkins will be playing his Grammy-nominated hit Just Fishin', about making memories with his daughter, as part of his set and he insisted on having his little girl, Trinity, right by his side because it's her song as much as it is his.

During an appearance on U.S. morning show Today on Tuesday (20Nov12), he said, "My seven year old is gonna be on the float with me. We're trying to reenact the video for Just Fishin'. This was her video; she was in this video."
