If you're like many Americans, chances are your Thanksgiving plans involve a healthy dose of family time. Maybe you're thankful to sit around the table with relatives you love, or maybe you'll be thankful when the holiday is over and they leave. Either way, here are 10 musical families you might not mind talking tofurkey with.

Bonus: Scroll to the bottom (or just click here) for a complete Spotify playlist featuring family bands. It's guaranteed to get you through that road trip to your in-laws' place in the suburbs, or just drown out any dinner-conversation-turned-political-debate.
