It was an understandably rough week for Blake Shelton in light of the death of his dad, Dick Shelton — but that didn't stop the 'Honey Bee' hitmaker from reaching out to say thank you to his fans for their well wishes. On Thursday, Shelton sent out a series of tweets to talk about his father and what he learned from him, which gave us just a tiny peek into how much the singer will miss him. While his wife Miranda Lambert was relatively quiet throughout the ordeal, she too reached out to show appreciation for caring fans. Also in This Week's Best Tweets, Lauren Alaina found herself missing her 'American Idol' buddy Scotty McCreery, or Scott, as she lovingly called him when she sent him a direct tweet. He didn't respond, but only because he was busy deciding what to have for dinner. See what your favorite country stars were tweeting this week!
