The reunion was no doubt emotional for the family, who stayed at home while the star promoted her new album, Denim and Rhinestones, on the other side of the pond.

Discussing her family life during an interview on Absolute Radio Country, the award-winning artist admitted that she's happiest when she is at home.

She said: "I don’t go places…on my own if it is left up to me and my devices, I would just be a little homesteader and just stay home and do nothing. I shouldn't say do nothing, I am actually very busy when I am at home, but it is chores, I am doing chores."

The country star took part in several interviews while in the UK and last Wednesday she went on ITV daytime show Lorraine, where she opened up about her family life away from the spotlight with host Lorraine Kelly.
