For the first time ever, Southern Living and CMT are partnering to celebrate two of America’s favorite things—delicious home-cooked food and country music—in Country Music’s Greatest Eats (May 6, 2014; Oxmoor House; $24.95). Much more than a cookbook, Country Music’s Greatest Eats is a backstage pass to the lives—and kitchens—of 30 of country music’s biggest and brightest stars, including legends like Alan Jackson, Hank Williams, Jr., and Wynonna as well as some of today’s hottest stars like Florida Georgia Line, Gloriana, Miranda Lambert, and The Zac Brown Band.
Music fans and Southern food lovers get a seat at the table with these incredible artists as they share recipes they grew up with, memorable meals enjoyed on the road, and the dishes they love to come home to. With more than 75 recipes, extensive interviews, and personal photos Country Music’s Greatest Eats captures the sizzle and flavor of country music.
“Southern Living is thrilled to collaborate with CMT on this book of personal stories and prized recipes,” said Southern Living Editor in Chief Lindsay Bierman. “Every page captures the taste and spirit of the South, giving consumers exclusive access to the homes, lives, and poignant memories of our their favorite artists.”
• More than 75 of the artists’ favorite recipes, each passing the rigorous demands of the Southern Living Test Kitchen
• Interviews with the artists that reveal the best part of the recipe: the story behind it
• Photographs of the artists and a behind-the-scenes look at featured stars in their homes, in the kitchen, and on tour
With Country Music’s Greatest Eats home cooks everywhere can turn up the music, get into the kitchen, and start cooking along with their favorite country stars.
