Now You Can Eat Your Favorite Country Music Stars Own Recipes

628x471

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 over 30 of country’s biggest 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, the 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.

Highlights include:

  • Personal stories from six-time Grammy winner Amy Grant, who attributes the deliciousness of her perfect Pot Roast recipe to the speckled blue roasting pan that was passed down from husband Vince Gill’s grandmother – a legendary cook.
  • A cooking lesson from Wynonna Judd, who reveals her generations-old family recipe for Broccoli Casserole, a favorite of her daughter, Grace
  • Grilling alongside Florida Georgia Line’s Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard, who reveal the secret recipe for their Serrano Pepper Burgers.
  • How to cook for a crowd from The Zac Brown Band with recipes for Louisiana Blue Crab-Stuffed Catfish Fillets, Bacon-Mushroom Stone-Ground Grits and Cajun Remoulade – a favorite meal among band members and fans at the band’s legendary “Eat and Greet” suppers.
  • Familyrecipes from Allison DeMarcus, host of CMT’s Reel Eats and wife of Rascal Flatts’ Jay DeMarcus, who shares her momma’s Breakfast Casserole recipe. On casseroles, she says, “That’s a Southern thing. You just have to know how to make one if you’re from the South.”
  • Dessert with Scotty McCreery, who shares his Great-Grandma Lillian’s Pound Cake recipe. If you’re like Scotty, you’ll top that rich cake with a healthy dollop of whipped cream and a handful of fresh blueberries.
  • A specialty recipe for No-Bake Cocoa Cookies from Trace Adkins, who loves making these gluten and dairy-free cookies with his kids.

Country Music’s Greatest Eats is the perfect marriage of two beloved elements of Southern culture – music and food – and according to Holly Williams, daughter of the legendary Hank Williams, Jr., songwriting and cooking aren’t all that different. “You choose your ingredients,” she says, “you try and fail a few times and keep trying you taste and test and taste and test, and the moment of finding the perfect mix for a recipe is equivalent to when I’m in the studio, and I hit on the perfect mix of words and music.”

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.

11253_1392898473

The Bobby Bones Show started their Pimpin’ Joy Week today, March 3rd and will continue through the 7th. On the heels of the program’s one-year anniversary entertaining Country radio listeners nationwide, as well as being co-honored with the 2014 Academy of Country Music Award in the “National On-Air Personality of the Year” category, the week-long celebration will feature special guest appearances and live performances by Brad Paisley, Dierks Bentley, Jake Owen, Sheryl Crow, Gloriana, Thomas Rhett, Charlie Worsham ,A Great Big World and others.

Created by The Bobby Bones Show, which launched nationwide on Country radio in February 2013 and currently reaches more than two million weekly listeners on more than 60 stations, Pimpin’ Joy is a movement dedicated to inspiring people to choose joy, spread happiness, and do good things for others. It was first launched to honor co-host Amy and her mother Judy, who has been battling Cancer for two years. Throughout their struggle, both women made a conscious effort to not let hardship or difficulty cause them to lose hope or positivity in their lives – instead, they choose to be happy, pass on joy, and influence others to do the same.

To date, thousands of supporters have shared their Pimpin’ Joy efforts via Twitter and Instagram using #PIMPINJOY. In addition, Country artist Walker Hayes recently wrote and dedicated a song to the effort called “Joy Like Judy,” which can be heard below.

Bones stated, “It’s awesome to see the Country community come together for a cause that is so important to us and our listeners. There is too much negativity in the world today, and this week is all about making a conscious effort to choose joy, and promote happiness.”
