Kimberly’s Simply Southern, a one-of-a-kind cooking show featuring Little Big Town founding member Kimberly Schlapman, has been renewed for a third season with 13 new episodes on Great American Country. New episodes will premiere in early Spring 2014.
In each episode of the hit series, Kimberly hops off the tour bus while on the road with her Grammy Award-winning country band, Little Big Town, to discover America’s best local foods, ingredients, culinary customs and treasures. Once back in her Nashville kitchen, she is joined by family and celebrity guests to create authentic southern meals combining her traditional family recipes with the ingredients she learned more about during her travels, which in past seasons included citrus, chocolate, dairy, mushrooms, oysters, goat cheese and bacon and in 2014 will include Sourwood honey glazed ham, Louisiana shrimp, homemade biscuits, hot and spicy chicken and others.
The Band Perry doesn’t have much down time given their busy tour schedule, but when they do get the opportunity to relax, two of the three siblings have hobbies they enjoy. Neil loves photography while Reid enjoys horseback riding. It’s big sister Kimberly that struggles to find something to do besides music.
“I always feel kinda like a loser when I get asked this question about hobbies because honestly since I was 15 I spent every waking minute with music and pursuing our dream,” she said. But while Kimberly says she doesn’t have a hobby, she actually does have a few activities she enjoys.
