Description

In the South, food and music go hand in hand. They define much of what we think of as Southern culture, and they say a lot about our past, our present, and our future. Each week, Sid Evans, Editor in Chief of Southern Living, sits down with musicians, chefs, and other Southern icons to hear the stories of how they grew up, what inspires them, and why they feel connected to the region. Through honest conversations, Sid explores childhood memories, the family meals they still think about, and the intersection of food and music in their lives. Always surprising, always engaging, Biscuits & Jam is a celebration of the South—and the people who are moving it forward every day.

The Castellows are three sisters—Eleanor, Lily, and Powell Balkcom—who started sharing their music on Instagram just a couple of years ago, and now they seem to be everywhere. Their newfound success has led them to a fast-moving career in Nashville and to the recent release of a new EP called A Little Goes a Long Way. With beautiful harmonies and lyrics about a simpler way of life, many of the songs pay tribute to the sisters’ roots in rural Georgia, where they grew up spending weekends on the lake and singing hymns at a small country church. Sid talks to the sisters about how their music career is helping to carry on a family name, their love of Georgia football, their grandmother’s cooking, and how homeschooling gave them the time to focus on their music.

Tyler Hubbard was born and raised in Monroe, Georgia, where he grew up working in the garden with his family, competing in motocross races, and playing music at his church. He met his bandmate, Brian Kelley, at Belmont University in Nashville, and by 2012 Florida Georgia Line was one of the hottest acts in country music. These days, he’s entered a new phase in his life and career. He’s a father now, with a wife and three kids, and after taking a break from recording with Kelley, he’s also reintroducing himself to fans as a solo act. His new album, Strong, is set to release just a few days after this episode comes out, and he has a big tour ahead of him with Kane Brown. Tyler joins Sid to talk about his new music, how different his solo career has been from his days with Florida Georgia Line, and the father he misses every day.

Emmy Russell was born in Hurricane Mills, Tennessee, and grew up touring and performing with her grandmother, Loretta Lynn, as well as her mother, Patsy Lynn. She doesn’t sound much like the “Queen of Country,” but Emmy has a beautiful voice and plenty of talent as a songwriter. On an episode of American Idol earlier this spring, she wowed the judges with an intensely personal song that caught the country’s attention—and earned her a ticket to Hollywood. It’s called “Skinny,” and it touches on her past struggles with an eating disorder, as well as a deep lack of confidence that’s kept her off the stage. Now Emmy is finding her own voice and looking at a bright future in music. Emmy talks to Sid about why she had to take a break from the family business for a few years, what Loretta taught her about songwriting, and the famous guitar she gave her at the age of 15.   For more info visit: southernliving.com/biscuitsandjam Biscuits & Jam is produced by: Sid Evans - Editor-in-Chief, Southern Living Krissy Tiglias - GM, Southern Living Lottie Leymarie - Executive Producer Michael Onufrak - Audio Engineer/Producer Jeremiah McVay - Producer Jennifer Del Sole-Director of Audio Growth Strategy & Operations Learn more about your ad choices.

Jennifer Nettles was born and raised in rural South Georgia, where she got very involved in 4-H as a kid, a relationship that’s still a big part of her life. She went on to an extraordinary music career, winning a long list of Grammys, CMA Awards, and ACM Awards with Sugarland in the mid 2000s. By 2015, she’d started to work more in film and television, including her roles as Dolly Parton’s mother in Dolly Parton’s Coat of Many Colors and Dolly Parton’s Christmas of Many Colors, and now she’s the host of a successful dating show called Farmer Wants a Wife. Jennifer never saw herself in that kind of role, but she talks about why this concept is so different from others in the genre, and why she’ll always feel connected to the farming community. She also shares a sneak preview of her upcoming album, Timeless, her thoughts on the evolution of country music, and what the hit song “Baby Girl” means to her 20 years later.

Cedric Burnside is the grandson of the famous bluesman R.L. Burnside, and he’s also a Grammy-winning artist who’s taking the genre into new territory. He started playing the drums when he was still in grade school, and by the age of 13 he was playing juke joints and traveling the country with his grandfather, whom he referred to as “Big Daddy.” Cedric talks with Sid about his life growing up on a farm, how he approaches music as a songwriter, and why he’ll never leave Mississippi. Plus, he talks about his new album, Hill Country Love (out 4/5/24), which is infused with his own unique spin on the sound that his grandfather helped define.

Devon Allman grew up in Texas and Missouri, and didn’t meet his father, Gregg Allman, until he was a teenager.

Now the two are performing, recording, and writing songs together.  Devon joins Sid to talk about what it was like growing up with the Allman Brothers Band, as well as the unique relationship he had with his father.

José Andrés was born and raised in Spain and has brought his love of Spanish cuisine to successful restaurants in New York City and Washington DC. While he now has dozens of dining establishments in a host of different cities, what really sets him apart is the work he’s done with World Central Kitchen.

In this episode, José talks to Sid about the many kitchens of his childhood, how cooking for those in peril is both an act of relief and a chance to learn, and how longer tables are perhaps the closest thing to a perfect place on Earth.

On this episode, Sid Evans, Editor-in-Chief of Southern Living Magazine, chats with Hoda Kotb, one of the anchors of ‘The Today Show’ on NBC and an author. She was raised in West Virginia while visiting family in Egypt. Unfortunately, her father passed away while she was in college, which of course took an emotional toll, but the lessons she took from the experience has helped her to move through her life successfully. Before her time covering world events, she spent time as a local news reporter in various markets and, in more recent years, she’s also become an author.

Brent Cobb grew up in Ellaville, Georgia, where he was encouraged by his parents – especially his songwriting father – to pick up a guitar. Following the advice of Luke Bryan, he moved to Nashville, where he used his talent to write hit songs for everyone from Kenny Chesney to Miranda Lambert, but now he’s known as a Grammy-nominated artist and performer all his own. In 2022, he produced a gospel record based on a lot of the music he grew up with in the Baptist church. And now his latest album, Southern Star, stands as a tribute to both his small-town Georgia roots and the people he’s lost.

Bethany Joy Lenz was born in Florida and grew up in Texas, which is where she first got involved in the performing arts, carrying on a tradition she inherited from her grandparents. Her family eventually headed to New Jersey, where her Southerness drew the wrong kind of attention from some of the girls in her class, but she made it through the experience and eventually landed on the hit TV show One Tree Hill. Now Joy is living in Nashville, writing and performing music, editing a publication called Modern Vintage, and hosting a podcast with her One Tree Hill co-stars called Drama Queens. If that’s not enough, she’s starring in the new Hallmark Original Movie, A Biltmore Christmas, which is based on a trip back in time to the famous North Carolina estate, and she’s working on a book about her years spent in a strange cult.

In this week’s episode, Sid Evans, Editor-in-Chief of Southern Living Magazine, chats with Miranda Lambert, a woman who’s fearlessly blazed her own path through country music. Growing up in small town Texas, where there were seemingly more churches than people, she encountered every aspect of life thanks to her supportive parents and family. Her loving parents were private investigators and often opened their home to clients and other people in need – especially women who needed a safe place to escape to. And these encounters provided inspiration for much of the world weary songwriting that may have sometimes outpaced her own lived experience early in her career. But while she’s been standing firmly on her own two feet for a while now, she still has an impressive intergenerational support system of women who back up her confidence and now she’s got a cookbook that pays homage to them.
