Lots of Southern folks in attendance at the Grammys last night: Kings of Leon, the Avett Brothers (including the stand-up bass player they won’t officially let into the band), Usher, Lady Antebellum, and the belle of the ball, Cee Lo Green (accompanied by some creepy faux-muppets).
Check out my interview with The Wild Within host Steven Rinella. If you haven’t seen this new show on the Travel Channel, add it to your DVR/TiVo queue asap.
I know this has already gone viral, but if you haven’t seen Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon rap like they’re not white, please watch it. It’s hilarious.
I'll forsake personal vanity here because I'm so proud to be in the company of Rodney Scott.
ABC’s Nightline did a Labor Day–inspired segment on BBQ, and who should appear front and center but Hemingway, South Carolina’s own Scott’s Bar-B-Que. I met pitmaster Rodney Scott at a party at Billy Reid’s Bond Street store after the Big Apple BBQ Block Party this past summer, but I had been a fan of his family’s establishment for much longer. Check out the video, featuring Southern Foodways pioneer John T. Edge, here.
