SPB: What is your primary tour food?
We really don't have a primary tour food, though we are very into food. We always like to get the standout food in the cities we tour. Like pulled pork sandwiches at Tony Luke's in Philly or Joe's Kansas City BBQ. Ani is a vegetarian so she is the only one with any kind of limitations. We are the kind of band that would give up a hotel or somewhere comfortable to sleep to eat a good meal. I used to do sound on a cooking show where I followed Little Big Town singer Kimberly Schlapman around the country while she went to farms and restaurants. Needless to say I got to eat some amazing food and I take that chance to share some of the places I've been with the band. When we don't get to eat good food, snacks are key. We love snacks.
