Add a Grammy award-winning musician to that cup of tea, please.
Nine-time Grammy Award recipient Sheryl Crow will be asking the questions during actress Reese Witherspoon's "Whiskey in a Teacup" book tour this month at the Kentucky Center for the Arts.
Reese, one of the most powerful women in Hollywood, is bringing her buzzed-about book tour to Louisville, and it's all about growing up in the South.
Crow, who just happens to be in Louisville the same weekend to perform at the Bourbon and Beyond Festival Sept. 22 will chat with Reese the night before, Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m. in Whitney Hall. (FYI: general admission tickets start for Bourbon & Beyond start at $110).
"Whiskey in a Teacup" is part memoir, part recipe and entertaining manual for how to party like a Southerner. The eight-city tour, fittingly, hits mostly Southern cities. Witherspoon spent most of her childhood further down Interstate 65 in Nashville.
"My Southern heritage informs my whole life, and spreading the gospel of Southern living has become sort of an obsession of mine. I bring the South everywhere I go with bluegrass, big holiday parties, and plenty of Dorothea’s fried chicken," she wrote. (Dorothea is her mom, BTW.)
