Bart and Rorie are taking the Tour back on the road to Discover Small Town America in the Southeast. Bart’s new gig as an advisor on the America’s Best Communities program (Country music star Vince Gill is ABC’s spokesman – http://nbcnews.to/1HiU2PU) has them stoked to visit some new and other better-known small towns.
They’ll be departing from the Gulf Coast of Florida and traveling highways and byways on their way to Memphis, TN, where diets and tight pants will be put aside to make way for some great barbecue and other southern goodies.
While they know they’ll be checking out places like Plains, GA, home of that famous peanut farmer, and Oxford, MS, hometown of authors William Faulkner and John Grisham, and the campus of the University of Mississippi, Bart and Rorie will be getting an “insider’s” scoop on other hidden gems to add to their itinerary from good friends Clay (a native of Mississippi) and his wife Mary (who’s from Georgia).
If any Tour “followers” have ideas about other people and places (and eateries) Bart and Rorie should check out during their upcoming travels, please post them here. Stay tuned…
