Sweet Cherry Pie has a definite Southern, deep-fried flavor to it. I listened to a lot of folk and country  music while writing and editing it, particularly Miranda Lambert and her kick-ass girl group Pistol Annies. I also discovered some amazing artists (new to me at least) like Sarah Jarosz and honeyhoney while I was searching for new music. Here’s a playlist of some of my favorite tracks to listen to while I was working on this book.
