As a child, Kimberly from Little Big Town pretended she had a cooking show
and now she’s in her third season of Kimberly's Simply Southern on GAC.
She says her favorite thing to make is Coca-Cola cake! When her life gets
too busy, she remembers her great-grandma who had 11 kids and walked
seven miles to and from work every day.
