“Deer meat and turkey meat and anything wild is about as good as you can get,” Rhett Akins, an avid outdoorsman and hunter, tells Taste of Country when speaking of his wild turkey breast recipe. “The No. 1 main reason this recipe is cool is because you went out and got it yourself. You didn’t go to the grocery store and buy it. You spent hours and sometimes days or weeks trying to get the turkey. So it’s cool to know that you went out and did it on your own, like back in the old days.”

Although we are only four months into the new year, 2012 is already shaping up to be one heck of a year for Sunny Sweeney. In addition to going into the new year as a happy newlywed, the singer-songwriter is also gearing up to hit the road with several country hunks this summer — Gary Allan, Josh Thompson, Rodney Atkins, Justin Moore and Eric Paslay — on the 2012 Country Throwdown Tour. But that’s not where things stop for Sweeney. As she continues to criss-cross the country, she will also begin working on her sophomore album on Republic Nashville.
Next weekend (Sunday, April 1), the 47th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from Las Vegas.

Meanwhile, fans just can’t seem to get enough of his new single which he co-wrote with Lee Miller and Chris Stapleton.
