What is The Sunshine Skillet! ?

It sounds like pan-fried potatoes, corn on the cob and an open prairie breeze kissing stalks of barely and rye, hot and sticky coke bottles, homerolled cigarettes, and noisy rocking chairs.  Banjos, washboards, and harmonicas, frayed red guitar straps, and feel-good finger-plucking licks. Bourbon and lemonade, earnest honest decency, and a generous a dollop of down-home whimsy. Lots of love, plenty of humor, and a generally sunny disposition.

Some timeless classics, some unheard gems, all perfectly off the beaten path.
