Production will begin this spring with a premiere of the new episodes scheduled for late summer. The announcement was made by Doug Butts, SVP of Programming for INSP. "In 2016, State Plate celebrated the unique food traditions of 13 different states," said Butts. "We have been extremely pleased with the way our audience has responded. Ratings continue to exceed our expectations, and viewer engagement has been strong. Now that a second season has been greenlit, we will add programs featuring additional states to the series library. Our goal, eventually, is to feature every state in the U.S.!"
Taylor Hicks returns as host. "Taylor's wide popularity, experience as a restaurateur and down-home charm made him an ideal host for this series," said Butts. "Building on the rapport he developed with audiences in season one, Taylor once again will take viewers on a culinary tour of each state featured and 'assemble' a plate filled with the food most associated with each state. In the process, he uncovers the customs and cultural insights behind each state's unique food traditions. It's a heaping helping of America's most beloved cuisine, rich in history, folklore, and flavor."

6. INSP Announces Destinations for Season 2 of State Plate
New Episodes of the Award-Winning Culinary Travel Series, Hosted by Entertainer Taylor Hicks, to Premiere This Summer
Family-entertainment network INSP has released its destinations for season 2 of State Plate, its award-winning culinary travel series hosted by platinum-selling entertainer and former American Idol™ winner Taylor Hicks.
“After much contemplation and deliberation, which included looking at viewer emails, calls and countless social media posts, we have determined we will feature the below states in this next season,” said Doug Butts, Senior Vice President of Programming at INSP:
In the new season, Taylor Hicks will once again embark upon a captivating tour to assemble a plate of that state’s most emblematic foods. Along the way, he will visit farms, ranches, markets, festivals and other diverse locales in order to uncover the stories and legends behind their unique food traditions.
“It’s been very exciting to see and hear comments from our viewers, especially from those who have lobbied hard to have their own state’s culinary heritage featured,” continued Butts. "With so much great food and history to explore, narrowing the list down to 12 was difficult, but we are confident that what we have selected will offer up a heaping helping of unique cuisine that is both rich in history and flavor.”
RIVR Media continues as producer of State Plate and they plan to begin shooting new episodes this spring. The series is scheduled to premiere on INSP in late summer 2017. https://www.prweb.com/releases/2017/03/ ... 106921.htm

Taylor Hicks Interview: "American Idol" Winner Talks "State Plate" and New Music
Written by Melissa Parker, Posted in Actors
Birmingham, Alabama, native Taylor Hicks is one of the most beloved and popular American Idol winners of all time. From the start, his material on the mega-hit show set him apart, with his unique take on Country, Southern Soul, R&B and Blues. Less than three weeks after his Idol victory, his debut single, “Do I Make You Proud,” entered at No. 1 on Billboard’s Hot 100, Pop 100, and Single Sales Charts. His self-titled debut album came out in 2006, the next in 2008 was called Early Works, and in 2009, Hicks released The Distance.
In 2017, in addition to releasing a new album, his upcoming tour includes performances in Florida, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Hawaii, Illinois and Minnesota. He currently stars as the host of State Plate, a new food and travel series, on the Inspiration Network (INSP), which originally premiered in October 2016 and has been renewed for a second season.
“I had put my name in the hosting hat for a while. It just took the right concept and the right network. This was kind of the perfect storm of circumstances. Obviously, they had heard about the restaurant , and they knew I wanted to do some hosting. So, the concept came up. It’s not like any other food and travel concept on television.”
On State Plate, Hicks takes viewers on a culinary tour of each state featured, assembling a plate filled with the food most associated with each state. In the process, he uncovers the customs and cultural insights behind each state’s unique food traditions. The destinations for season two will be Mississippi, Alabama, Vermont, New York, Missouri, Iowa, Minnesota, South Dakota, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Oregon and Washington.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Taylor, congratulations on the renewal of State Plate for a second season. Has the premiere date been set?
Taylor Hicks: We’ll start filming in spring and summer. That all takes time to edit. So, we will be able to hopefully announce the premiere date pretty soon.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): How did you become involved in the show?
Taylor Hicks: I had put my name in the hosting hat for a while. It just took the right concept and the right network. This was kind of the perfect storm of circumstances. Obviously, they had heard about the restaurant , and they knew I wanted to do some hosting. So, the concept came up. It’s not like any other food and travel concept on television.
It sort of combines a lot of the best shows in this arena and discusses food from an educational standpoint, so the concept was perfect. It was a brand new show. I think learning how to be a host, getting my feet wet in the hosting world is something that had to happen. But, it’s a brand new show and a brand new concept. It’s a great concept and it’s educational. It’s the perfect storm, so to speak.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Other than being educational, how is it different from other food TV shows?
Taylor Hicks: Well, for example, a barbecue angle is real regional specific. This show is not regional specific at all. If anything, it’s completely the opposite. We go to every state and talk about iconic foods. This hits everybody, and that’s something you have to consider when you’re talking about network television.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Guy Fieri drives all around the country on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. That sort of has a “road trip” concept. Is Slate Plate similar to that show?
Taylor Hicks: It’s got that idea, but it also goes to the origin of where the food comes from. It’s a cross between Mike Rowe’s Dirty Jobs and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. We go to the farm and to the establishment, too.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Do you speak to the people living in those areas?
Taylor Hicks: We do a lot of discussing and talking to all kinds of different folks from each state whether it’s the farmer, someone on the street or someone that lives in the town. When we go into a particular state, we try and pull out as much knowledge as we can about these iconic foods.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Any singing on the show?
Taylor Hicks: There’s always a harmonica around. There is a musical component to the show, not necessarily always, but when the mood strikes.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): What’s your favorite location and food so far?
Taylor Hicks: I enjoyed Maine. I guess we visited Maine at the right time between the weather and the time of year because we were able to go lobstering and talk about lobster boats. I played in Portland, Maine, a few times, but that was actually a one night and done type of thing. We actually got to visit the state for a while for the show. That was one of my favorites. And, you can’t beat blueberries and lobster.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Do you cook?
Taylor Hicks: When I can. I’m on the road a good bit. But, I do when I have a big kitchen to cook in. Cooking is more of an all-day event for me as opposed to something quick and easy because I’m always on the road. If I’m in a big house and we don’t have anything to do, I’ll get the big idea and cook for everybody. So, yeah. It just depends on where I am and what I’m doing.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): When you have the time, what’s your go-to dish?
Taylor Hicks: It just depends. I can cook anything from fried chicken to fish. You don’t have to be a good cook. You just have to be patient. There’s definitely artistic and creative thought that goes into it. But, I think a lot of it is love and patience.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Is there a release date yet for the new album, Taylor?
Taylor Hicks: The single is coming, and the album will follow. There hasn’t been a release date yet, but I have delivered songs. A quarter of the record has been delivered. Over half of the record has been recorded, so it’s well on its way.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): This is your first album in about eight years. What’s the reason for the wait?
Taylor Hicks: I think it’s a combination of projects and gathering music. I’m not the kind of artist that’s going to put out a bad single every two weeks. I’m going to put out a good one and make sure it’s good. So, there were a couple of different factors coming in.
Obviously, there’s the money you need. Recording in this day and age, to do it right, still costs money. It just does. You have to find the right mix of great songs, and you have to have funding and time.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Are you writing all of the songs?
Taylor Hicks: These are songs I’ve written and songs I’ve collected.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Musically, how is this record different from The Distance in 2009?
Taylor Hicks: It’s got a little bit more of a roots component to it. They’re still great songs. If Zac Brown and Jackson Browne had a kid, it would be me as far as the sound goes on this record. I’m really excited about the way that it sounds because it’s all me.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Are you singing some of the new songs now on tour?
Taylor Hicks: I’m playing around with a couple of songs live. That’s the reason I kind of like doing the acoustic thing. I get to work those into the set. So, yeah. There are a couple of songs I’m playing live right now.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): Do you enjoy recording as much as performing live?
Taylor Hicks: They’re both one and the same. Each head space is the same for me. I love performing, and I also like getting into the production and the writing process. It’s a culmination of both. They’re both the same kind of head space, and I love them just the same. It’s not a chore or job for me. It’s a passion and love for both studio work and performing.
Melissa Parker (Smashing Interviews Magazine): You were crowned the American Idol winner in 2006. Does it bother you that you’re still associated with that show over 10 years later?
Taylor Hicks: You know, I don’t mind it at all. It’s where I came from. I’ll always be indebted to that for the big break and that was that. So, no, I don’t have a problem with it at all. I’m very happy and proud to say that I won American Idol when it was the hottest and that it was the blessing that allowed me to be in 11 years of show business since that time.

Taylor Hicks gets a taste of home as 'State Plate' films its Alabama episode at Saw's Juke Joint
Real men wear hairnets.
At least, they do if they're TV hosts, visiting places that are strict about food safety.
Birmingham's Taylor Hicks, who hosts the "State Plate" series on INSP, boldly traveled the country in 2016, expanding his culinary horizons and learning about iconic American foods.
Hicks, a former "American Idol" winner, shucked clams in Massachusetts, herded sheep in Arizona, tossed pizza dough in Illinois and went on a cattle drive in Texas. And yes, the singer wore a hairnet when it was required -- at a sauerkraut factory in Wisconsin, for example -- as he researched scrumptious foods during a 12-state trek.
"There's some mixed reviews on what I look like in a hairnet," Hicks said this week, during a visit to Birmingham. "And I think there would be mixed reviews for anybody wearing a hairnet. As the host of a food and travel show, you've got to throw caution to the wind, and do some things that might be out of your comfort zone. When you're going into some of these factories, you have to take care of the food and make sure it's not contaminated. Sometimes a hairnet is necessary, and I feel like I'm the lunch lady."
Hicks, now immersed in filming episodes for Season Two of "State Plate," said he'll do whatever it takes to produce compelling television, tossing his ego aside as he travels to 12 more states in 2017. The singer made a promise, though, to fans who might not enjoy seeing his famous gray locks under wraps.
"We're going to use the hairnet very sparingly, hopefully," Hicks said, with a hint of a smile. "Less is more, in that regard."

The online vote, which ran from June 1st through the 15th, gave viewers the power to pick one of the twelve additional states to see on TV this season. And viewers chose North Carolina!
“I’m so stoked that North Carolina will be featured this season,” announced Hicks. “Being one of the original 13 colonies, North Carolina has some amazing stories to tell about their culinary heritage. With input from viewers, the new states added are going to feature some of the best foods in America.”
After two seasons, State Plate will have documented the most popular foods from 36 states in the U.S.
On INSP’s award-winning original series, State Plate, entertainer and restaurateur Taylor Hicks tastes his way across the United States on a quest to assemble plates that represent each state’s most historic, famous, and tastiest foods.

Taylor Hicks Hosts Second Season of “State Plate”
A Heaping Helping of America.
by Carol Muse Evans
http://birminghamparent.com/article/tay ... plate.html
The family entertainment network INSP has renewed Birmingham native Taylor Hicks’ popular TV show, “State Plate,” and released the states to be included in late 2017 shows, according to Doug Butts, senior vice president of programming at INSP.
If you haven’t seen “State Plate,” you are missing a fun and educational treat with the lovable host Taylor Hicks, former “American Idol” winner and platinum-selling entertainer. In each episode, Hicks takes viewers on a culinary tour of a particular state, choosing items that are iconic to the region and the state, explaining how the food is grown or made, often demonstrating and of course, sampling.
He visits farms, ranches, markets, festivals and other locales to uncover stories and legends behind unique food traditions to that particular state. Why is Georgia known for peaches? Wisconsin for cheese? Alabama for peanuts? You’ll find some expected items, and some unexpected ones, and Hicks shows you and tastes every item for you.
“This is my first true hosting job,” Hicks says. “I’ve been in and out of TV, but this is a regular gig, and it’s educational for me and the viewer.” Each episode is a half-hour long and includes an appetizer, entrée, two sides and a dessert.
“While it is a TV show,” Hicks adds, “it is also being packaged as an educational liberal arts program. I’ve really learned to respect the small amount of farmers who hold up the food supply in our country. They truly do put a lot of this food on the tables across the county, and we have to take care of the farmers who give us the foods we love.”
Currently, you can view “State Plate” in Alabama Fridays at 6 p.m. On Spectrum, it is channel 252 or 74; on Dish Network, 259; on Direct TV 364 and AT&T 564, but this is subject to change. Check out the website to be certain of the time and channel in your area, and even view past episodes online at www.insp.com/shows/state-plate/ or visit www.stateplatetv.com.
The show was a Cynopsis TV Awards winner for 2017 Best Reality Series (Travel). The show is Parents Television Council approved.
Coming in the 2017 season of the show is Alabama, Mississippi, New York, South Dakota, and eight more states. And for Hicks fans, he has a new album coming out soon and will be touring again. Learn more about it at www.taylorhicks.com. He also is slated to perform August 26 at the Oxford Performing Arts Center in Oxford, Alabama.
Carol Muse Evans is publisher of Birmingham Parent and loves “State Plate.”
15. Extreme Luxury Getaways
Taylor Hicks: Cooking it up in New York
https://www.extremeluxurygetaways.com/a ... n-new-york
"You can’t come from Alabama and not be a foodie."
On Election Day in 2004, George W. Bush received 62 million votes to win presidential re-election. On May 24th, 2006, Taylor Hicks received 63.4 million votes to be crowned Season 5 American Idol champion. To this day, the accomplishment of the latter is the one I recall more fondly.
Taylor Hicks, then only 29 years old, had already been performing music for over a decade, releasing two independent albums, and performing at musical venues mostly in the Southern US. He shared the stage with the likes of James Brown, Tom Petty and Jackson Brown. Mainly self-taught, Taylor plays harmonica and guitar, and of course uses his vocal gifts to create a tone as deep and rich as the earthy sheen on a well-worn saddle.
Then came American Idol. Despite the strong competition of finalist Kathrine McPhee, (not to mention some other highly talented contestants that year) Taylor managed to attract a strong cohort of the public who enjoyed a mix of country, blues, rock, and soul. His renditions of Take Me Home, Country Roads, Trouble, and You are So Beautiful impressed the judges and the voters alike.
After several guest appearances on TV, headlining at Caesars, and gracing the Broadway stage in Grease, Taylor has a new venture that combines culture, travel, personal connections, and something we all love – FOOD. A restauranteur himself, Taylor is hosting a culinary travel series called State Plate, broadcast on INSP, in which he samples signature cuisine from each of these Unites States (spoken in Taylor’s Alabama accent). His journey to Maryland featured their famous crab cakes, and in Texas he sampled a bowl of chili (with cornbread, I’m sure). By the end of the second season, the goal is to check off 36 states from the bucket list of deliciousness.
But just as we at extremeluxurygetaways.com believe in storytelling over standard content, so Taylor dives headfirst into each of his state plates (not literally) as much a historian as a chef, pairing the cuisine to the culture and to that state’s natural resources.
State Plate has come to NY; the episode airs on Friday, September 1 at 8:00PM ET. We had the opportunity to interview Taylor concerning his motivation for the show, his love of food, and, of course, his take on luxury.
* * * * * * * * *
ExtremeLuxuryGetaways: How did you first get interested in the culinary arts and the food culture?
Taylor Hicks: Well, I think everybody who is born in Alabama is part of a culinary culture. You can’t come from Alabama and not be a foodie. It’s built around family and friends, but also being a restauranteur and with the travel I have done through my music career, which I have been doing since I was 17, [food] has been part of my lifestyle…it’s been a labor of love to a certain degree, and it’s been a blessing as well.
ELG: What do you see as the relationship between your music background and your culinary background? What is your conduit from one to the other?
TH: I think art is art. It’s in the eye of the beholder, or rather in the eye of the taste buds, so to speak. It’s across the board…a great meal is like a hit song – there’s a lot of moving parts, and you have to put a lot of love and time into it, there’s sweat equity and emotional connection in both…and that’s why I love both of them.
ELG: By the end of the second season of State Plate, you will have covered about thirty six states. How many have you done up to now?
TH: I think we’re up to 26, and we’re moving through them pretty quickly. I’m just blessed to get to travel still as much as I do, and with this show, getting to see the culture of American, and not just the culture in general, but the food culture of each particular state. You know, there are different regions of food for us here in America. We try to expose what each state loves, and what iconic food comes from each state. This is the reason why I think State Plate is such a great show…because I think it clearly defines the food that comes from each state.
ELG: Do you have a favorite state so far that you have featured on the show?
TH: Maine has been one of my favorites, and being from Alabama we just hadn’t gotten up to Maine all that much. I loved it because we went during lobster season when we could get out on the boat..and then obviously just the blueberries…I guess just the state in general is really earthy and really all about its arts whether it be music or food…it was one of those states that we hit right at the right time with the perfect combination of food and music.
ELG: On a slightly different note, when you first auditioned for American Idol, Simon Cowell doubted you. Have you found with this venture (State Plate) that you’ve undertaken that there were any similarly doubters, and how do you address that?
TH: Yeah…I think it just comes with the business. You know, you’re always going to have people doubt what you do, whether you’re in show business or in culinary arts, you always going have some speculation whether it’s going to be a hit. Being the host of a food and travel show, it’s the culmination of a lot of hard work, and you know, opportunity creates luck, and it’s something you have to be aware of. I have been in show business now upwards of over a decade, believe it or not, and every time you just hope things work out, and for this particular venture, State Plate, it hit.
ELG: How do you define luxury?
TH: I think another word for happiness is luxury. Wherever your “happy place” is, that defines your own luxury.
