Americana Highways’ Key to the Highway series
Fans always clamor to learn more about their favorite, most beloved musicians and those who travel with them. There’s such an allure to the road, with its serendipity, inevitable surprises, and sometimes unexpected discomforts. This interview series is a set of questions we are asking some of our favorite roots rock Americana artists to get to know more about them and what they’ve learned and experienced on the road. We are sure they have key insights to share and stories to tell. Here’s one from Cody Dickinson.
Americana Highways: How do you like your coffee or other morning wake-up beverage?
Cody Dickinson: Folgers with French vanilla
AH: What’s the most interesting or strangest motel/hotel or place you have stayed (while on the road?)
AH: If one CD is stuck in the player in the van for the entire tour, what do you hope it is? And why?
CD: Beethoven’s sixth symphony; it’s totally psychedelic
AH: What’s one personal item you must have with you on your road trip?
AH: What is your relationship with food? How do you handle this on the road, and what’s your favorite dish on the road, (or restaurant, and what do you order there)?

AH: If you could pause your life for a few weeks and spend some time living in a place you only have passed through, which would you choose, and why?
