Home Cookin’, Rocking Chairs, & Craig Morgan

I have so many great memories of traveling when I was a kid and so many of those memories come from the road trips we would take with my grandparents. No matter where our trip was taking us, one thing always seemed to remain the same — our stops at Cracker Barrel!

My grandparents firmly believed that “getting there” was half the fun and fast-food meals were not an option. Therefore, we always stopped for a sit-down breakfast and dinner (lunch was packed sandwiches). Most often, those sit-down meals took place at Cracker Barrel.

My siblings and I never seemed to mind those stops at Cracker Barrel because, besides the yummy food, we knew that, as our grandparents took FOR-EV-ER to drink their coffee, we would get to rock in the rocking chairs outside and look through the Old Country Store. And, if we were extra good, we would get to buy a piece of rock candy or one of those humungous jaw breakers from the Old Country Store!

Apparently I’m not the only one who loves Cracker Barrel. Recently country music star, Craig Morgan, released his newest CD, That’s Why Collector’s Edition, exclusively at Cracker Barrel! He even includes Cracker Barrel in his song “Lookin’ Back With You“!!!

Craig Morgan is one of my favorite country music artists and this cd is absolutely amazing! If you don’t own it already, you need to head out to your nearest Cracker Barrel, grab a delicious ‘home-cooked’ meal, and then pick up Craig’s cd or one of the many other artists’ cds in the Cracker Barrel Old Country Stores!!! And then go relax in one of the fabulous rocking chairs on their front porch!

To bring a little of that “down home” feeling to one of our readers, Cracker Barrel is generously giving away an amazing prize package here at 5 Minutes for Mom.

One winner will receive:

  • A certificate for one core Cracker Barrel rocking chair – $129.99 value*
  • A copy of Craig Morgan’s ‘That’s Why – Collectors Edition’ CD – $11.99 value
  • 1 Cracker Barrel Gold Card, which is good for 2 complimentary meals at a Cracker Barrel restaurant

  • To enter, simply leave a comment below by Friday, October 1st. This giveaway is open to US shipping addresses. Please see our site’s terms and conditions for our complete contest rules.

    *The certificate, CD, and Gold Card will be shipped directly to the winner but the winner must use the certificate to pick up the rocking chair at a Cracker Barrel store, as shipping is not available.

    Thank you to Cracker Barrel for not only providing our winner with such an amazing prize but also providing me with the Craig Morgan cd for review purposes.

      I love those chairs. We always wait outside on the veranda in one waiting to be seated. How wonderful it would be to own one! Thanks for the opportunity.

      I’ve been told repeatedly that I should check Cracker Barrel out but have yet to venture over to our local one. My husband would love the chair as well (myself included) Thanks for the opportunity!

    4. Tawnda says

      looks perfect! (FTR… remember to check on the location of your nearest Cracker Barrel store… I’m going to have to drive near 15 miles to the only CB within 25 miles to pick up the chair… looks worth it!)

    5. says

      This contest rocks! No pun intended. And what’s even more enticing is the fact that I have to go to the store for pick-up…darn, that means I’ll have to eat there, as well!!

    6. Darla says

      Oh my gosh, what a GREAT giveaway. I LOVE Cracker Barrel and Craig Morgan is the one who got me hooked on country music!!

    7. Lana Bailey says

      I LOVE taking my children to Cracker Barrel every time we travel! I’m not sure who loves it more, me or them. Thank you so much for sharing!!

      We have a couple of Cracker Barrels not too far away so it would not be a problem to pick up the chair and eat at the restaurant. We could listen to the CD on the way home!

      my family patronizes our local cracker barrel 2-3x a month and always when we go to our monthly twins support group meeting which is located nearby. we would love to be entered for the rocking chair contest!

      I remember as a young girl, we’d drive from Ohio to Georgia at least twice a year. Daddy loved Cracker Barrel, and we stopped at every single Cracker Barrel on the way down and back – it didn’t matter if we had just stopped half an hour before. To this day, Cracker Barrel is one of my absolute favorite restaurants, and even though I have to drive more than an hour to get to the closest one, it’s well worth it! Would absolutely love to win this prize. Thanks for the opportunity!

      We don’t have a Cracker Barrel locally so when we have to head over to Asheville or if we go to Pigeon Forge for the weekend we know without a doubt one of the first places we are going to eat is Cracker Barrel. My daughter is a breakfast person and she loves the fact that no matter what time of day it is she can still have breakfast. I believe my favorite time of year to go to Cracker Barrel is when they are decorated for Christmas. Loads of my Christmas decorations came from Cracker Barrel and I continue to add to them every year. I love the wooden ornaments. AND their Chicken Pot Pie is to die for!

    12. says

      Yum – I love Cracker Barrel! I have always wanted one of those rocking chairs, but never forked over the dollars for it. Thanks for such a great prize!

    13. Sandra K321 says

      I love sitting in the rockers on the porch at Cracker Barrel while I wait to be seated. It would be great to have one of my own.

    14. MJ says

      My toddler loves it when we visit her grandparents, because they have a rocking chair. She pretends to “go rocky-rocky” at home, but it just isn’t the same…

    15. says

      I would love to be included. Ive been looking for a rocking chair for my porch and this would be perfect. Cracker Barrel is one of my favorite places to eat, espcially on a nice cool Fall afternoon. Thanks!

    16. says

      The rocking chairs are my favorite part of Cracker Barrel, plus the cute items in their shopping area, the fun game on the table (which everyone always does better than me) and then the food. I would love to own one of their rocking chairs.
      Thank you…

    17. Jennifer3 says

      Oooh, I love to sit in those rocking chairs! Of course if I win we will have to be taking a road trip since, sadly, there are no Cracker Barrels in my state.

    18. says

      I would love to win! We used to live in the south & Midwest & had the opportunities & making memories at Cracker Barrel, but we miss them so much now that we live in the northwest. As soon as I seen the rocking chair I thought that I had to try to win. Also because it would be great to have from my memories & because I am going to become a grandma soon (for the first time). Thanks for giving your readers this opportunity!

    19. says

      We have one REALLY close to me and you know what’s sad?! I have only eaten there ONCE! Help me eat there again and supply me with a rocking chair for when I get old! hehe <3

    20. says

      We are big Cracker Barrel fans. My family loves their meals and I love their little shop. We always have a great time and spend too much money. And Craig Morgan? Well, he’s my favorite male country artist.

    21. Snowflake07 (Audra) says

      What an awesome prize package! Cracker Barrel is such a great place to eat, and I’d love the CD and rocking chair! :-)

    22. Wendy M says

      What an amazing giveaway! I love, love, love Cracker Barrel. Living here in Michigan it is the only place I know that I can go and get good southern cooking, and corn bread without sugar. :-) They have such delicious food, and a wonderful homey atmosphere.

    23. Carolyn Gates says

      My grandma has two of these chairs and I love visiting with her and rocking while we talk and she gets to see my children. Great giveaway!

    24. racergirl1313 says

      I love Cracker Barrel. We don’t have one super close so it is a treat to get to go there. They have the most delicious salads that are so big I can eat them for 2 meals!

    25. hippie4ever says

      Ohhhh! I love Cracker Barrels rockers, I remember sitting in them waiting for a table with my Dad, on many a road trip! And Stacey, you have got to try Lindt’s 90% MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

      Cracker Barrel is my favorite restaurant. And after I eat all of that great food, it would be nice to rock it off in a cool Cracker Barrel rocker…
