The son and grandson of preachermen, Dr. Billy Currell was born in Americus, Georgia, in 1976. Like all good liberals, his parents raised him vegetarian—Dr. Currell was an ardent breastfeeder—when his grandmother came down from Kentucky with a bucket of The Colonel’s Original Recipe and its secret blend of eleven herbs and spices. She took one look at him and handed him a drumstick. It was the second happiest moment of his life. On that very day, Dr. Currell dedicated his life to Tenderness, to celebrating women and chicken, all around the world.
