5 0 GROUP TRAVEL LE ADER T H E My playlist today for long f lights includes alt rock musi- cians like Jay Farrar, Sonvolt and The Tallest Man on Earth, plus old favorites like Van Morrison, Bob Dylan and Tom Petty. There is also one particular soundtrack I've downloaded that resonates with me when I'm traveling: "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty." I think it's one of the best travel films and soundtracks made in recent years. — Mac Lacy, PUBLISHER My playlist has anything from U2, Imagine Dragons and the Cure. — Donia Simmons, CREATIVE DIRECTOR I like '90s grunge, alterna- tive, punk mix. If you're look- ing for girl pop music, please see Brian Jewell. — Stacey Bowman, DIRECTOR, ADVERTISING SALES Sing along to one Taylor Swift song, and Stacey Bowman will never let you forget it…. — Brian Jewell, EXECUTIVE EDITOR I like music from all genres and have a pretty eclectic library on my iTunes, but my current favorite road trip album is "The Traveller" by Chris Stapleton. I did make Brian Jewell suffer through what was essentially the Lilith Fair's greatest hits on a recent road trip, though, so he'd probably tell you all I listen to is chick bands. — Kelly Tyner, DIRECTOR OF SALES AND MARKETING We have a pretty wide taste in music, so we always pick our playlist based on our destina- tion. Louisiana meant zydeco and jazz. On another trip to Mississippi, we listened to blues legends like Howling Wolf and Lead Belly. On extralong drives, we throw in favorites like Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Shakey Graves, too. — Ashley Ricks, CIRCULATION MANAGER My music tastes are always evolving, but a few of my favorite travel tracks include "Sleep on the Floor" by the Lumineers, "Hopeless Wanderer" by Mumford and Sons, "Dreams" by Brandi Carlile, "Dog Days Are Over" by Florence and the Machine, "Somewhere Only We Know" by Keane, "First Train Home" by Imogen Heap and "It's Not Impossible" by Ben Sollee. — Savannah Osbourn, STAFF WRITER EDITOR'S NOTE Welcome to Staff Sound-Off, the monthly column where our staff members answer questions about their travel practices and preferences. We hope you enjoy these tips. If you have a question you'd like to see us answer, send it to me and it may appear in a future issue.
