Also see . . .  Robbie Montgomery on Wikipedia. Montgomery was also a backing vocalist for such acts as Dr. John, Stevie Wonder and the Rolling Stones. She would always enjoy cooking for her bandmates while on the road, which would lead to inspiration for Sweetie Pie's. The television show based on the restaurant aired to 2018 (9 seasons). As of January 2023, one Sweetie Pie's location is open (Jackson, Mississippi; the last remaining St. Louis location closed in Sep. 2022).
