The Zac Brown Band has responded via their Twitter page to the letter they received last week urging them to change the menu at their pre-show 'eat and greets' from meat to an all-vegan spread.

"Dear PETA -- Plants are living creatures too ... Bacon had a mother, but so did Pickle. It takes life to support life -- welcome to the planet," writes the Grammy-winning group, in response to PETA's letter asking for menu replacements such as tofu.

Our guess is the band will stick with what works, and that includes serving big plates of pork and beef at their celebrated eat-and-greets. Besides, 'Tofu Fried' just doesn't have quite the same ring to it that 'Chicken Fried' does.

Over the weekend, the Georgia-based band performed at the Budweiser Shootout at the Daytona International Speedway, and as their single 'Highway 20 Ride' continues to climb the country charts, they'll take their 'eat and greets' to San Diego, Calif. on March 2.
