Iron Chef Cat Cora joins the ranks of Kerry Simon, Rick Bayless and Adam Richman to reveal some of her favorite tunes for KCRW's Guest DJ Project.

The Mississippi-born Cora segues from country to classic soul but says all her song picks represent major milestones in her life, most notably her wedding to wife Jennifer. So what instrument would Cora play if she was in a band? The answer should surprise no one.

“I don't do anything halfway, so if I'm going to be in a band I've got to be the lead singer. Right? That's just me,” Cora says.

Cat Cora's Track List

1. (You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman – Aretha Franklin

2. At Last – Etta James

3. I Hope You Dance – Lee Ann Womack

4. You're In My Heart – Rod Stewart

5. Sunshine – Steve Azar
