"Country star with an un-countrylike name" was KEITHURBAN. A clever clue! And I was unfamiliar with HOPPINJOHN, a southern dish made with black-eyed peas. A recipe from Emeril Lagasse is on the Food Network's website: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/emeril-lagasse/hoppin-john-recipe.html

"Starts a revolution" was UPRISES. I had never heard "uprise" used in reference to a revolution. Until today's crossword, it apparently had not. According to the Merriam-Webster Collegiate Dictionary, "uprising" dates from the 13th century and is "a usually localized act of popular defiance usually of an established government." The verb "uprise" dates from the 14th century and is defined as "to rise to a higher position; to stand up; to get out of bed; to come into view, esp. from below the horizon." Those participating in a revolution rise up; they do not "uprise."
