Part of our mountain lore includes moonshine. It’s hard to talk moonshine without mentioning Popcorn Sutton...one of the best-known moonshiners...especially around Maggie Valley. He died a few years ago but his daughter is in town to be featured in a “Maxim” magazine article about her father and his recipes, which she's offering to the Alaska distillery she works for. She talked to News 13 along with Asheville musician Jody Medford who's about to release his music video for the song "Moonshine.” A release party is scheduled July 26 at Legends in Maggie Valley and Wild Wings Café July 27th in Asheville. “Maxim” magazine's article on Regina Sutton is due out in a couple months.
