I knew Popcorn and I have written a series of articles about him. Globalcopywritingservice.com...
As we Tarheels say "He was the real McCoy. Popcorn talked to me just a week or two before his demise. We spoke about his life, his daughter (perhaps), and his death too. He told me how he would never live through the experience if he had to go to jail. I have Neil Hutcheson's DVDs, both of them; The documentary "The last one" and "This is the Last Dam Run of Likker I'll Ever Make." (Sucker Punch Pictures).
Marvin Popcorn Sutton, one of Appalachia last true Mountain men and genuine moonshiner. But more than that, he was an instructor and a teacher with high standards, and would always boast that his product was the best in the world. He was one of the best true Marketeer that I have seen. He had Courage to stand up for what he believed and the guts to tell "it" like it is and the tenacity to continue his public persona, no matter what. I've been asked many times, since my original article came out, what he was really like. All I can say is: Very few people really knew Marvin Sutton, his personal life was only seen by a few of his closest friend. He didn't trust many folks and insisted that he could do everything himself. When I asked him could I write a book about him, he told me he'd write it "his own damn self"!
I received a letter from Popcorn soon after his death, in his own shaky handwriting. He did, in fact revise his book, and he left Pam Sutton his wife more than a legend, he left her a legacy as well.
The book is great read, the book is very informative, and for those who actually had the chance to meet "Ole Popcorn", reading this book will give you a insight to the real personality of Popcorn Sutton.
The series about Popcorn Sutton: "The Legend of Popcorn Sutton" only compliments this book. I get hundreds of emails a week from those who have met Popcorn and those who want to know more about him. I always tell them, to buy his book, the proceeds go to his wife Pam. Any funds derived by my efforts will always go to her as well... He said my Likker comes in three kinds: The Fightin' kind, The Cryin' kind and the Banjo pickin' kind... He'll smile down at JB when he plays the banjo...
