Our moonshine friend is back, and this time he is sporting what I have to assume is the coolest cane this side of the Mississippi.

My wife use to work at this store and has had the chance to talk to this guy in the past. She says hes actually a really nice guy, and he does live in the mountains of east tennessee. He drives to this store because the people at the store close to his always try to take pictures of him and make fun of him …. and as for the “i cant figure out if its dirt or tattoos” comment … they are all tats
lol…i’ve talked to him before at that store…actually a nice guy

This guy is one of my neighbors. No he isn’t Popcorn Sutton. He is a really sweet man though. He is a craftsman and makes all kinds of cool things (sorta like the cane he’s carrying). I’m pretty sure this picture is like the first time I’ve ever seen him wear shoes though. And I’m fairly certain all of his tattoos have a meaning to him they’re not just pointless.

No… this is not “Popcorn” Sutton. This is a very sweet man. I know him personally. He is a great person! I hate that he leaves town to be able to go to the store. I love the way he looks! I think he is pretty cool!

was this picture taken at the Walmart on Chapman Hwy in Knoxville TN? He looks just like a guy that comes in the store where I work.

Anyone know what kind of hat he is wearing? I looked up hillbilly hat and moonshiner hat but I cannot find one like his. That hat is awesome in my opinion and I want to own one

He is not dead. I saw him on Saturday at Walmart. A word of warning! He DOES NOT like to photographed because people do tease him a lot. DO NOT attempt to take a picture of him. He will turn into the hulk which may sound cool but is not in real life. Nice guy, makes birdhouses and honey to sell to locals.
