In Their Words: “Since the late 1800s, North Carolina moonshine has made its way into the lips and livers of its avid supporters. ‘Carolina Still’ is a story I wrote to honor the memory of my great-grandfather Gus Davis, a descendant of Buncombe County and a lover of a good corn mash. After spending most of his life as a Cavalry Sergeant, my great-grandfather eventually returned to his home of Asheville where he lived the remainder of his life on Hillside Street. With every word and note, ‘Carolina Still’ reminds me of my family’s heritage, Asheville ancestry and familiar memories of Appalachia. This history is more than memory. It is burned into my very existence like my first drop of moonshine.” — Barrett Davis
