Popcorn Sutton Jam
The 8th. Annual Popcorn Sutton Jam is set for this weekend at the Cocke County A&I Fairground. Sutton, a well known Cocke County moonshiner, died in 2009. His widow, Pam Sutton says the event will feature Mark, Digger and JB from the Discovery Channel's "Moonshiners", and there will be music Friday and Saturday. "We do this jam to remember Popcorn but I also want to help the economy of Cocke County. It brings in revenue and tourism, and that is my biggest goal; to help Cocke County." Events are planned for 4 pm till midnight on Friday and from noon till midnight on Saturday. Nine bands are on the lineup along with lots of vendors and the Ms. Juggs pageant. The 6 pm Saturday pageant will feature the area's best-known men, in their sleaziest ladies attire, in an event to benefit the Susan G. Komen Foundation, and breast cancer research. Popcorn's moonshine car, banjo, hat and other prized possessions will be on display, along with an open car show. Entrance is $10 for adults and children 12 and under are free. The fairground is located on West Highway 25/70, west of Newport.
