Spivey’s Corner, NC---
Larry Jackson steps to the microphone with the confidence of a competitor who has seen this scene before. Earlier in the contest, Tony Peacock hollered from deep down in his toes. Kevin Jasper, last year’s champion, brought his A-material, a series of traditional hollers infused with his own personal twists.
The bar sits mighty high.
Listen to Larry's championship hollers.
