“Storytelling in Appalachian culture – it runs deep. You have these communities and families that, for a long time, were isolated, and if you did have time off after working to keep everything going, you’d sit around and just yak, just talk and tell tall tales and flat-out lies and try to one-up the guy who just told a story.” ― Tyler Childers
