I think you missed a big one ——-You know you’re from North Carolina, when you take part in a North Carolinian rite of passage; Taking a wrong turn on the way to Myrtle Beach and ending up in a damn ol’speed trap in South Carolina!
You gotta include Delta Rae from Durham in that music list… They WILL win Best New Artist Grammy, It’s just a matter of time. I feel like we should remember David and Amy Sedaris, two hilarious writers raised in Raleigh as well, when thinking of talented North Carolinians. That smell of tobacco in the air in North Carolina? That might be somebody smoking, but It’s just as likely to be an actual cigarette factory in your town.
