The first song Peck and Fairchild danced to was “Cornbread and Butterbeans,” an irresistible ditty about hard work and the simple joys in life: “Cornbread and butterbeans and you across the table, eatin’ beans and makin’ love as long as I am able. Growin’ corn and cotton too and when the day is over, ride the mule and cut the fool and love again all over.”

The Carolina Chocolate Drops: This pin links to a Live Set Youtube video of one of the most extraordinary things I have ever heard. There is nothing Rhianna Giddens, the lead singer, cannot do. "Country Girl" at 22:43 is an anthem for the rural south.
