Asheville celebrity sighting: Jim Tom of ‘Moonshiners’ show


Loyal reader zen graciously allowed me to post a photo he took today and posted on his Facebook page. The photo shows Jim Tom, who appears in the Discovery Channel reality show Moonshiners, signing a few autographs.

From the Moonshiners website:

Jim Tom is a moonshiner, gifted storyteller and one of the few living legends of the moonshine world. He’s been a biker, pilot, HAM radio operator, and musician, but, through it all, he’s made and drank corn liquor. Sixty years making moonshine and still going strong, Jim Tom even brewed while he was in prison.
