With a rousing holler, Jim Grastie of Fayetteville accepts a trophy for third place in the men's division of the 39th annual National Hollerin' Contest in Spivey's Corner on Saturday.
Hollerin' is the oldest form of communication and should not be confused with hog calling. In this audio clip recorded at the 2007 National Hollerin' Contest, you will hear, in order, Jim Grastie with a rendition of "Lion Sleeps Tonight," Men's division champion Kevin Jasper and his version of
"Shortnin' Bread," a NASCAR news poll, Jim Grastie (again) doing the "wake
up" and "siren" hollers, Women's division champion Shelia Frye just plain
hollerin', and Jim "Mater Man" Ray performing his "Hokie Call" in honor of
those killed at Virginia Tech.
