In the 30s not far north of Copperhead Rd. on 167 where the Duggers live now, a lady was bitten on the forearm by a copperhead as she reached into a hen's nest for eggs. She initially recovered but suffered some kind of cardio-vascular damage and "lost her health." She was said to have died young, about eight years later.

From wikipedia...The title song "Copperhead Road" (an actual location near Bristol, Tennessee) tells of a Vietnam War veteran, scion of a rural moonshine bootlegging clan, who returns home to Johnson County, Tennessee to grow marijuana on his family's land (the song also inspired a popular line dance timed to the beat of the song).

It's Johnson co. Ky; if you listen to the song, he says " he was headed DOWN to Knoxville with a weekly load; you could smell the wiskey burn'n down copperhead rd."

Copperhead Road is an American country music/country rock album released in 1988 by Steve Earle.

The title song "Copperhead Road" tells of a Vietnam War veteran, scion of a rural moonshine bootlegging clan, who returns home to Johnson County, Arkansas to grow marijuana on his family's land (the song also inspired a popular line dance timed to the beat of the song). "Johnny Come Lately" (performed with The Pogues) compares the experience of US servicemen fighting in World War II with those in the Vietnam war, and contrasts the differing receptions they received on returning home. Copperhead road is an actual road near Cabin Creek Rd. Arkansas]" compares then president Ronald Reagan to a traveling con man. "Back to the Wall" n about poverty, and "The Devil's Right Hand" can be read as how firearms are a tool for destruction. Unlike some issues-oriented musicians, however, Earle doesn't limit himself to political material, but also includes apolitical works such as the love song "Even When I'm Blue" and the religious piece "Nothing but a Child".

More recently Shawn Mullins, a fond admirer and songwriter, has been playing "Copperhead Road".
