Bobby Tweedy was born in Louisiana and spent his formative years there. After his father was discharged from the military, his family moved back to their real home in the hills of Southwest Virginia. That's when Tweedy had two influential experiences â€” he met his grandfather, and then watched the man make moonshine. The rest, as they say, is history. Tweedy got to know Jeff Waldroup, Mark Rogers, and Mike
Lewis at a hunting camp in Virginia.
