Interview with Perryville, AR native Shawn Camp, co-writer of "Sis Draper"

Question: "I really, really want to know. How much of the Sis Draper story is fact and how much is fiction?"

Answer: "Well, Sis Draper was not the devil’s daughter. She was a beautiful lady and played a great fiddle. Actually, the first autograph I ever signed was to Sis Draper; I was 9 years old. We did have "pickings" at the house. Uncle Cleve and Grandpa would always light up when we talked about her. They’d always put their best clothes on and tried to comb their hair just right whenever she came around."
