  4. Debbie Wiggins Layton

    They have a butter bean festival in Pinson Alabama every year. Out skirts of Birmingham Al.

  5. Harold Thompson

    DAvid Cain recorded a Song Just A Bowl of Butter Beans

    1. Mike Reaves

      Yep… and before this guy’s 1974 recording.

  6. Scott Williams

    And I avoid Pinson like the plague during the festival because it’s usually the quickest route to Trussville from Warrior.

  7. About 1960 Bob Cain, student at U.of Ala, and KA fraternity, sang “All I Want is a
    Bowl of Butter Beans” regularly. After he graduated, he sang at the bowling alley in Crestwood and appeared in bars on Morris Ave in Birmingham, and opened a bar/nightspot “The Cain Break”… Remember him and the song well.
