While the Appalachian Mountain range does extend from Alabama to Canada the part of them that run thru North Carolina are the Blue Ridge Mountains. We do have some wonderful little mountain communities in our mountains, but I think most people associate the term "Appalachia" with the areas more in Kentucky, West Virginia and southwestern Virginia. In fact, if it's mountain music in particular you are looking for do some studying on the Crooked Road Music Trail. That's really more where you'll find your "hillbillies" too

Hey, I've been to Asheville and the locals there aren't any different than my relatives in Tazewell County Virginia which is deep in the heart of Appalachia--and they're all hillbillies! The real question is are you looking for hillbillies or rednecks? Many hillbillies qualify as rednecks but not all rednecks are hillbillies
