Popcorn’s son Solomon Sutton’s age as father-of-two makes Moonshiners debut
In the final season of Moonshiners, we are introduced to a fresh figure, Solomon Sutton. His father, Popcorn Sutton, was a famous car manufacturer, but he did not live to see the success of the series. Solomon, however, steps into his father’s position and debuts in season 12, all while taking care of his own family.
The Sutton saga: Popcorn’s legacy lives on
The series often echoes the name of Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton, and occasionally touches on the family he left behind, including his widow, Pam Sutton. This season, the spotlight shifts to his son Solomon, who is diving into the industry.
Fans can’t wait to find out how old Solomon, a father of two, is now. His own father, the legendary Popcorn, a smuggler and smuggler, died at the age of 62 in 2009, leaving behind a remarkable legacy that Solomon now honors on screen.
Discovering Popcorn Sutton’s Son: Solomon’s Journey
Solomon takes the Moonshiners stage for the first time in season 12. He attended Tuscola High School but moved to Maggie Valley, North Carolina in July 2021 with his girlfriend Alexis DeNinno and their two children.
By profession, he is deeply involved in the sleepwalking industry. During his free hours, Solomon finds solace in activities such as horseback riding and hiking through North Carolina’s scenic Pisgah National Park and Foothills Parkway, often with friends.
Originally from Newport, Tennessee, Solomon has a son with Kayla Shannon. On Facebook, he thanked her for being a “good mom.” He also shared a touching message from his father, a testament to their enduring bond.
Solomon’s Age and Career: Continuing the Legacy
In 2009, at the age of 14, Solomon faced the loss of his father. After 13 years since Popcorn’s departure, the Moonshiners star is now about 27 years old and wholeheartedly embraces his father’s craft.
Solomon joins forces with greats like Mike Cockrell and Jerry Benson, collaborating to create innovative liquor recipes and maintain a competitive edge, as detailed in the Season 12 episode description.
Solomon recalls his 25-year affinity for this craft, hinting that his passion was ignited at the age of two. His eldest, Oliver, celebrated his third birthday on September 9, 2022.
On the trail of popcorn: Solomon and Sky
Besides Solomon, Popcorn Sutton also had a daughter, Sky Sutton. She wrote a self-published book in 2009 titled Daddy Moonshine: The Story of Marvin “Popcorn” Sutton. In an interview with Knox News in 2009, Sky revealed that she did not grow up with her father. Her childhood was spent with her mother in New England, and their interactions were mostly over the phone. Sky admitted that she hadn’t seen him since she was little.
Today, Sky invests her time in writing, traveling and cherishing moments with her canine companion. In 2022, she reposted Daddy Moonshine on the book’s Facebook page, a lasting tribute to her father’s legacy.
