It’s New Year’s Day, a day people nationwide usually “ring” in (whatever that means). But in Cherryville, North Carolina, they don’t just ring it in … they shoot it in.

My dad’s family hails from Cherryville (pronounced Cherr-ville in the local intonation), a small town in the foothills that’s typically a quiet place — until New Year’s Eve arrives.
