Don't Tell Maw Maw

Don't Tell Maw Maw

By Mandy Leah Katy
Hey Y'all! I'm Mandy, I'm Leah, and I'm Katy. We started Don’t Tell MawMaw as a way to stay connected now that we are spread across the US. We want to invite y’all along as share a little bit about our family roots, southern culture, and love for the south, specifically the Mississippi Gulf Coast where we all grew up. Our Mawmaw’s knew every bit of what went on on the coast, and they shared the best stories, the hot gossip around town, and their rich southern traditions with us. Now we’re here to pass on that pitcher of sweet tea to our listeners.
