Cookbook recommendations for traditional southern (US) cuisine?

Hi /r/recipes. I grew up in the south and have eaten traditional southern food my entire life. I cook frequently but have never tried very much southern food out of fear I would foul it up. It's close to my heart but I want it to be closer.

Can you recommend a few cookbooks I can check out to get in to it proper? I know it varies regionally within the South but hit me with your favorites.

Thank you!
