Good stuff.... brings back good Sat. a.m. memories.  From among many, one of the ones I liked best concerned the Hatfields vs. the McCoys... "and let the fuedin' commence."   We never had a TV while I was growing up; I got my fill when I boarded with my older sister in Winnipeg, for first year U.

Is being a hillbilly cultural or genetic? Ifin it's genetic I am one. Ifin it's only cultural, then I am a generation removed from long west virginia ancestry. That said, I am very proud of my ancestors...well most of em. Brad

so called hillbillies are the backbone of western expansion and one dang good TV show !!

seriously though,, they are  some of the toughest people on this planet,, and still ... the numbers of them still living in poverty are numbing,, they have been for hundreds of years. but yet they still survive..  i  have a few relatives that live in the mountains and when i go visit i am still considered a flat lander living in the piedmont area...  they are friendly but clanish in their own way.  but if break out my banjo and we get to pickin it all seems to go away.  there are some  awesome pickers up there you never hear of.

Nashville wanted nothing to do with Hillbillies in the 70s.

Originally Nashville considered itself the "Athens of the South". They did not want that image tarnished. But $$$ changed its attitude.

"Nashville" covers a lot of different people with a lot of different views.

I was "covering" the recording and performing businesses of Nashville in the 70s,Bill.

I agree with Brad. Embrace your hillbilly roots! Chuck97 is always razzing me about my roots north of HWY #7.

He even brings it up in totally unrelated threads! I think it's all projection & we are probably cousins.

Owen - Just out of curiosity who made that statement ? I am not questioning the statement, and getting more information about the author may be interesting.

I'd heard it before, but nevertheless,  I still consulted the all-knowing Google:   https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/8362723-he-s-a-humble-man-with-much-to-be-humble-about    And, yes, although I'm fairly ignorant, I think he was quite an "interesting" man.... lots of good (?) quotes/retorts/quips/insights.
