My old Kentucky home, Jack!
Posted by erinoestringer on March 7, 2013
I’m a pretty big Duck Dynasty fan. It is actually the first thing that comes to my mind when I think of hillbillies. (Mainly because I like to blissfully pretend Turtleman doesn’t exist. The Kentucky hillbilly hits a little too close to home. Literally.) Its funny though, all the Robertson’s have either a bachelors or masters degree and before they made the show they were all clean-shaven country club dwellers. Phil actually started as quarter back at Louisiana Tech side by side with Terry Bradshaw. Beverly Hillbillies indeed.
It definitely differs from how our reading discusses hillbillies and the negative connotations associated with them. I know I resent the stigmas against Kentucky and that people think we don’t wear shoes. But I will take it in stride as I enjoy the highlights of our great state, such as heart-warming accents, horse racing, and fine bourbon.
