MUST SEE TV / TIVO ALERT
Lissen up, all y'all..."Hillbilly: The Real Story", a 2 hour program about our oft maligned subculture airs this Sunday nite !! (7 pm CT, 8 pm ET)
Hosted by Billy Ray Cyrus, who has finally rid himself of the mother of all mullets, but is still a homey and downright proud of his heritage. So hopefully this won't be a stereotypical slack jaw inbred booger eating moron take on us.
Personal note: Billy Ray grew up in the very same area and town in northeast Kentucky as my Dad. I saw Cyrus recently in an interview talking about his hometown and it tickled me to no end. I kept saying "Yep, I've been there!", "I know where that's at!" having spent most of my childhood summers at my gran'ma's there in Ashland, Ky. The younguns thought that was purty cool-just a few degrees of separation 'twixt me and him. Of course, Billy Ray's career is getting a second wind, thanks to the Disney channels popular 'tween' show, "Hannah Montana", in which he plays the dad. His for-realsies teenage daughter has the title role. That show is big at our house with the younguns.
Anyway, you know we'll be watching and any true blue hilljack n jill of the Hillbilly Ecosystem oughta be too!
