There are two very different definitions here.
1.) A man or older boy from the South
, in this case the stereotypical redneck
. Likes cheap beer, NASCAR, football, pro wrestling, hunting and/or fishing, and country or hard rock music. Not necessarily a bad person, but occasionally portrayed as racist, though many could care less, aside from occasionally cracking a racist joke with his buddies; this is not usually how he feels about Blacks or Hispanics. Generally all about having a good time. They may speed to impress a girl they're taking on a date, but won't hit-and-run; they may have a few beers to impress her at the bar later on, or even get in a fight there, but won't get so drunk he can't sober up and drive or send the other guy to the hospital. Generally speaks with a country accent or Southern drawl, usually the former. Often drives a rusty muscle car
or pickup, but at the same time many seem to drive small Japanese cars. A good example of this type would be the Duke boys from the TV series and movie, The Dukes of Hazzard. Often portrayed negatively, but not always a bad person. Again, they are pretty good-natured.
2.) This definition is still a man from the South, however, he is usually upper-middle class, rather "preppy
A Southern born boy who is country to the core. He likes to hunt and could not be prouder of his gun collection. He carries one knife in his pocket and another in his boot, in case the one in his pocket gets confiscated. Usually drives a truck and listens to country. A hard working, honest gentleman, who prefers the simple life and is just looking for a girl he can take shootin'.
