Often used as an insult and racial slur against White folks who live in the country. A hillbilly is a person who lives in a remote, rural area in the South, often in the Appalachian (Or sometimes Ozark) Mountains and therefore is isolated and somewhat out of touch with modern culture.

The stereotype of a hillbilly is a person who: Is a White Southerner who owns a shotgun, goes barefoot, wears a worn out floppy hat, drinks moonshine and whiskey which he makes himself, plays the banjo or fiddle, drives old beat up pick up trucks, has bad teeth, is poorly educated, has long a beard, wears worn out clothes and hand me downs, and is happy and content with what they have.

Just because someone is a hillbilly doesn't mean that they fit the hillbilly stereotype listed above.

Contrary to some of the other entries, hillbillies don’t live in trailer parks; they can’t otherwise they wouldn’t be isolated from modern culture and therefore would not be a hillbilly. They don’t eat road kill; many are actually farmers and hunt for their food, they don’t pick it off the side of the road. Also, hillbillies don’t go around sodomizing people, that is a fictional movie Deliverance which has contributed too many of the negative stereotypes.
A Redneck lives in trailer park and goes on the Jerry Springer show; a Hillbilly lives in a shack or cabin out in the middle of nowhere and doesn’t even have a TV.

Similar to a redneck but less drunk and obnoxious, nor imbred. See, our trucks are for getting around and exploring the mountains on the back roads, redneck trucks are eye candy that is more expensive than what is reasonable for there income.

Hillbillies are not ignorant, and some may even have education.

Redneck idiots knock up there 2nd cousins and the result is a child with physical and mental illness, whereas hillbillies wear a condom.

Simple. Why complicate shituff.

Rednecks waste 20 bucks on a 12 pack, whereas we spend 20 bucks on sugar and yeast and end up with hooch for 2 for weeks.

Some people call us cheap, but a more hillbilly way of saying that is called thrifty or financially savy.
Opinionated, but these opinions derived from observation and experience.

Not all of us are yanks, some of us are canuckleheads. Our home and native land, eh.
When something is jerry rigged or put together creatively out of other things, it is a hillbilly rig.
I stepped into his shower and he had hillbilly rigged a lawn sprinkler to the pipe as a shower head. True story

I had to hillbilly rig 3 fucked stereos together to get sound from the speakers.

Contrary to popular belief Hillbillies are no smarter or dumber then a person from the city, though Hillbillies tend to enjoy the simpler pleasures in life, are laid back, have a penchant for homemade liquor, and have their own slang words.

It is a gross misconception that Rednecks and Hillbillies are one in the same, in truth they are not.

Hillbillies in short are the American version of the true Bohemian.
A Hillbilly, and a Redneck are not the same, Hillbillies, don't date family members.
