1. Craig Morgan - Redneck Yacht Club
Craig Morgan’s “Redneck Yacht Club” from his 2005 album My Kind of Livin’ is the perfect summer song. It has a very laid back vibe, and the lyrics playfully describe boating with your country friends and spending time on the lake- “Bass trackers, bayliners, and a party barge / Strung together like a floatin’ trailer park.” If you’re barbecuing and drinking with friends by the lake, this should definitely be one of your anthems.
2. Gretchen Wilson - Redneck Woman
“Redneck Woman” was the lead single from Gretchen Wilson’s debut album Here for the Party. It’s the classic declaration of being a country woman who’d rather get dirty and hunt than go shopping for high heels like the average girly girl. “Well, I ain’t never been the Barbie doll type / No, I can’t swig that sweet Champagne, I’d rather drink beer all night.”
3. David Allen Coe - Long Haired Redneck
This classic country song about rednecks was released on Coe’s 1976 album Longhaired Redneck. The song is basically about being a tough redneck who isn’t afraid to get scrappy when he needs to. The song is almost aware that it’s a country song, referencing other country artists and themes within the country genre.
4. Billy Ray Cyrus - Redneck Heaven
Released on his 1994 album Storm in the Heartland, Billy Ray’s “Redneck Heaven” is a song about wanting to be with your southern friends when you die. “Take me to redneck heaven / When I’m dead and gone / Where my southern roots are buried / the Bandstand still lives on.” Billy Ray meets some of his country idols in heaven, including the great one Elvis Presley.
5. The Bellamy Brothers - Redneck Girl
If you haven’t heard the original version of “Redneck Girl” by The Bellamy Brothers, maybe you heard Blake Shelton’s cover on the soundtrack for The Dukes of Hazzard: The Beginning. As the title suggests, the song is about wanting to meet the perfect redneck girl.
6. Cledus T. Judd - Redneck on the Internet
“Redneck on the Internet” is a hilarious song that tells the story of the first redneck to actually use the internet. Given that Cledus T. Judd is considered the Weird Al of country music, you can safely assume that this song is funny as heck (trust us, it is.)
7. Joe Diffie - Leroy the Redneck Reindeer
Released on his 1995 Christmas album called Mr. Christmas, “Leroy the Redneck Reindeer” is a funny take on the classic Christmas song “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer.” It might seem out of place to listen to it when it’s not Christmas, but check it out at least once (it’s worth it!)
8. George Strait - You Sure Got This Ol’ Redneck Feelin’ Blue
Leave it to George Strait to have you feeling cripplingly depressed after listening to his songs. “You Sure Got This Ol’ Redneck Feelin’ Blue” from his 1985 album Something Special is a classic tale of a hardened man who just can’t get over losing his woman. “Oh, I recall some barroom brawls / That I got myself into / Just a stich or two got me back together / But what it takes to ease the ache / That came with losing you.”
9. Jerry Jeff Walker - Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother
How do you not love this song? It was originally written by Ray Wylie Hubbard, but the song was made famous in 1973 by Jerry Jeff Walker. The song is ridiculously fun to sing along to, and tells the story of a man who was raised right by his redneck mother.
10. Brooks and Dunn - Redneck Rhythm & Blues
From their 1996 album Borderline, Redneck Rhythm & Blues is an up tempo tune about the struggles of being a working man who doesn’t make a lot of money.by
