What happens when a guy with a book to sell meets up with a BBC audience eager to learn more about these people called rednecks. Next we’ll be having Jeff Foxworthy appearing before the House of Commons to dispense some folksy foreign policy advice.

The British are endlessly fascinated with pockets of American culture that to them are definitively American. Country Music, Rednecks, hyper-Gun culture, Westerns and soap operas are big Americophile business over there.

Which is why Americana artists and over-the-hill country acts can make a fortune over there. And why Jason Ringenberg had to write “Rebel Flag in Germany.”
