Nowadays you see all the advertisement clothing like John Deere, Browning stickers, people wearing major camo, big knee high wader looking boots and makes ya wonder how many of these people have even stepped foot out in the woods let alone shot a rifle/shotgun or ever been near a farm lol. I think its become "cool" to wear camo and other hunting clothing, at least here in Georgia I've noticed.
I agree with both of you, nowadays the "country" label is overblown. Im twenty, and have one set of really old boots and a bunch of old ratty jeans but I only wear those for work. To go out in public I have nice boots jeans and shirts, but the funny thing is that my style doesn't fit in with the people who think they are "country." Very few people understand! I think it is ridiculous, I had friends that wore camo to prom in high school!

So to the OP I would say that the "good ol boys" are scattered around and would take some looking for because they are mixed in with a lot of country trash.

i highly disagree there are cows and horses in san antonio and austin and even a few donkeys in both cities. and there plenty of cowboys especially on the outskirts

Greenville, SC without a doubt. Located in the foothills of Appalachia, a very status quo lil town with tons of rednecks, and those who didn't quite care for your diverse background. Lots of confederate flags in the area, on trucks, in yards, college dorms, etc... I couldn't wait to leave. Ironically even the "educated" people were "less than impressive", shall I say.
