Product Description:

Hosted by Billy Ray Cyrus, this program profiles so-called Appalachian "hillbillies" from musicians to war veterans. Rejecting stereotypes, HILLBILLY reveals their little-known contributions to American history and society.

Description by A&E Home Video:

Hillbillies gave America its most popular spectator sport: NASCAR.
The label "hillbilly" may date to 17th Century Ireland.
This feature-length documentary celebrates a unique facet of America's melting pot.
As this wide-ranging documentary makes clear, the disparaging label "hillbilly" should actually be worn with pride.
Join host Billy Ray Cyrus on a journey into the hollers and runs of Appalachia to discover the proud legacy of the region's mountain folk. Learn how hillbillies, long misunderstood and maligned as isolated and backward, actually have a 300-year history of achievement and success that has contributed significantly to our national identity.
In this two-hour special you'll meet outcast immigrants, war heroes, isolated backwoodsmen, hard working miners, fast moving moon shiners, religious warriors, musicians and statesmen. You'll learn of their contributions, which include establishing the first labor unions, battling the British, and spawning some of the most popular aspects of American culture today, like NASCAR and country music. And you'll see them in a whole new light.
Consider this remarkable program, HILLBILLY: THE REAL STORY, a deliverance from our preconceptions and a celebration of a valuable feature of our American landscape.
