OK, so you might be a redneck if your breakout country music hit is “Redneck Crazy.”

And Tyler Farr owns that.

“I get it. I’m the stereotypical redneck,” he tells ABC News Radio.

“I drive a truck and have a bloodhound. Those are the only two things I own. So, that’s pretty stereotypical. I live out in the country. What you see is what you get.”

Well, not exactly, actually. Tyler says if you get his debut album, Redneck Crazy, out now, you might see some musical influences beyond his favorites, George Jones and Hank Williams Jr.

“But I like rap. I like Brian McKnight. I’ve listened to Keith Sweat,” Tyler admits.

“My mom has broken a Bone Thugs-n-Harmony CD in my bedroom when she caught me listening to it when I was 16.”
