Video: Liberal Redneck | Progress in Rural America

There’s votes to be had, ya’ll.

Trae Crowder (born 1986) is an American comedian and co-author of The Liberal Redneck Manifesto: Draggin’ Dixie Outta the Dark. Crowder grew up in rural Celina, Tennessee, near the Tennessee/Kentucky border. He was the first person in his family to graduate from college. He holds an MBA. In 2010, he moved to the Knoxville, Tennessee, area with his wife, Katie, and their two young sons. In a 2016 interview, Crowder attributed his liberal political views to the “abject poverty” of his family during his childhood. Another major influence on his progressive social beliefs, he claimed, was his close relationship with his gay uncle.
