Upchurch’s Early Life
Pegram, Tennessee was the location where Ryan Upchurch’s birth took place on May 24th, 1991.
For the purpose of providing entertainment for himself and his friends, Upchurch conceived of the comedic persona of Upchurch the Redneck, who satirized common perceptions of young men living in the Deep South.
In 2014, Upchurch began collaborating with his friends to produce videos in which he represented the role of Upchurch the Redneck and displayed his abilities as a rapper. These videos were uploaded on YouTube.
Upchurch and his friend Shade Glover came up with the character of Upchurch the Redneck and started uploading films to YouTube under that name. In 2015, he published an extended play titled Cheatham County, and the following year, in 2016, he released a full-length album titled ‘Heart of America.’

Upchurch’s Favourite Quotes
“I messed around with it a little bit in high school, but I didn’t really take it seriously. It was that time when a lot of rappers were coming out and every kid wanted to be a rapper. Then I dropped it and I ended up doing construction work and I did not finish high school. I got out and did not know what I really wanted to.” – Upchurch
“They told me that without a record label you will not get far. I told them that it is not true because I have made it to number many times and make it to the 10 just about every time I release a song. I think now I am not being approached because they think I don’t need them.” – Upchurch
“In a few years, I see myself, well, to be honest, it is hard to say. Right now, I am doing some acting and filming. I am actually getting into more of the acting part. I like to branch out a lot.” – Upchurch
“The whole industry is scared of me because I have really loose lips and I always say what I want to say. So, if anyone is reading this “I’m not going to mess your Red Carpet up, I might get a little dirt on but that is about it.” – Upchurch
