There are a lot of "variations" of country. You don't need to fit one stereotype (or any at all) to be country.
Most of the people I went to high school with, and current friends, would likely fall into a mix of the western/southern category. Now, we don't live in the deep south, but every time I see that stereotype I'm thinking "yup, that's us". I grew up with a lot of farm kids, farm kids who worked on weekends and after school on the family farm, and spend summers in the hay fields. There's a lot of 4H kids around here. Tons of hunting and fishing. That being said, the majority of people I hang around spend their weekends mudding/off roading/quadding. For the most part, we've all got old beater trucks all decked out for mudding purposes. In the summer after mudding we like to sit around bonfires and have a couple beer.
I grew up with a lot of horse kids. I myself ride english and western. I love the bling and barrel racing. I also love the traditional hunters. I've got one mare who totally suits the bling and flashy colors and going fast, my other mare suits navy and white and that's about it
Country is what you make of it =)
