Kentucky Country Singer Sets the Record Straight About Trailer Home Hate
While I didn't grow up living in a trailer, my husband did. I can remember the first time someone used the term "trailer trash" around him, he got SO mad. He's the most laid-back human on planet Earth, but when you poke the bear...watch out! None of us choose the situations we are born into, but we can choose how we treat people.
It should go without saying that a person's economic status has nothing to do with their inherent value. Neither does where a person lives. So the concept of looking down on someone who lives in a single wide needs to be kicked to the curb and all the way down the road. According to the most recent Census, approximately 22 million people live in manufactured homes, with trends on the rise.
Country singer, Chase McDaniel, replied to a dumb sarcastic comment on a recent TikTok video of his and shut down the haters in a perfect way. See, he is from a little town (population approx. 2,195) called Greensburg, Kentucky, just west of Elizabethtown, and was raised in a mobile home.
Overcoming adversity through hard work, determination, and a loyal support system, Chase is a graduate of the University of Louisville currently touring the United States singing and making music. Signed to Big Machine Records/Big Machine Label Group alongside legendary artists too many to name. Living his dream.
He mentions being made fun of as a kid by a young girl who didn't know any better but wants any adults still judging folks for their circumstances to know that he makes music for EVERYONE. ESPECIALLY people who live in single-wide trailers.
From one Louisville Cardinal to another, "Get 'em Chase!"
