Hey, y’all! It is both an honor and a privilege to introduce you to my new website: Unabashedly Southern. The Unabashedly Southern Blog is a Kentucky-based southern, preppy lifestyle resource. It’s for those that believe in upholding timeless, classic traditions. It’s for those that love entertaining, leading a life worthy of respect, making each day a good day, and for those that are proud of their southern heritage.
It is my goal to invoke these very notions in my future posts here on Unabashedly Southern. A sister blog to JCP Eats, this will be a more personal, intimate glimpse into my life – and I do hope that y’all will enjoy the ride! For those that have been with me for years (I hit post on my first blog post almost thirteen years ago!), this blog will be very reminiscent of years past.
Who Is The Man Behind Unabashedly Southern?
My name is JC Phelps — and above all else, I am a Kentuckian. I was raised on a farm in Southern Kentucky that has been in my family since 1798. I graduated from Centre College in 2016 with a BS in Economics and Finance and from Western Kentucky University in 2017 with an MBA. Currently, I work as a consultant + a full-time blogger. It’s time-consuming to have two jobs, sure, but each day I have the privilege of doing what I love.
Fun Facts About JC
In my personal life, I am an avid antique shopping, golfer, and foodie. I love classic rock, country music, and any excuse to be on a boat. I’m also a Parrothead, a rookie bridge player, and Diet Coke’s #1 fan. To say the least, I’m an eclectic person that has always marched to the beat of my own drum.
