2000s "before" 1995?
The 2000s Blue Collar Tour paragraph needs to be moved to follow, not precede, Foxworthy's 1995-99 TV show & standup comic worth. (Or else, indicate the out-of-chron.-order is present for humorus purposes... :') )

14 million copies
I would like to see the editor who claimed Foxworthy's album "you might be a redneck if" provide a reliable source for this claim (I have removed the edit). I highly doubt that it sold 14 million, the same as world-wide major pop albums. Foxworthys album was not a major hit outside North America (in Europe it only had resonable sales in the thousands) and it certianly wasn't sitting at #1 in the charts for weeks on end selling like Garth Brooks!. 22.214.171.124 12:15, 23 June 2006 (UTC)
It looks like the person who added that statistic got a bit confused about a claim that Jeff Foxworthy's *total* album sales have topped 15 million copies. I don't have any verification of that fact, but I have seen it mentioned quite a bit.
As for sales of "You Might Be A Redneck If..." specifically, I've seen many places claim it has sold 4 million copies but haven't been able to lock a good source on that. However, the RIAA's website lists it as being certified triple platinum, so that statistic at the very least is good for the main article.126.96.36.199 19:04, 4 August 2006 (UTC)
Sub-categories tag removed
I added sub-categories to this article (and made some other minor improvements); after assessing, I removed the tag. ProfessorPaul 03:49, 9 March 2007 (UTC)
I was going to change the current works section and do a new subsection on his books as there are Lots of his books missing from this page. Anyone have comments/suggestions? Geoff 10 March 2008 —Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk) 17:01, 10 March 2008 (UTC)
Birthname: Foxworthy or Fox?
Jeff's Blueprint (Georgia Tech yearbook) picture is labeled Fox. Is this his birth name or an error? If Fox is his birth name, then the names of his parents are probably wrong. 184.108.40.206 (talk) 17:51, 30 April 2009 (UTC)
Should be mentioned that he has the most album sales of any comedian ever
I'd just like it mentioned, in the summary, that foxworthy is the best selling comedian of all time as far as album sales go -- according to Forbes. I have already had the claim removed from Weird Al Yankovichs site, since foxworthy has outsold him by 3-4 million copies, on far, far, far fewer albums. So, now that it's removed from Weird Al, it should be added to the rightful owner of the title. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 220.127.116.11 (talk) 17:00, 3 February 2011 (UTC)
Jeff Foxworthy Protestant?
I know that Jeff Foxworthy is a devote Christian and is a host for The American Bible Challenge and was best known for hosting Are You Smarter Than A Fifth Grader? but I am not sure if he's Protestant. I don't know whether if he is protestant or not. Doesn't make any sense to me. Ashbeckjonathan 23:01, 19 May 2013 (UTC)
- I have removed the category since it is not mentioned (with source) in the article. --Musdan77 (talk) 04:31, 20 May 2013 (UTC)
