Upchurch, formally Ryan Upchurch, is an American singer, songwriter, and comedian from Tennessee. He began his career in the entertainment industry as a comedian, before moving into rapping and country music. Upchurch is now considered a “country rapper”, and his comedic and unique nature has led him to great success.
Ryan Upchurch is originally from Cheatham County, Tennessee, and currently lives in East Nashville. He has posted a few moving videos on his YouTube channel throughout the years, but he hasn’t moved far from his hometown.
Upchurch has a net worth of around $4 million, although his yearly salary isn’t actually all that much for the entertainment industry. His approach to entertainment is different than many others and is a performer for a variety of genres.
Ryan Upchurch’s Approach & Career
Ryan Upchurch was born in 1991 in Cheatham Country, Tennessee. He was raised by a middle-class family, and although not much is known about his family or upbringing, he apparently found his love for comedy through his life’s many obstacles.
He started creating music and coming up with comedic skits pretty young in order to get through some of the downfalls in his life from family problems, relationships, and just some of the drama that comes with being a kid.
He originally found himself being interested in cars, and it is still apparent to this day. His major interest in cars is shown on his Instagram, as well as his YouTube channel.
He started a YouTube channel with his friend Shade Glover and they called it, “Upchurch the Redneck with his friend Shade Glover”. On their channel, they started sharing comedic content and entertained viewers through different skits they brought to life.
In 2014, Ryan Upchurch decided that he wanted to dive headfirst into a career in music. He began to upload his music on various social media platforms and started gaining more and more popularity.
In 2015, Upchurch decided to go further and started expanding his music into the rap, rock, and comedy genres.
He also released his debut album later that year called, “Heart of America”. The album made the Billboard Top 300 Country Albums chart, which took him by surprise.
The album ended up getting a lot of good feedback and a huge number of listens. His second album, “Chicken Willie” was released in 2016, and just like his first album, this album also made it onto the Billboard Top Country Album chart, as well as the Rap Albums chart.
Since then, he has also released more music such as “Summer Love”, “King of Dixie”, “Raise Hell & Eat Cornbread, “Supernatural” and “Son of the South”.
It seems as though the artist gained a ton of popularity in the first two years of him trying it out in the music industry, and now has fans nationwide. Ryan Upchurch currently has 1.7 million followers on Instagram, and still performs live shows.
Upchurch’s House in Tennessee
The artist has been able to create a unique sound, fusing the rap genre and country genre together. Because of this, he is able to stand out from other artists in the industry.
Ryan Upchurch seems to have two main portals for his earnings- his YouTube channel, which has millions of subscribers, along with his performances and album cuts. Because of this, it has been estimated that his net worth is somewhere around $4 million.
For a more lowkey performer in Tennessee instead of Los Angeles, that definitely is a hefty net worth to be proud of. Although he has made it further along in the music industry than other upcoming artists, he has chosen to stick to his roots and remain in Tennessee.
Ryan Upchurch currently lives in the outskirts of Nashville, Tennessee. Judging from his YouTube channel, he has seemed to move a few times throughout the years, although it never has been far away from his roots.
He uploaded a video on his YouTube channel called “Upchurch The Rednecks House” in 2017, where he shares his opinions on money and how he doesn’t really care much about it, along with the home he first purchased himself.
In 2018, he uploaded another video to YouTube called “I bought & moved to “Ghost Ranch” where he discusses some of the obstacles he had to overcome at the beginning of his career and how he was able to purchase another home.
In September of 2020, he uploaded another video called “I’m Moving” where he updated his fans on moving homes once again in Tennessee and working on another album.
