Had to consolidate the sig.
ultra hick
I'm tempted to use it sometimes, but I stop myself because it does indeed sound a bit silly.

There was one time I was at work(I live in Nebraska, BTW) and for some odd reason, I said "Ya'll have a great dinner." And after I said this I looked down and was like, why the fuck did I say that.

No, I don't think it's hick. It's that damn accent.

Hell Yes.
Do you say Yall Alot?

no, but I have no problem with the word. lots of people say it.
I say ya'll in context.

Sort of ironically sometimes
"Ya'll come back now ya hear?".
I don't remember where I was,
When I realized life was a game.
The more seriously I took things,
The harder the rules became.
it dosn't sound bad if you don't have a strong accent, the accent is what makes it sound hick, and dragging it out too long. But yeah it's common throughout the south.
make Industrial and/or experimental electronic music? Join my group!
thats how I tell people are hicks

I live in mumbai, and it seems to be part of the dialect when people try to speak english.

EDIT: But in the US outside of Texas it sounds really hick.

I remember when I was really young, I had a wet dream in which i was being dragged along an urban countryside by a pickup truck.

Don't ask me I have no idea how the hell it happened.

I love you
its "y'all" not ya'll"
I and from Dallas, and yes it does sound hickly, but I say it anyways.
Its not like i say Yall on purpose. its just how everybody talks here. Just listen to a rock radio show from texas. they say yall like no tomorrow.

for ex: have yall seen muse in concert?

^^normal sentence.
I say ya'll a lot, and I live in Tennessee. It's common, but I don't have an increadibly thick accent, so i don't sound too hick.

DENTON TX RULES!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't know anyone from New Orleans who DOESN'T say it.....

But really, everyone in my family does so I couldn't stop if I tried hahah
No, to answer your question, people say y'all all the time in Kentucky. To answer your other question I guess It's a matter of opinon whether it makes you look like a hick
I'm from Georgia and I've heard it all my life, it's no big thing around here, but I still try not to say it.
If morning's a bitch with open arms, night's a girl who's gone too far.

i say it a lot, but i dont really think it sounds "hick" like. it depends on how strong your accent is.

No, never used over here. It is incredibly hick yes.
It's not uncommon in western Kansas. I avoid using it except for ironic purposes. I could say the same about "howdy."

Lol @ correcting an already retarded and annoying abbreviation.

Never hear it in Australia because we're not susceptable to such slang of a primitive nature.

It's definitely hick, they say it in Kentucky, Indiana, Florida, Texas, Arkansas, Louisiana...some of the biggest hick states...definitely a hick word.

you sound stupid. just say you guys in stead of y'all.

your example: "y'all seen muse in concert?"

my example: "you guys seen muse in concert?"
