A seriously bad ass state. The people here are fucking hot, and the only rednecks live in Memphis, which everyone avoids anyway. If you hate on it you've probably never even been here before, or you're a whiny, sexually confused, and *completely* misunderstood 16-year-old that wants to be a painter when you grow up. This state is infinitely better than every other southern state, and is also the birthplace of Arnold Swarzeniggerface, Quentin Tarantino, Johnny Cash, and Elvis Presley, among many others. A metric shit ton of awesome bands have come from here and most of them are probably better than 95% of the other musicians out there right now.
Some unfunny nigger on this generally unfunny website called Urban Dictionary claiming to be from Tennessee made a list exploiting his or her homosexuality under the disguise of a list about things to know if you're going to Tennessee. Please note that everything about said list is similar to, if not completely engulfed in, the substance that exits a bull's colon and then proceeds to flow from its anus.

Things you Should Know Abot TN Before Moving Here (for Northerners):
1.What sweet tea(tea with sugar) amd sweet milk (not buttermilk) are.
2.Memphis is Detroit with a Southern accent.
3.No snowdays. Just "ice on the road" days. If the temp goes below 25F, we think a new Ice Age is upon us.
4.110 F is "a tad warm".
5. "Kiss my ass" is a perfectly acceptable way to end an argument.
6. Saying "Bless her/his heart" before you insult someone will safely allow you to drag them through the mud.
7.Toast is unnatural. Eat biscuits like God meant you to.
8. Flirtin' is Southern tradition. It doesn't mean you're getting lucky.
9. If you try to speak with our accent, remember draw out your vowels, y'all is two or more people, and y'all's is plural possessive. Don't blame me if you get an ass-whoopin'.
10. If you don't like it down here, the airline goes both ways.
All my exes live in Texas that's why I reside with pride in Tennessee

Tennessee is a wonderful state overall. Everything about it is nice. The people are very friendly. There is no one I know of that wouldn't be glad to help you out with something, like give you driving directions perhaps. Also, the state is beautiful, and has many breathtaking views that will keep you gazing for hours. Don't believe these other people that are not from Tennessee when they say anything negative. Most of it is not true, such as "we are uneducated." In fact, we have great school systems with teachers that actually teach many things that could be considered useful in life one day. Believe me..I am from Tennessee. Does this look written by an uneducated person? Here to defend the state in which I live in, and the best state of this country..the great state of Tennessee.
I am a Tennessean, and sure proud of it! Tennessee is one of the best states in this country!!

The most fantastic place in the world to live. If you live in the suburbs, you get great public schools, nice shopping, and those fantastic accents.
I miss my home. :(

I have lived in Tennessee since I was five. I am an educated individual who knows how to speak English correctly, without an accent. I attended one of the best public schools in the nation. And yes, it is located in Tennessee. I care about social justice issues. And I AM TENNESSEAN. As a Tennessean, I am sick and tired of the stereotypes of my great state. I am sick and tired of hearing that my friends and neighbors are rednecks with little intelligence. As a college student studying in the Northeast, someone recently told me that they were sorry I lived in Tennessee. Am I sorry? NO. These misconceptions about the state are formed by men and women who are themselves ignorant. Such ignorance reflects a lack of respect and real world education. Such ignorance perpetuates misunderstanding. Misunderstanding leads to greater global issues.
Instead, we should recognize Tennessee for its great contributions in ALL genres of music, for its beauty, and for its hospitality. We should respect it for its leading hospitals and for its historic value. This is Tennessee. Similarly, to curb the affects of ignorance we must recognize all states and nations for their great contributions as well.
From the ABC show Grey's Anatomy:
George: A southern accent doesn't make you stupid.

And neither does being from Tennessee.

Wish that I was on ole rocky top,
Down in the tennessee hills.
Ain’t no smoggy smoke on rocky top,
Ain’t no telephone bills.

Once there was a girl on rocky top,
Half bear the other half cat.
Wild as a mink, sweet as soda pop,
I still dream about that.

Rocky top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.

Once two strangers climbed on rocky top,
Lookin’ for a moonshine still.
Strangers ain’t come back from rocky top,
Guess they never will.

Corn won’t grow at all on rocky top,
Dirt’s too rocky by far.
That’s why all the folks on rocky top
Get their corn from a jar.

Rocky top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.

Now I’ve had years of cramped up city life,
Trapped like a duck in a pen.
Now all I know is it’s a pity life
Can’t be simple again.

Rocky top, you’ll always be
Home sweet home to me.
Good ole rocky top,
Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.

Rocky top tennessee, rocky top tennessee.
Yeah rocky top tennesee eee eee eee.
Tennessee has the reddest rednecks in the world! Myself included!
