A very good place for anyone looking for a good education and a good laugh at the same time. Here are some tips to Northerners before you move here:

1: The food is called grits, notice the s, the food is not a grit, it is called grits
2: If you see girls saying "like" every other word, it is prefectly normal
3: If you are over age 10, female, and you like Hannah Montana/ Miley Cyrus stay away from Tennessee
4: Y'all is in the dictionary, get over it
5: 3/4 of the female population in Tennessee is "girly-girl"
so if you came to Tennessee to meet a "tomboy", good luck with that
6: Weather is unpredictable. It snows in April and is over 105 degrees F in October
7: In martial arts, there is almost no karate schools or other martial arts except for Tae kwon Do, you will find about 50 of those
8: There is a McDonalds in almost every town yet barely anybody is overweight
9: "I don't give a crap is just another way of saying, "I didn't much sleep last night"
10: Lastly, if you think you can just move here and be country then you obviously don't know a thing
Random woman at shoneys (northerner): excuse me, is this a grit?
Me (from Tennessee): yes ma'am that is the gritsssssss
Random woman: So that is a grit?
Me: yes ma'am that is the gritsssssss
Random woman: Thank you for showing me what a grit is
Me: -_- no problem

The Volunteer State. A picturesque state of the southeastern U.S. between the Mississippi River and Appalachain Mountains. One of those hillbilly states of the Bible Belt where cousins kiss, siblings intermarry and people eat roadkill. Most of Tennessee's 6 million people (ranks 16th in population) are probably rednecks but friendly nonetheless. Memphis is the largest city and Nashville is the capital.

Despite the state's reputation as a place of hillbillies, Tennessee is actually pretty cool to live in--certainly much better then Kentucky, Arkansas, Mississippi, Alabama or West Virginia. The roads are pretty good and not nearlly as many as in the Midwest. A good thing about Tennesse, unlike most states, is that it has, not just one, but TWO large cities: Memphis (650,000) and Nashville (570,000). Both have metro populations that exceed one-million people. Memphis is the largest city and is a river town and the home of Elvis's Graceland Mansion. It is also a center for jazz music and has lots of bars. Nashville, the capital is the unofficial "country music capital" of America and know as "Music City, USA." Nashville is the leading center for the recording of Country/Western and Southern Gospel music. The Grand Ole Opry is in Nashville. Interestingly, Nashville, above all places, will soon have the tallest building in the U.S. outside NY and Chicago. I have no idea why. Knoxville, the 3rd largest city, is a cool college town and home to the University of Tennessee Volunteers. Tennessee has a lot of opportunities to get out and enjoy nature. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the state's largest tourist attraction. Skiing is popular in the mountains during the winter.

Tennesee's elevation increases from west to east. The lowest point is near Memphis along the Mississippi River and the highest point is near Klingman's Dome near the North Carolina border.

Tennssee has a diverse economy. Services and healthcare, and not country music production, is the largest economic activity in the Nashville area. Memphis is a major center for transportation and trade, thanks to Fed Ex and operates a domestic hub for Northwest Airlines, for some reason. The state's largest manufacturing activity is the assembly of transportation equipment. Nissan and GM operate large plants in the state. Tobacco is the largest cash crop.
If I had to live in the south, I would live in Tennessee. It's also a good place to visit.
