The Southern States Appreciation Thread

Good ol' Dixie has taken some bashin' lately, particularly in the least favorite state thread. So if y'all are gettin' a little tired of that, y'all have come to the right place!

Let me start off by praisin' them beautiful Southern double names. If I ever get lucky enough to marry a Southern belle and we are blessed with a baby girl, we'll be sure to name her Ella Mae, Peggy Sue, Anna Claire, or Betty Jo. Find more tips here.

Movin' on to the Southern accents - have y'all heard anyone speak with a prettier accent than this gal from North Carolina?



Or maybe y'all prefer the deep southern accent?



I'm fixin' to do some shoppin', so I'll leave it at this for now. If y'all have more videos, articles, pictures or anything else about the South (and I mean good things, of course!), please post them here!

Well, the south did give us Southern Hip Hop and its subgenres like Memphis Rap, Chopped and Screwed and Dirty South. I guess I appreciate them for that.
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

I've give them applauds for the creation of jazz and blues.

Sheriff J W Pepper in the James Bond films and Deputy Dawg represent my earliest southern accent memories :lol:

Alright, I'll give you Hank Williams and the "outlaw" guys but I dislike all the rest of country.

Bluegrass can be good.

Actually I'm rather fascinated by a few bayou states like Louissiana and Mississippi, - some of their music, culture and cuisine (e.g. Creoles and Cajuns) is really interesting. It's not all rednecks and meth...

Blues is nothing more than West African folk music. Guess how that came to America? :whistling:

Lexington/Louisville really don't count.. They are basically on the Ohio River. Besides, Cincinnati claims Clooney ;) (His father, Nick was a news presenter here for a very long time. He's more Cincinnati than he is "South.")

It could be argued that it did, as it pretty much evolved from Blues and Jazz music, anyhow. (Although those genres have a convoluted history as well.)

i love the south but can't handle the humidity anymore. i don't like too many people around so i live in a small mountain town in the southwest now. most people have guns but when someone gets shot there's generally a reason... everyone is pretty laidback and individualistic. you can do your own thing as long as you're not bothering anyone. eccentricities are well tolerated :D

i will say that pre-internet it was pretty rough for intellectual stimulation

Image

yes it's pretty hot right now but we even get snow sometimes in winter :wub: i lived in georgia and the carolinas as a kid and i miss the sea sometimes but if i left i'm sure i'd miss the desert now too. OH! i don't love florida. it's not really the south :yucky:

I done took this post from my country music thread, but I wanted to say to y'all that this was a fine movie. It takes place in the heart of Dixie and really has that country feel. Makes me wanna go and git into a Cadillac and start drivin' along some country roads. And if you need to practice your Southern accent, listen to Elayne Heilveil (one of the main characters). :cowbow:
