Interesting, Philly got a country ding on Barbeque so can live with that

Not sure what to make of this, is country really a bad thing per-se

More just some regional differences on the whole

One of the few times we're #1 in something and... I'm not too sure how to feel about that one.

So Miami which is known for fishing by the Atlantic, within the various canals, and a skip and a hop away from the Everglades is 41 in fishing while places like Albuquerque is 21. lol

Chicago might have something to say about that.

One thing I loved about Chicago was that it never tried to be anything it wasnt. Chicago is a world class, international city. However, its also a Middle America, Midwestern, truly American city. It never triend to deny any of that about itself.

The list actually looks pretty accurate to me, though I think Atlanta is more country that the list makes it to be. I actually mean that in a good way.

Either way, I dont think being country is a bad thing. Different strokes for different folks.

The metro area has a number of country music fans in it. The city is a little different. I can only think of 2 or 3 country bars in the entire city to be honest with you. One of them is interesting as it's a huge sports bar but in the back it's a music venue mainly doing country shows. I actually went to one, once as I have a friend who is very cosmopolitan but for some reason loves the music. When I went, I heard peoples' conversations and most were from the suburbs. I can count only two friends I have in town here that legitimately like country music. Everyone else I know and works with seem to have a negative opinion of the entire scene and music.

If this was metro area, I'd agree with the ranking. City should probably be higher though I'm not sure about bottom 5. Bottom 10 for sure though but the bottom 5 cities is definitely less "country" than Chicago is. Most people here hate country music and country **** really though but there are some fans in the city but few and far in between, but some of the suburban people are on average more fans of that.


In any case, I don't understand how each category was rated as they don't say any of their methodology.

The fishing ranking seems a little suspect, since Phoenix got 32nd, while Portland got 31st. People fish on not far from downtown Portland on the Willamette and just on the northern edge of the city on the Columbia and just to the south on the Clackamas River. And you'll see a lot of people fishing.

I don't know where one fishes around Phoenix, I guess they might have some artifical lakes with fish, but still...

On the other hand though this is obviously for core cities and not entire metros--otherwise Atlanta would've gotten a little higher ranking.
