And you didn't even read the rest of my post.
Nice link that bolsters the argument that the next "name a large southern city here" is Raleigh.

Richmond is more cultured, its a fact not intended to bash Nashville.


Don't live in either place so have no allegiances. I have visited both and lets put it this way, Richmond is East Coast and Nashville is Mid South.....take that where you will.....
So basically it is your opinion that Richmond is more cultured.

What exactly is your experience with Nashville's culture? I mean, if you've determined that Nashvillians aren't enlightened and can't think outside the box, I'd love to know exactly what led you to that conclusion. Because all it really sounds like is a snooty put down.

Raleigh/Durham is already in the same league as Charlotte, Nashville, and Atlanta. Those are the big four "New South" metros, with the exception of peripheral cities like Dallas/Ft. Worth and Orlando.

If you are going to discuss only the highlighted portion, then you're missing the whole message.

And in terms of municipal population, Jacksonville already has a larger population than any other city in that South, if talking about municipality alone.
Municipal population means nothing here, as we are obviously talking about metro areas; otherwise, we'd be asking who's next to catch up to Jacksonville. That's the point you seem to be missing.

Yes that's my opinion, basically.....

What exactly is your experience with Nashville's culture? I mean, if you've determined that Nashvillians aren't enlightened and can't think outside the box, I'd love to know exactly what led you to that conclusion. Because all it really sounds like is a snooty put down.
Visiting the Nashville metro on three different occasions is EXACTLY what led me to the conclusion that Richmond is more cultured.
Again, it's not bashing or a "snooty put down", just the way I see it.....

You never answered the questions posed by Nashvols, just restated a substance-absent opinion.

I did answer the questions, no need to write a dissertation....Richmond is an East Coast institution, Nashville is a Mid South Music Mecca...take a little trip with no preconceptions like I did between the two areas You're a citizen of the Nashville metro so I would expect a bit of defensiveness. Opinions are opinions, everyone has one, if you judge my opinion to be substance free then guess what, that's your opinion.
Richmond is more cultured than Nashville IN MY OPINION.....substance absent or not.

Why has Nashville become such a New South mecca as opposed to Richmond, then? Compared to Northern Virginia, and even the Hampton Roads, it seems like Richmond has been flying under the radar for quite some time. Don't get me wrong, I like Richmond, but I've often wondered why it isn't more like Northern Virginia, Raleigh/Durham, Nashville, Atlanta, etc.
