I have no dog in the fight, but I'm also curious as to what you experienced (or didn't) in Nashville that caused you to arrive at that conclusion. I'm not asking for a dissertation, but just an example or two. I'd hope that it wouldn't be something like "Nashville is redneck ******-tonkville and Richmond isn't."

You answered nothing, you gave no examples, you provided no facts. The only thing you did was restate a claim. Repeating a previous statement doesn't equal an explanation.

Birmingham's biggest dilemma is it's proximity to Nashville, Atlanta and Charlotte. Major companies consider the location or relocation of facilities based on the amount of available workforce, ease of recruitment, proximity of a major airport, quality universities etc.. Atlanta checks in on almost every category. The city also has plenty of room to grow within an extremely business friendly state. Charlotte and Nashville are not far behind. It's a challenging hill to climb for Birmingham.

Jacksonville has the best chance to develop into a major hub, IMO.

Atlanta, Miami, Houston, and Dallas are today's hub. Nothing against Birmingham. I love the food and culture from there. But the big four is running the south now.
