There's a reason liberal cities like Detroit, San Francisco, Boston, etc, are losing people to conservative meccas in the south and southwest.
Atlanta is not a conservative city.I would say moderate to liberal if anything.

I know Chicago is a big blues city. But every time people hear Memphis and New Orleans, jazz and blues are immediately brought to mind.

As far as the live music I commented about not being available in the big cities, I guess its a rural thing that even big southern cities don't have. Besides the bon fires in the fields, I can remember a summer where ever weekend there was a huge barbeque, bon fire, and live music on a sandbar by the river. And I mean literally on the sand. You had to have a 4wd and drive through a long muddy road to get there. People from 5 different counties would show up. You just can't get that in the city.

I wouldn't mind seeing some blues in Chicago though. I've only been there for a week. I went last year on business. Had a great time, but definitely didn't have as much time to explore like I wanted. Had some pizza at Exchequers though. Good stuff!

Little Rock is conservative? I must have overlooked that somehow when I lived there.

Chicago is home to 'electric blues' which was originally brought to the city from the south (the acoustic and harmonica based Blues that Memphis and Mississippi are known for) and took on a different form which is known today as the specific blues music that Chicago is indeed home to.

Chess and Alligator Records were and are home to a lot artists like Bo Diddley, etc.

Atlanta is a very liberal city surrounded by more conservative suburbs. DeKalb County and the city of Decatur are also very liberal. However, counties like Cobb and Gwinnett tend to be a lot more conservative. Remember, Metro Atlanta has spawned both Cynthia McKinney and Newt Gingrich. It doesn't get more divergent than that!

Fiscal Conservative great, I'm there !
I have no love for pushy religious zealots.
I have a deep respect for all spiritual people until
they try to push their views on others. Any town
that doest truly observe separation of church and state
tend to be control freaks. This is America baby with
the right to pursue liberty.

Chicago made the blues what it is. Not the south. You can have that nasty rockabilly- country and all that crap. Actually I was talking about Cheap Trick when I said Rich Musical History.

All I hear is that annoying twang with their drawl. I am not an elvis fan.

All I know about Mississippi is that MY people were there before other people were there. I personally never wanted to go back there.
