But NC isn't the birthplace/industry center of any major genre, like TN is for blues, rock n' roll, and country. Personally, I don't think there's any comparison between the two when it comes to this. I mean at this point, those genres have had substantial footholds in TN for several decades, more than a century in the case of the blues.

LOL this seems very interesting! You know as far as the North Carolina part you are kind of right but it all depends on what part of North Carolina you're in because trust me .. not all is like Western North Carolnia!! Trust me!! around some Piedmont cities and towns, I've seen some of the most backward people I've ever met.. and not towards me, I mean towards their own people!!! and on top of that you are right about the proximity to other cities in the Northeast but so is Texas also closer to New Orleans, St. Louis, the beautiful state of Arkansas, cites in Arizona like Phoenix, and Tuscon, . . even Las Vegas and Los Angeles can be traveled by car but by plane it's only about 2 hours away.

Wow where did you learn about Texas? I live here and I love it..I'm a native Californian and I must say, Texas has more biodiversity than North Carolina regardless of Western NC.
flat????? Where did you think it was flat? My god when I was in Fayetteville, NC that's a flat @ss city right there!!! and talk about dusty it gets pretty humid and not much of a difference than Texas with exceptions of cooler climate in the Western part of the state..
Texas has mountains and deserts to the West and the Hill country is very hilly and few small mountain peaks do rise near 3,000 ft compared to West Texas of near 9,000 ft .. Guadalupe Peak is 8,751 Ft high ... taller than Mt. Mitchell.. so learn your geography better please!!
and East Texas has probably just as lush and even more lush I kid you not as North Carolina with Fresh Pines of Pines/oaks. Western NC I say that only barely above 5,000 is where youll find a few firs and that's hardly noticeable unless you're in a Xmas Tree Farm .............

This thread is old but I'd have to chose TX any day over NC. I'm sure its probably because I live in a smaller town (Fayetteville), so I'd probably have a different opinion if I lived in Cary, Durham, or Raleigh. There's much more to do in those cities but even if I could live in the aforementioned cities, I'd still pick TX (namely the Dallas/Ft. Worth area).

NC is as much a birthplace for blues as TN, as well as a dozen other states. It's also one of the states that can claim credit for doowop. Neither state can claim to be the birthplace of country. IIRC, that dishonor belongs to Georgia.

Well the Piedmont form of blues can partially be claimed by NC, but it never really had a presence anywhere in the state like the Delta blues have in Memphis and environs. Just Google "birthplace of the blues" and it's easy enough to see where the genre truly coalesced.

I'm from Texas and spent two years in North Carolina. If I had to choose again, I would go to Texas. NC doesn't have the same intense state pride as Texas. I'm quite partial to Texas BBQ, Dallas Cowboys, San Antonio Spurs, NASA, and Texas Hold'em Poker! I'll take the Texas hill country and bluebonnets, Palo Duro Canyon, Frio River tubing, Houston Rodeo, TexMex, Blue Bell Ice Cream and two-steppin' honky tonk cowboys any day!

I lived in NC & TX. Hands down TX wins. People in NC are racist & they donít like or accept gay people.
