I lived in NC , SC and Georgia during my military career, been to every southern state many times and Ft Worth is the west. It's where the 1800's wild west really started when the city became the main center of the ranching industry and cattle drives. And the terrain isn't filled with pine trees.

oh, so pine trees = the south

that might be true for the southeast, but not all of the south. yes, fort worth does have the "wild west" characteristics, but it is still part of the south. it isn't one monolithic region

No it isn't. Cowboys. Cattle. Ranches. Indians that actually fought. West.

I lived in Columbia for three years and in Marlboro county for awhile. It is the south (I did love SC). Ft Worth isn't.

An opinion is all anyone has. And according to the poll twice as many think Cowtown and cattle country is the west haha. I don't think it's ever been called Cottontown.

most official definitions include fort worth as part of the south. the city is a gateway to the american west, but it's not "the west" as in denver, salt lake city, cheyenne, etc. native fort worthians speak with a southern twang/drawl, it's part of the bible belt, there were slaves in fort worth, etc....it sits on the western edge of the south

i don't know why people think the south has to be the solid, monolithic region that can't have it's own distinct culture

fort worth is definitely a part of the south
