I don't know really where to post this so i hope here is fine. What do people from Tennessee, Kentucky, the western part of North Carolina and the northern parts of Alabama and Georgia consider themselves? Like are you southern, country, mid atlantic, midwestern etc.? I just want to know what the classification of these fine folks would be because they are my favorite type of people. Thanks.

I can only speak for myself, and I can tell you what I hear...

Americans first.

As someone who lives on the border with Alabama, we also have no trouble in (accurately) considering ourselves Southerners. That's what most of the natives in my area consider themselves, and would be surprised otherwise!

We're our favorite type of people as well...thank you!

Generally speaking, any place south of the Mason-Dixon line would be considered Southern.

I was born and raised in Maryland, have lived in Virginia, Texas and in Tennessee for 14 years and yet some still call me a Yankee. Something with my accent isn't quite right, I guess.

I consider us Southern Appalachians.

Southern first, but yes, Appalachian, also. I'm a transplant from New England but I came home as soon as I could.
