LOL! You don't have a Southern accent at all! I am a Southerner who has lived away from the South for a while so I have a watered down Southern accent. You don't even sound like I do. Not one trace of Southerness. All New York.

I play too much so I switch it up between British, Southern (various), Australian (Crocodile Hunter), Hispanic, & Proper American English all the time. Half the time I don't even notice because I did it so much that it's normal. I have to catch myself sometimes lol.

My natural accent is a mild NY accent, some neutral, with a dash of Southern-ish-ness. I also tend to use a lot of slang :/

Since he's from the South Boston area of Virginia, I'd say it's more of a drawl that many Virginians from the southwestern part of the state seem to have. I wouldn't call it Mid-Atlantic. But I like the drawl. I think it's cool. Probably one of my favorite accents.

Yea I always figured the accent was southern. Like I mentioned earlier I have a similar accent and when I go out of state people frequently make comments. I only put the midatlantic part because I have heard some people in this thread arguing that many people in Virginia and Kentucky don't have southern accents which I personally believe is crazy. lol

there are SOME people in those states that dont (mainly transplants), but then again there are plenty of people in NC, GA, TX, TN and pretty much every southern state that dont, especially in urban areas. the rural areas of all of these states (and the small towns and small cities as well) speak overwhelmingly with southern accents. there was really only one person who thought otherwise anyway. i wouldnt pay to close attention to it.
