So here it goes. Im a MN native currently studying at the University of Minnesota. I chose here because I liked the size of the city and it was convenient being in-state, but after being here a while Ive haven't found the types of friends that I would like to have. I have been scouring this site for info because I want out so bad and I feel like it will be better to move during college so I don't have to move somewhere and set up a new network for myself when I am looking for a legitimate job after graduation. I was born and raised on a farm, but I love the opportunities that are in the bigger cities I just don't buy into the big diversity push and liberal agenda, along with the common mindset of the people up here in MN.

So here is ideally what I would like to find:

-I would really like a place where I could find other musicians to party and play and write songs with. Ive considered Nashville but I don't want to be lumped in with the droves of people going to try to get famous. I just really want to be around people who like the good old style country music along with some bluegrass.

-This kinda goes along with the first thing but I would like to be in a place where live music(specifically country) is more popular than the dance club scene.

-Weather isn't too big of an issue, MN is basically the worst cold and the worst hot and humid as it gets so I'd be up for anything else.

-A place that has a good college would also be a good thing, one with a good balance of partying and academics.

-As far as people go I like easy going people who can genuinely enjoy life. Im politically conservative. Im pretty cultured and educated, however I don't expect to be in a place where everyone else is. A big plus would be a place where girls wouldn't scoff at my boots and my love for trucks, dogs, and fishing.

-Ultimately I would like to be in a smaller town in the south but I understand that at this point in my life the city is probably where ill be best off.

Any help would be very much appreciated!!

You should look into Austin, TX. Although the summers are brutal....

Is Kentucky too far north for you? Because Lexington fits part of what you're looking for. St. Louis is also good.

It probably fits as well and the University of Tennessee is there. So, it might be a good fit for you.

I would definitely consider Kentucky. Ive been through there once and thought it was really nice based on the few hours I spent there, just haven't heard a lot about it beyond that.
