I'd vote for more than one....they are just different in their meaning. Louisiana, Mississippi, and Alabama are very country in the southern sense. Western Tennessee, Eastern & Southern Arkansas, and parts of Georgia are also very country in a similar, but not so similar sense. Oklahoma, and Texas are full of the huge ranches, and "Cowboys" not so much rednecks other than much of East Texas. The DFW area has alot of the rich and flashy oil types of country folks, and many who actually don't have a clue what "country" is other than the yearly rodeo, a steak house, and music.

As far as the "most country" place in my opinion from my viewpoint of real country I'd say down here in South Texas and West Texas, specifically the area between Waco - El Paso - Amarillo - and down to Laredo. There are tons of ranchers with big wallets, and very old fashioned values. Lots of oil, hunting, 4x4 trucks, southern drawls, and cowboys.

I do think that the area between Little Rock, and Memphis is very country as well, and the area between Little Rock, and Tyler, but in more of a redneck country manner. Although northern you can never argue out Wyoming, and Nebraska. Also the Eastern part of Montana, down through the Dakotas, another area full of huge ranches, and people who are really country.

To me, that's not "country." It's "civilized."
JMHO!

Too many people don't understand that there is a difference between "southern" and "country"...those words are NOT interchangeable.

IMO, Mississippi is the most stereotypically country. Followed by Alabama, South Carolina, and Louisiana.

I grew up in Louisiana and Alabama.
