Tennessee is really too developed to be country, in my opinion. Most of the state lives in one of the bigger metropolitan areas.

Arkansas and Mississippi easily take the title.

Based on stereotyping (I'll a tleast admit to it, because I haven't been to the ones where I put based on stereotypes)

1. Mississippi (Stereotoype)
2. Alabama (Stereotype)
3. Tennessee (I've spent PLENTY of time in the Mountains of Eastern Tennessee)
4. Georgia (Take away Atlanta, and you don't have really have anything, I lived there)
4. South Carolina (Grew up here, sorry, but It ties with Georgia)
5. North Carolina (Outside of the large metro areas it's very much country, live here now)

In my mind, country states usually average less than 100 people per square mile, but there are higher density states that have rural parts (Western TN comes to mind. Outside of Memphis it is VERY country.) My home state of Missouri averages about 87 people per square mile, and most of the state is pretty dang country.

By population I'd have to say Mississippi.

Though once you get away from Virginia's big 3 metros, there's a whole lotta empty going on, and Southern as it gets.
