Well, give them regards from South Carolina, and ask their opinion as to which Southern state is the most "country".

I confess. I don't know the answer to the question. Which is it, and why?
Thats why I said in your opinion. I would say maybe Mississippi. I choose Mississippi ,because it seem like one of the few southern states left that still hold on the southern tradition, food, southern accent and not much of a tourist destination and their probably not that many transplants from Northern and Western States.

I agree, thats why I also picked Mississippi, and although West Texas isnt Southern it is definetely country, texas western cowboy country, think dirt roads and views as far as the eye can see with ranches and farms,big trucks,texas twang and cowboys hats and boots.

Gotta disagree, DS. West Texas (other than the El Paso area) is more "Southern" than "Southwestern."

Had you put it that way, originally, then it would have been a perfectly good question deserving of a perfectly good answer! Why didn't you?

For the question, I would say Mississippi, but I'm not sure about the clarification. Thick southern accents, southern hospitality, and food are not things I think of as necessarily country.
