Are those the only places in the South and Midwest you have lived?

Nope I have also lived in Greensboro North Carolina and in Northern Kentucky. Greensboro is def not southern either its much like Kentucky. and Northern Kentucky is def more closer to Midwest than the rest of the state from what I have seen.

I'm from Western Kentucky (born in Madisonville - live in Owensboro) and consider myself VERY Southern indeed. When we lived briefly in Iowa and Illinois, people were always asking me which part of the south I was from. So the accent's quite noticeable.

Also, I think of a few traits when I think of southerners: Polite, laid back, friendly, and fond of great southern food! So in those regards, I'd say we're definitely southern - as southern as the food we eat!

Great question, by the way!

Well I'd say by this thread and others we as a whole are very much proud of being Southerners.

What part of Kentucky do you live in? I can't say anything about Greensboro but NC is most definately Southern!

People in Alabama and Mississippi would laugh at the thought of considering Kentucky or much of North Carolina as southerners lol.

i think eastern ky ,where i live by the way in louisa, is very very country i personally dont care but i do get offended when people talk about all of kentucky when only visiting 2 or 3 places and making a statment that quite frankly should have been said at all ,i am just curiouse also as to why you have all these posts about how southern virginia is compared to ky because for one location is one thing to look at but being southern or country comes from each individual and how you have grown up in my opinion but anyway i dont feel like typing any more so in my advise if you want to see country come hear to louisa or martin or pikeville or basicly any town in eastern ky because clearly you havent seen much of this side and i cant speak for how west ky is because i havent been there and interacted with anyone from there so anyway good luck on your complex you seem to have and just let it go ....ok just LET IT GO

That is totally not true. I have family on the coast of Mississippi and they consider Kentucky southern. As a matter of fact there is very little difference in people there and here.

So what if thats what your family or friends think? lol I know people in those states who laugh at the thought of Kentuckians as southerners. You people kill me. There are differences of opinions.... just as this forum has shown Just because you or your family think something doesnt make it true, just as what I think may not be true. Damn those independent thinkers!
