I think both are nice towns.

NC is actually a little bit warmer in the winters (on average) than TN... So if anyone is moving to the South to leave winter behind, I think Chapel Hill / Raleigh / Durham area might be a better fit.

I do agree that Chapel Hill has more of a college town feeling. The entire Research Triangle area in NC is really big into the sciences. I understand there has been a LOT of relocation of Northerners down to Cary, NC (which is also right in the Triangle area if I'm not mistaken). In fact, Cary is known as "Containment Area for Relocated Yankees".

Country music is a much bigger deal in TN.

And TN BBQ is better than NC (vinegar style), IMHO. But YMMV (your mileage may vary, depending on personal tastes).

I think there's a lot to recommend both areas. Sometimes I do wish I was closer to the ocean. Chapel Hill is less than 4 hours from the Outer Banks and only about 5 hrs from DC.

Nashville is within 4-5 hours of some big/medium cities (Atlanta, Indianapolis, Memphis, St. Louis).

I'd say visit both places and see what suits you better!

Moved to Franklin from Concord, NC. A good choice. Like Franklin much more than Concord/Charlotte area. People are much more friendly.
