Based on what I know, I would definitely put Baton Rouge and Huntsville at the top. I don't know much about the rest.

Because the above cities are not usually discussed along side of Nashville, Orlando, Tampa, Raleigh, or Austin. Which is a tier under Atlanta, Miami, Houston and Dallas. 3rd tier seems about right for the cities I named.

Knoxville, Little Rock, & El Paso (not southern by the way) lead this pack. They're growing.

The only city on the list I have been to is El Paso, and since that isn't southern, I really can't give a fair answer on the subject. That being said...

Charleston and Savannah. Definitely. I could live in these cities if it weren't for the weather. Heard good things about Knoxville too.

Baton Rouge leads in terms of GDP followed by Little Rock, then Knoxville and El Paso. I overestimated Huntsville in that category.
