The largest metro areas in this region are Nashville, Memphis, Louisville, and Birmingham. For the most part, most of their influence doesn't go much further than the states they are located in; there's a bit of an exception for Louisville and Memphis since they are along their states' borders. But still, none of these cities are really large enough to exert a large regional influence here. I'd say the closest might be Memphis which has a cultural influence on its immediate region and Mississippi (and Arkansas, but it's not included within this region) and has somewhat of a broad economic influence due to Fed Ex.

Jackson is one of the most influential cities in the US dude. Oprah was born near Jackson, and who is more influential than Oprah?

This is probably the toughest pick. So many great cities. I agree with Akhenaton and say those cities are probably at the forefront of this race. Sorry Htown, Jackson is a great city but is behind when compared to Nashville, Memphis, Louisville, and Birmingham.

The problem with this region is that nearly all of it is influenced from cities in the neighboring regions.

Very true, and a good observation. Those cities would primarily be New Orleans, Atlanta, and Cincinnati.

I never realized that the Birmingham metro area was that big. Didn't know any major metro was that close to Atlanta

I would give it to Nashville, thanks to their influence on the music industry.

Nashville is an interesting city isn't it? I need to spend more time in the south. It is so culturally rich.
