I don't think any one city can be called a smaller sibling city of Atlanta, but there are three good candidates: Birmingham, Charlotte, and Nashville.
What about Chattanooga?

Galveston is older then Houston. If not for a devastating hurricane. Galveston would be what Houston became. The hurricane fear had most investment move inland. Oil discovered then accelerated Houston becoming the key city over Galveston inward. They also are nothing alike. Generally sibling cities have similarities at least. Houston actually feels Galveston is theirs anyway?

Chattanooga shares some similarities as does Greenville, but Birmingham, Nashville, and Charlotte fit the bill best IMO.

Windsor is the obvious answer to Detroit. Both cities downtowns are directly across the river from eachother, both individual metros form one greater international metro, both cities economies are very automotive based, and both cities are the "automotive capitals" of their respective countries.

Ann Arbor is more of a big college town on the edge of metro Detroit, as opposed to being a sister city to it.
