What is the difference between a southern accent and a western accent? To me, people from Virginia and Idaho sound similar.

You're kidding, right? An Idaho accent sounds nothing like a Virginia accent--and there are several accents in Virginia.

Western accent of course. The Southern accent sucks and sounds so terrible.

I can see similarities between the southern accent and people in parts of the interior southwest, such as in people from parts of New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado, southern Utah, southern Nevada, and interior southern California.

I also see similarities between people in the Pacific northwest, such as Oregon and Washington, with the Great Lakes region.

I have the traditional SW accent. The best I can tell, it's a modified accent of the type spoken in the Mid South into OK and the Texas panhandle. I guess it's pretty obvious how it spread.
