Not country in a rural sense. They're both large metropolises, but they have that stereotypical southern culture thing going on. Accents, dialect, food, etc.
Put it like this, when you're in either city you should be well aware that you're in the south. Don't take it as a negative thing as they are southern cities.

Oh ok. So why isn't New Orleans considered as urban country? As well as most cities in the south?

Now that I know the definition of "Urban Country", New Orleans has a distinct culture that clearly sets it apart from the rest of the south. Miami would be another good example. Heck, I'll even throw Lafayette in as an exception, albeit a small one...

Music and food might be other indicators. Urban Country has a yuppie sounding feel, at least to me, like cowboy boots and lattes are okay.

Well, to give an example of how "country" Houston is . . . there are still areas inside Houston city limits that have barbed wire fences and cows! God I love Texas!
