The Most Redneck Cities in America

Movoto, a real estate blog, put together a list of what they call the most redneck cities in America. And pardner, North Texas was on that list faster than a Moon Pie melts in a hot pickup truck.

The blog compiled its rather unique criteria for ranking redneck cities:

- Percent of population that didn’t complete high school
- Number of gun and ammo stores per capita
- Number of taxidermists per capita
- Number of cowboy boot stores per capita
- Number of country radio stations per capita
- Number of NASCAR race tracks close by
- Number of Walmarts per capita
- Number of riding lawn mower/tractor repair shops per capita

Atlanta takes the top spot, while Fort Worth and Arlington rank in the bottom half at number six and number seven. Oklahoma was the only other state with two cities in the top 10 as our redneck brothers in Oklahoma City and Tulsa ranked number three and number five.

See Movoto's rankings for the most redneck cities below.

1. Atlanta, GA
2. Kansas City, MO
3. Oklahoma City, OK
4. Nashville, TN
5. Tulsa, OK
6. Fort Worth, TX
7. Arlington, TX
8. Sacramento, CA
9. Cleveland, OH
10.Mesa, AZ

Nope, not on the list. I'd even bet that my hometown is one of the least redneck cities out there (although they did finally get a Walmart a few years ago, despite the protesting).

I am a little bit surprised by Mesa being on the list and not a few of our other fair cities/towns here in Arizona. Didn't they consider a good portion of northern Arizona? Jerome? Cottonwood? Camp Verde? Williams?

Mesa has a huge Mormon community and I've yet to see too many "rednecks" come out of that particular religion.

Guns and ammo have zero to do with being redneck.
