Blog names Atlanta 'Most Redneck City'

Posted: Updated:

It's an honor that some people embrace and others wish Atlanta had never received.

Atlanta has been named the "Most Redneck City" in the country by Movoto Blog. 

To determine the "Most Redneck City," the blog used these eight criteria:

  • 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 racetracks close by
  • Number of Walmarts per capita
  • Number of riding lawn mower/tractor repair shops per capita

The blog looked at each of the criteria, averaged their rank, and came up with each city's final score.

This is the top 10 list:

  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
