Home / National News / Nashville Tops List of ‘Most American’ Cities


(NEW YORK) — Nashville is about American as apple pie. Maybe even more so now that the personal finance website WalletHub has named it 2014’s most American U.S. metro area.

To reach that conclusion, WalletHub graded 366 metro areas on a series of 26 metrics that included age, gender and income.

Nashville scored at near the top of key rankings such as socio-demographic makeup, housing, economy and education to capture the crown.
Interestingly, WalletHub determined that Tulsa, Oklahoma, most closely resembled the U.S. in terms of age while Denver looked most like America in regards to race.

At the bottom of the list was McAllen, Texas.
