I often forget, like most, the true beauty that every state holds when one is willing to see it for what it really is. Tennessee is one of the most underrated states in my opinion. It has so much to offer, from beautiful nature scapes, an abundance of history, stunning architecture, and of course the culture dominated by music.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine.

Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
