You are SO Nashville if....

The Nashville Scene has a contest every summer with the above name. It's about the quirks that make Nashville like no other place on earth....


Alot of them you won't really get if you haven't lived here for at least a couple of years but I've pulled a select few that should bring a chuckle to everyone.

You are so Nashville if...

... you need a war to sell records.

... your first visit to the Frist Center was a bummer when you realized that the El Greco exhibit did not feature the former Titans kicker.

... you went to see The Passion of the Christ instead of going to church during Easter week.

... when the CMA Music Festival and Bonnaroo happened in the same weekend, you were sure from the local news you should head straight to Kroger to stock up on bread, milk and toilet paper.

... you spent your TennCare co-pay on lottery tickets.

... you consider yourself more Passion of the Christ than Fahrenheit 9/11.

... you remorsefully went to Tower Records to replace your Dixie Chicks CDs on your way home from seeing Fahrenheit 9/11. Empress' note: boo... hiss... lies and more lies.

... your Individual Retirement Account is called PowerBall.

... you use your Jevon Kearse jersey as a rag. Empress' note: add Eddie George jerseys to the rag pile.

... upon seeing the success of Gretchen Wilson's "Redneck Woman," you just know Keith Urban will follow with his own "Redneck Metrosexual."
