Tennesseans Are Defying The Odds [Mixed Reviews]

Tennessee may be the 3rd/6th fattest state, but Williamson County is actually the 3rd skinniest county in the nation, and Maury County is 4th. [Thanks to Laurel for the tip!]

Tennessee may be the Volunteer State, but we rank 39th on the national scale of actual volunteer rates. Nashville fares a little better when compared to other cities; we’re 22nd out of 50 large cities. 

Tennessee may have some of the safest drivers around (we disagree), but Tennesseeans spend almost 6% of their income on gas. We’re the 17th most vulnerable state to the price of oil. 

We like to keep it complicated here in Tennessee.
