8 Unusual Experiences That Unite Every Tennessean
Unusual is an interesting word. To folks in New York City, a tiny, tight-knit community may seem a little strange amongst the skyscrapers and hustle and bustle. To Californians, tornado warnings may chill them straight to the bone, whereas Tennesseans are a little rough around the edges when it comes to snow. The idea of something “unusual” is an interesting concept, an idea worth exploring, and here are our thoughts on what denotes a true Tennessee experience. Leave your thoughts in the comments below!
