The Mid-South…
The Mid-South might be unofficially defined as the area from the middle of Kentucky in the north to the upper half of Alabama to the south. And, it includes the area from the Tennessee River in the West to the Cumberland Plateau in the East. The Mid-South is one of the nation’s fastest growing regions. While the landscape is often rolling countryside, the northern and eastern boundaries tend to be more hilly. Lakes provide boating and fishing recreation in many counties in all states. And, the Smoky Mountains in the eastern part of the state and the Mississippi River and Memphis in the west are only a day trip away. Residents enjoy four distinct seasons. Fall is colorful with often brilliant foliage, winters are relatively mild, spring is cool and green, and summers are warm, but retain the greens of spring late into the season.

The Economic Climate…
The Mid-South, with Nashville as its anchor, has long been noted as the world’s center for Country Music. However, the new Mid-South offers much more. There is a growing and diverse business climate that now includes a burgeoning auto production industry. Also, major national health service providers, printers, green industries developing solar and wind power, and insurance companies comprise only a small part of the varied business scene. Excellent public and private education, overall lower property tax rates, favorable work laws, have led many national companies to call the Mid-South home. The regional draw of the Tennessee Titans NFL football team and Nashville Predators NHL hockey, along with strong support for major state and regional college sports, makes recruiting employees from all parts of the nation easy.

The Mid-South boasts some of the friendliest and most active communities in the nation including…
