Cited as the most conservative town in the US by 20/20 (credible for sure), Franklin is about 30 minutes south of Nashville, TN, located in the state's richest county (Williamson) and home to a bunch of (white) country, christian, folk and other musicians (along with a bunch of other professionals or preachers). Picturesque Main Street with local pastry shops (Merridee's is a staple!) and boutiques (which can be hella pricey...country stars shop there...) almost make you forget the city's fame: The Battle of Franklin. Yes, there are historic sites touting the town's dedication to Confederates, just like there are locals who wish we wouldn't. Overall, if you go there, you'll wish you had the $400,000 to buy a modest house with a picket fence, raise a family, and send your kids to one of the best public school districts ever. And you would raise them to love God and hate Brentwood (and maybe liberals...maybe).
Guy 1: Where you from?
Guy 2: Outside Nashville.
Guy 1: Really? I was raised in Brentwood.
Guy 2: I'm from Franklin, Tennessee.
