The Big Apple is followed by Salt Lake City, Utah; Atlanta, Ga. and Charleston, SC, in order.

Texas, the home state with no shortage of country musician heavyweights ranging from George Strait and Willie Nelson to Lee Ann Womack and Barbara Mandrell, had just one city in the top 10 with Austin in No. 7. Bat City recorded a country music access ranking of No. 20, No. 65 in venue quality ranking, No. 5 in genre interest and came in at No. 14 in regarding the affordability of gigs.

While Austin may have cracked the top 10, only 5 cities in Texas overall made the top 50, including Dallas (#26), Denton (#29), Houston (#37), and Grand Meadow (No. 40).
