I live in the south and the difficulty is in defining the
"Southern" accent. Just in my state of North Carolina there are
multiple accents. In eastern NC alone, you have the tidewater,
outer banks, and Wilmington accents. Western NC has the foothill
and mountain accents and there are variants all in between.

The nuances may be lost on some listeners, but after a few
brews, it really doesn't matter anymore.
