From this Northerner's point of view, a Tennessee accent is still very southern.
Mr. Ouisch was born and raised in Georgia, but has lost a bit of his southern accent from living in Michigan for the past 14 years. However, when we go back to Georgia to visit his parents, that good ol' southern boy drawl comes a-gallopin' back. I think that you, too, will recapture the Biloxi accent of your youth if you spend a little time there.
