(KLTV) - Did you know that 80% of Americans live in urban areas? Well, apparently that doesn't mean they don't love their country roots, the blog at estately.com says.

Estately wanted to find out which of the five largest cities in the U.S. are most "country." They compared the fifty most populated cities in our country to do their search.

The fifty cities were ranked based on percentage of Facebook users listing ten particular topics as interests. The topics were: country music, fishing, hunting, NASCAR, firearms, barbecue, cowboy boots, pickup trucks, rodeo and sweet tea.

SLIDESHOW: The top 30 "most country" big cities in the U.S. 

More Texas cities made the list (obviously) than any other one state; seven in all. That comes as no surprise, as we do love our barbecue, sweet tea, and ... well ... just about every single thing on that list.

Arlington came in at number 11 on the list.  El Paso was number 5, and San Antonio was declared second most country. Houston and Dallas didn't crack the top fifteen, but Houston (number 16) is considered more country than Dallas (number 26). Austin was ranked 17th most country of the fifty cities, tying with Tucson, Arizona.

Which city do you suppose was crowned as the most country city of all?  It was Fort Worth, Texas. Our hat's off to you, Fort Worth neighbors.
