El Paso Ranks 5th of the "Most Country Cities in the U.S." reports that a survey looked for those who listed the following as interests: country music, fishing, hunting, NASCAR, firearms, barbecue, cowboy boots, rodeos, sweet tea and pickups.

Fort Worth came in first for pickups - as in trucks - second for cowboy boots, third for rodeo and fourth for sweet tea.

Arlington, where the Academy of Country Music will hold its awards show next year at AT&T Stadium, ranked 11th.

San Antonio ranked second, El Paso fifth, Houston 16th and Austin 17th.

Dallas - despite J.R. Ewing - was ranked the lowest of any Texas city, in 26th place.

Nationally, San Francisco ranked at the bottom of the list. Not a big surprise.
