* Creator/DollyParton starred in the 1986 TV movie ''A Smoky Mountain Christmas'', where she was a country musician named Lorna Davis, [[NoCelebritiesWereHarmed essentially a fictionalized version of herself]]. Disenchanted with the glitzy MTV videos she's being forced to shoot in Hollywood, Lorna goes back to her parents' old cabin in eastern Tennessee for the holidays and spends Christmas with (among others) some orphaned children and a "mountain man." This actually proves to be good for her career, as the Appalachian setting restores her creativity and inspires her to write a number of new songs.

** Trip on ''Series/StarTrekEnterprise'' has a pronounced Southern accent.



* When ''Series/TheDukesOfHazzard'' wasn't making the characters ridiculous characters it was showing the sense of honor and hospitality people have in the Southern US.

Not to be confused with the 2002 film ''Sweet Home Alabama'' or the song by Music/LynyrdSkynyrd.

The DeepSouth in a (usually) more positive light. The Rural South in the United States is a land of [[GoodOlBoy honest, down-to-earth folks]], unlike the pretentious {{City Slicker}}s in New York or "New South" {{Atlanta}}. [[CloseKnitCommunity Some may have their little quirks, but everyone takes those in stride]]. When one wants to escape [[ViceCity the morally bankrupt superficiality of city life]] and get in touch with one's true self, the South is the place to go to.

* "Georgia on My Mind" by Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell, made famous by RayCharles, which was made the official state song in 1979, although originally written about Carmichael's sister, Georgia Carmichael.

->'''Lyons''': Gentlemen, you ask me about the South. It is the land of romance, of roses and honeysuckle, of Southern chivalry and hospitality, fried chicken and waffles, salad and coffee.\\
'''Lippman''': No dessert?

* ''Anime/TurnAGundam'' is set in a post-apocalyptic future that bears an uncanny resemblance to late 19th century Dixie.
** Ironically enough, Nochis (the town where the story begins) is placed in [[{{Joisey}} New Jersey]] on official maps.

* Similar conditions in ''ComicStrip/LilAbner''. Dogpatch, Kentucky may be full of unrefined, impoverished hillbillies, but in general they're pretty nice people.

* [[TheFlash Bart Allen]] was sent to live in Manchester, Alabama (which ''is'' real, despite what ''Impulse'' #1 claims) with his mentor Max Mercury (Max specifically chose it for reasons made clear in issue 16). This is deliberate; the series is based off Mark Waid's childhood in the South.
** ''Manchester'', is the NoCommunitiesWereHarmed substitute for the actual city of Birmingham (which like Bart's town, has a statue of Vulcan on top of a really high pillar in the middle of town and was also named after an English city).
