A study has named Nashville "Americas Manliest Cities" : the most masculine metropolis in the United States.
According to Mars Chocolate North America, the third annual study used metrics including the number of manly businesses, such as home improvement stores and steak houses, and manly jobs, such as construction, to rank the relative manliness of 50 U.S. cities.
The study deducted manliness points from cities with large numbers of cupcake stores or fancy furniture sellers.
It ranked Nashville in the top spot, followed by Charlotte, N.C.; Oklahoma City; Memphis and Columbia, S.C.
Los Angeles ranked last on the list with San Diego ranking No. 49.
The Board of Manliness helped rank the cities, and included actor Lou Ferrigno, baseball Hall of Famer Rollie Fingers, retired wrestler Sergeant Slaughter, comedian Judy Gold and champion lumberjack Mike Sullivan.
