American Pickers' host supports move to rural Tennessee with new campaign

"American Pickers" star Mike Wolfe is joining leaders from 13 rural Middle Tennessee and Northwest Alabama communities to launch a new regional movement dubbed “Nashville’s Big Back Yard," encouraging people to move to the state's rural small towns or at least pay them a visit.
...
The initiative led by Wolfe in front of the camera and by the participating communities behind it, emphasizes that in the age of an ongoing coronavirus pandemic, small communities are seeing a surge of interest from people who are drawn to rural living, the possibilities of working remotely and living an affordable lifestyle.

A spring 2020 Harris Poll survey found nearly 40% of U.S. adults living in urban areas said they would consider moving “out of populated areas and toward rural areas.”

According to data from the National Association of Realtors, median home prices in Nashville’s Big Back Yard averaged less than $170,000 vs. the national median home price of $241,300
