Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nydailynews.com: “Texans have sexiest accent in America, Boston and New York land in top three: survey”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The “Southern accent with a twist” that’s known for incorporating strong ‘r’s and the word “howdy,” swept the list of “Top 50 Sexiest Accents In The USA” by Big 7 Travel. The travel publication surveyed a sample of its 1.5 million social audience to determine the rankings.

Of the top 10 accents, four are Northeastern, two are Southern and two are Midwestern. California scores one top 10 spot for the west coast and Hawaii secures a spot for the Pacific.

Although the Northeast is well-represented at the top, it looks like Americans prefer hearing the voices of celebrities like Mark Wahlberg or Jerry Seinfeld to the cast of Jersey Shore. New Jersey came in next to last at 49.

Unsurprisingly, the “General American” accent landed near the middle of the list at number 32. It’s the accent that reporters tend to use on TV or radio and Big 7 cites Stephen Colbert of “The Late Show” as a perfect example.

Meanwhile, there are discrepancies within some states. The state of Florida as a whole landed at spot 44 while the city of Tallahassee came in at 37 and Miami ranked toward the top in 13th place.
