Third Coast is a term sometimes used in the United States for regions other than the "East Coast" and the "West Coast", which are commonly seen as centers of American popular culture. The term can refer to the Great Lakes region (see Third Coast International Audio Festival), the Gulf Coast, or, the city of Nashville, Tennessee, which, though it lies inland, has a strong reputation as the "Music City". One of the more well-known usages of the term "third coast" refers to Houston, Texas and Atlanta, Georgia collectively. These two cities were made famous in the nineties for generating unique hip-hop styles known as "screw" or "dirty soul" and often refer to their region as the "third coast" or "dirty third". The city of Chicago, built on the expanse of the sea-like Lake Michigan, is the biggest "Third Coast" contender. Regional definitions vary from source to source. ...
