There is a photo of a map that sprouted up online showcasing the most popular, best selling music artists from each state. In other words, artists BORN in particular states that have achieved stardom.

However, when you take a close look at the map, you’ll notice that our neck of the woods have been completely neglected! 

The map is based on the top 250 artists listed by the Recording Industry Association of America . . . so not every state is represented.

Here are the results:

Arizona:  Linda Ronstadt

Why? Could it be that our “stars” simply didn’t generate enough sales to garner the honors? Perhaps, but still…we believe that there are many acts in our state that deserve a nod, sales or no sales.

So, let’s help fill in the rest of this list? Who, in your opinion, still deserves to be included on this list regardless of if they didn’t make the grade with record purchases. Comment below with musical acts that deserve to represent our slice of America.
