This is pretty cool. It's a state by state breakdown of music artists that represent each state. Now bear in mind, this list doesn't exactly feature acts that are actually FROM each individual state, but in our case (Montana), it does.

How did they figure this out? Well, according to Uproxx, this list is pretty subjective but they still take into consideration things like album sales and Grammy wins
