Band on stage in Oakland, Calif

Musical adventure from 50 artists across 50 states

Roseville, Calif.,- Just for fun this 4th of July, we’re revisiting one of our favorite musical tools, Spotify to share our Fourth of July holiday playlist that offers songs from an artist from every state in America. Maybe it will inspire you to create your own personal list of songs.

If you listen to countless hours of music, you might get tired of hearing the same, predictable, homogenous list of songs that seem to appear on every single Fourth of July playlist.

Here’s a playlist that channels our inner DJ and includes artists either born or closely identified with a particular state. One song and one artist per state with no duplicates. A combination of new and old songs, the playlist covers the blues to country and metal to hip-hop and clocks in just under four hours. Happy listening.
