balloons 4th of July

Musical adventure from 50 Artists and 50 States

Roseville, Calif.,- This 4th of July, we’re once again heading over to one of our favorite musical tools, Spotify to craft a holiday playlist. Just for Fun!

If you listen to countless hours of music, you might get a little bored every year 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.
