Top 50 States (for Country Music)
Mike Sudhalter | June 4, 2009
I've visited 43 of the 50 states and recently decided to rank all 50 in terms of country music. Keep in mind, this is my opinion. I've based it on popularity of country music in that state, concert venues/clubs, artists who have come from that state and what the state has contributed to the genre, in general.
It seems that states are ranked in terms of everything else, so why not country music. I came up with the system by assigning a number (one being the worst and five being the best) to each state, and then ranked them accordingly from there.
This is a five-part series that will rank all 50 states from the No. 50 ranked state to the No. 1 spot.
Please e-mail me with your thoughts on the rankings and where you think states should be ranked. Is your state getting an unfair deal in the rankings? Let me know
