Stacker's Famous Songs About Every State

"Every state has an ode in song. California has inspired tracks by the Red Hot Chili Peppers & the Beach Boys. "Empire State of Mind" and "Welcome to New York" are the recent additions to the peck of songs celebrating New York. Country tunes abound with Texas pride. But all states have songs written about them, and every state has an official state song—except for New Jersey, perhaps because it would force the state to decide Bruce Springsteen & Jon Bon Jovi. In this list, Stacker highlights one famous song about every state. The tracks span all genres, topics, & decades. But they all have one thing in common: celebrating their respective state." - stacker.com. ...and sure, may have expected "Georgia On My Mind" by Ray Charles (altho I'm a fan of "DWDTG"), "Blue Hawaii" by Elvis, or "Take Me Home, Country Roads" for West Virginia by John Denver, but JD is represented here, and maybe they wanted to make it not so obvious...still, maybe "California Girls" by the Beach Boys is preferred?
