Spotify Reveals the Most Popular Artist in Every State

Spotify is currently celebrating its 10th anniversary, which is crazy because we really haven't found a better way to stream music since that time. So in order to celebrate their anniversary, they decided to reveal the most popular artists in each state.

It should be noted that this isn't the most listened to artist in each state, because that would probably just be a list full of Taylor Swift, Drake and Beyonce. Instead, this list shows what artist your state listens to way more than any other state. So if your state's most popular artist is Nickelback, that doesn't mean they're the most listened to artist in your state. It simply means your state listens to Nickelback WAY more than any other state.

Make sense? Ok, here's the list:

Alabama – Cannabis Club ATL

These veteran curlers hope to bring some new life to the sport by combining it with cannabis. Last October, Grant Nicholson and Ted Ratcliffe pitched a novel idea to their curling club's executives: the Wiarton & District Curling Club should host what may be Canada's first official 'bongspiel' - a pun on bonspiel, the official name for curling tournaments. The event, which is essentially a bring-your-own-weed curling tournament, proved far more popular than the club executives expected, selling out completely in the first 24 hours.
