    Mississippi is really, really tough, but I don't see how one could not include Tammy Wynette. Whether or not one likes her work, she's still "The First Lady of Country Music." The same goes for B.B. King.

    HMs: Charley Pride, Jimmie Rodgers, Muddy Waters, C.A. Burnett ("Howlin' Wolf"), Mickey Gilley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Ace Cannon, Marty Stuart

    Tammy Wynette was born in Red Bay, Alabama and grew up there. Highway is named for her. It is on the AL/MS border. I thought she would probably get claimed for Alabama. Wouldn't know that, but I worked in that area about ten years ago and heard plenty about her growing up there.

    I thought she was born in Tremont, Mississippi (just across the state line from Red Bay), but you may be right.

    According to Wikipedia, you are correct. As if I didn't already know not to trust al.com. There is absolutely a Tammy Wynette highway in Red Bay, but that means nothing considering that Red Bay is all but in Mississippi (just as Tremont, Belmont, etc are all but in Alabama).

    Her dad died when right after she was born and she moved down the road to live with relatives whose property was technically in Alabama, even though it ran into both states. She eventually moved to Birmingham, so Ill give Alabama the tiebreaker.

    Yeah I would have gone with Soul Asylum for that fourth spot.

    Not sure they are big enough to warrant being on there, but I would at least throw Atmosphere and Brother Ali (though he might be considered being from Wisconsin for this) in the list of honorable mentions. Minneapolis has an underrated underground hip hop scene.

    Eagles (though none grew up here)
    Beach Boys
    Dr. Dre

    But there's also Van Halen, RHCP, GnR, Tupac, Grateful Dead, etc.

    Roots and formation (1965–1969)[edit]

    Duane Allman, and his younger brother, Gregg, grew up in Daytona Beach, Florida. Gregg was first to pick up the guitar, but his brother soon surpassed him, dropping out of high school to practice constantly.[4] The duo formed their first band, the Escorts, which evolved into the Allman Joys in the mid-1960s.[5][6] When a black friend introduced Gregg to R&B and soul music, they began to incorporate it into their sound. By 1967, the group spent time in St. Louis, where a Los Angeles-based recording executive discovered them; they consequently moved out West and were renamed the Hour Glass, cutting two unsuccessful albums for Liberty Records.[5][7]Duane moved back to pursue a career as a session musician in Muscle Shoals, Alabama, while Gregg stayed behind in Hollywood bound by contractual obligations with Liberty, who believed he could hold a solo career.[8] The two were apart for the first time for a year, but managed to reconvene in Miami, producing an album-length demo with the 31st of February, a group that included drummer Butch Trucks.[9]

    At FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, Duane Allman became the primary session guitarist, recording with artists such as Aretha Franklin and King Curtis.[5][10] Duane suggested to Wilson Pickett they record a cover of "Hey Jude" by the Beatles; the single went to number 23 on the national charts.[11] FAME signed Duane to a five-year recording contract, and he put together a group, including Johnny Sandlin and Paul Hornsby. Duane recruited Jai Johanny Johanson (Jaimoe) after hearing his drumming on a songwriting demo of Jackie Avery, and the two moved into his home on the Tennessee River. Allman invited bassist Berry Oakley to jam with the new group; the pair had met in a Macon, Georgia, Georgia club some time earlier, and became quick friends.[12] The group had immediate chemistry, and Duane's vision for a "different" band — one with two lead guitarists and two drummers — began evolving.[12] Meanwhile, Phil Walden, the manager of the late Otis Redding and several other R&B acts, was looking to expand into rock acts.[13] FAME owner Hall became frustrated with the group’s recording methods, and offered the tracks recorded and their contract to Walden and Jerry Wexler of Atlantic Records, who purchased them for $10,000.[14] Walden intended the upcoming group to be the centerpiece of his new Atlantic-distributed label, Capricorn.[15]

    Duane and Jaimoe moved to Jacksonville in early March 1969, as Duane had become frustrated with being a "robot" of those at FAME.[16] He invited anyone who wanted to join to the jam sessions that birthed the Allman Brothers Band. Dickey Betts, leader of Oakley’s previous band, the Second Coming, became the group’s second lead guitarist, while Butch Trucks, with whom Duane and Gregg had cut a demo less than a year prior, became the new group's second drummer.[17] The Second Coming's Reese Wynans played keyboards, and Duane, Oakley, and Betts all shared vocal duties.[17] The unnamed group began to perform free shows in Willow Branch Park in Jacksonville, with an ever-changing, rotating cast of musicians.[18] Duane felt strongly his brother should be the vocalist of the new group (which effectively eliminated Wynans' position, as Gregg also played keyboards).[19] Gregg left Los Angeles and entered rehearsal on March 26, 1969, when the group was rehearsing Muddy Waters' "Trouble No More"[20] Although Gregg was initially intimidated by the musicians, Duane pressured his brother into "singing [his] guts out."[21] Four days later, the group made their debut at the Jacksonville Armory.[21] Although many names were kicked around, including Beelzebub, the six-piece eventually decided on the Allman Brothers Band.[22]

    I could probably live with this, 3 of the 4 for sure. Technically John Phillips was born in SC but he's probably associated more with Virginia or California, as well as drugs and a creepy relationship with his daughter.

    HM would go to Buck Trent, the prominent studio musician, banjo virtuoso and Her Haw performer. He was also a childhood friend of my mom's.
