Friday Mixtape: Music From the Hospitality State

Mississippi is the birthplace of America's music. Don't believe me? Just look at that road sign. Whether you believe that or not (if you don't, you're wrong), we're still the home of a surprisingly lively and vital music scene despite our meager resources and relatively small population. Here's a playlist of current artists born in Mississippi. There are big time artists (Randy Houser, Rae Sremmurd, Jimmy Buffett), up-and-comers (William Michael Morgan, Dream Cult) and several from the roots realm who we cover fairly regularly (Water Liars, Jason Eady, Cory Brannan, Jimbo Mathus). Hip-hop, Americana, blues, country, indie rock... a little bit of everything. I didn't include Charley Pride or Faith Hill because I'm just not sure their status in regards to putting out new music. Anyway, enjoy! The Spotify playlist appears below the screen captures of the playlist.
