The Echo Nest, a music intelligence platform, sampled the preferences of listeners in specific ZIP codes to determine the recording artist that is most distinctive to each state.
Their findings for Missouri may surprise some who think the Show-Me state is full of country-loving cowboys.
For that, apparently, they can fix their eyes on Kansas.
Kansans musical taste was most represented by Eric Church, while indie rock band the Shins represented Missouri.
Other states were more predictable, like Texas love for the country king George Strait and Oklahomas fondness for Jason Aldean.
If you want to get in line with Oklahomans, Jason Aldean headlines a sold-out show Friday at the Sprint Center. Florida Georgia Line and Tyler Farr open.
But really, Arkansas? Wiz Khalifa?
