If a newly-released map is to be trusted, America certainly has diverse tastes in music. Paul Lamere, director of developer platform at The Echo Nest, has compiled data on which artists different states are most loyal to. Lamere marked not the most-listened to artists in the state (because, it's probably Beyonce everywhere) but rather which musicians have an unusually large following in that particular state.
