Located smack in the middle of the country, Oklahoma is at a cultural crossroads that gives us an exceptionally rich and varied musical heritage. Oklahoma played a huge role in the evolution of jazz, Red Dirt and Western swing, but its citizens have touched every genre of music. We’ve narrowed our list down to more than 75 worthy of special attention, but we could have easily listed hundreds more.


Check out our gallery of 75 (plus a few extra we couldn't leave out – Okay, there's almost 100) people, places and moments.
