ARIZONA, USA — The Phoenix "rock mecca," Native American punk in Flagstaff and southwest folk music in Tucson: Arizona is no stranger when it comes to music.

The Grand Canyon State has fostered its fair share of famous musical talent since it became a state in 1912, including Stevie Nicks, Alice Cooper, and Linda Ronstadt.

12 News has created its own Spotify playlist to curate songs for Arizona's residents to keep with the state's rich musical tradition, from the desert to the High Country.
