NOrth Carolina Music

Music in the Tar Heel State runs the gamut, There is definitely a leaning towards the country and bluegrass sounds of yesterday, but with so many cities and universities in the state, you get a lot of rock, pop and even hip-hop. North Carolina has given us some wonderful musicians as well. I hope you enjoy this playlist.
