For such a populous state, Florida doesn't seem to have generated a vast array of fantastic musicians. Let's stick with the northern half of the state for now, since the Wolves will be playing Miami in a few days and we can tackle southern Florida's music scene then.
I don't have much besides Tom Petty, the Allman Brothers and Lynyrd Skynyrd, mainstream classic rock at its best in each instance. Help me out.
I leave you with this moving song from Petty about his homeland. Johnny Cash does an amazing version, which is how I first heard this song.
