Arizona the state turns 100 today. Newspaper dedicated to all things Arizona... Listing out all the music celebrities from Arizona that were a success.
Arizona has sent its share of pop stars to the Hot 100 in its first 100 years while serving as a launching pad for several acts, from Waylon Jennings to the Meat Puppets, whose impact can't be measured by that yardstick.
Born in Phoenix, Stevie Nicks took "Dreams" to No. 1 with Fleetwood Mac. But as a solo act, her highest-charting single was the one that launched her as a solo artist, "Stop Draggin' My Heart Around." Recorded with Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, it peaked at No. 3 in 1981. Her other Top-10 hits were "Stand Back" (No. 5) and two songs that were certified gold -- 1981's "Leather and Lace" (a duet with Don Henley that peaked at No. 6) and "Talk to Me" (No. 4).
