Music is a big part of our region’s history, identity and culture. Stretching all the way back to Woody Guthrie singing about the depression, Oklahoma has a strong tradition of producing influential musicians across a variety of musical styles.
Specifically, here in OKC the talent is just as diverse. From Grammy-winning rockers to country superstars and early jazz pioneers, check out a list of some of the famous musicians who have or still call Oklahoma City home: Oklahoma City Blue Devils, Color Me Badd, Mason Williams, Hinder, Garth Brooks and Neal Schon. Also check out these bios for a little reminder of why Wanda Jackson Way, Charlie Christian Boulevard, Vince Gill Avenue and Flaming Lips Alley are named as such.
