Girls Of The USA: A Playlist

Yesterday I published a playlist inspired by girls of the world. As a follow-up, I thought I would create a list inspired by girls from different states here at home in the USA. Just as women from different countries have varying degrees of mystique, women from different states conjure various stereotypes. In music, it was the Beach Boys who put the California girl on the map, and made them the most famous in all these 50 united states. But other states have their own claims to fame regarding women in song. This playlist includes 21 songs inspired by women from 21 different states. That means I'm missing 29 states, so what would you add to complete the list?
