The Best Musical Artists From Nevada

List Rules
Only artists born or raised in Nevada or bands formed in Nevada.

Here are the best artists and bands from Nevada. Las Vegas is a popular tourist destination with millions of people flocking to the city every year. People go to gamble, eat at some of the best restaurants in the world, and watch their favorite artists perform. Plenty of non-native acts take up residences in the city, but if you are lucky, then you may just get the chance to see notable Nevada musical artists take the stage in their hometown. 

The Killers are one of the most famous bands to come out of the state in recent memory. Other huge acts that got their start in the Silver State include Escape the Fate, Falling in Reverse, and Panic! at the Disco. Rock certainly has a big presence in the state, but other genres have gained a foothold in the area. Grammy Award-winning artists like Ne-Yo and Eric Whitacre performed to small audiences around the state before they achieved their fame. Other popular Nevada artists include Slaughter, 3LAU, Julianne Hough, and Imagine Dragons. 

Check out this list of Nevada musical artists to see which ones you like best. You may find bands you had no idea came from Nevada on here, so brace yourselves for some cool, new information. Vote for the bands, singers, and rappers you listen to most.
