Wyoming: Scott Avett
Scott Avett — the lead singer/creator of the band The Avett Brothers — was born in Cheyenne. His group (featuring his brother) has a very loyal fan base all across the country. Much of their music aims to encapsulate a number of different genres (pop, blues, country).
As of 2017, the group has been nominated for three Grammy Awards. The band has garnered plenty of acclaim for essentially being an independent entity in a world of commercialism and agent-laden groups. Though born in Wyoming, the band itself was reared in their parents’ home state of North Carolina.
