The number of popular bands and artists that people are listening to in 2023 is massive, but here are the top 5 most popular music artists in Florida.

When you think of big music moments that have happened in 2023, there are a few that really stand out. Here in Fort Myers, I feel like the biggest artist has to be Taylor Swift. And I don’t think that’s limited to just here in SWFL. She is the biggest thing in the world right now. Not only over this last year did she have 13 albums on the weekly Billboard 200 chart, but she also earned over $1 billion from her Eras Tour, making it the biggest grossing tour of all time.

But it’s not just Taylor Swift that people are listening to. There were many artists, spanning a variety of genres that had a massive 2023. Morgan Wallen is the top touring country artist of the year. Beyonce had a huge year with her Renaissance tour and she also became the most awarded artist in Grammy history. Luke Combs and Drake are two other artists that are included in the top 5 with the highest appearance in Google trends around the country.

So what are people loving the most in the Sunshine State? Casinos.com used Google trends to determine the most popular musical artists in each state. You may be surprised, that none of those mentioned above where tops here in Florida. You can see the full list here.
