Influential Wisconsin musicians you may not have heard of

There's a new article up now on JSonline about the 25 Wisconsin musicians who have made the most impact over the last century. Yes, there are plenty of artists you'd expect: Bon Iver, Liberace, Les Paul -- artists most of us are aware of. But there are also so many artists you may not know were from Wisconsin.

For instance there's Pee Wee King, a legendary country artist featured in the new Ken Burns "Country Music" documentary, or Felice Bryant, a Milwaukee songwriter behind some huge hits including The Everly Brothers' classic "Bye Bye Love."
