Yay, Michigan! I actually have a couple of Petoskey stones in my beach-themed bathroom as decoration. :) Found them on the shores of Lake Michigan.

Easy, did it all with 1:29 left even though I had to do a quick google search of what is the keystone state, it turned out to be Pennsylvania.

I enjoyed this. I love state quizzes. Thanks. Question: I was born in Kentucky and thought that the bluegrass symbol is due to the Blue-grass not the musical genre. (Even though bluegrass music did originate in Kentucky with Bill Monroe). I found this online: "Bluegrass" is the common name for grass of the genus Poa, which is a favored lawn and pasture grass in the eastern United States from Tennessee northward. Bluegrass is actually green - but in the spring bluegrass produces bluish-purple buds that give a rich blue cast to the grass when seen in large fields." (Statesymbols.org). Anyway, thanks for the quiz.

I agree, Kentucky is called the bluegrass state due to the actual type of grass, not the style of music. From Wikipedia: "Kentucky is known as the "Bluegrass State", a nickname based on the bluegrass found in many of its pastures due to the fertile soil."

It is called the Bluegrass State because of the blue-grass, however, Bluegrass is the official music of Kentucky, which is what the hint is referring to.
