The State of Wyoming was included in the category “State Songs” on Jeopardy Wednesday night.

In fact, it was the supposed most difficult question of the category in the first round as its worth was $1,000.

It stumped everyone. Not even a guess.

To most Wyomingites, it would seem pretty easy.

The answer reads:

“Wyoming’s second state song, official since 2018, mentions this 4-letter river named for strong gusts in the area.”

You don’t need to know anything about the song to answer the question. You just have to think about what most people in Wyoming deal with on a fairly regular basis — or the well-known river.

What’s the right answer (question)?

Wind. Duh.

Annie and Amy Smith, the Wyoming singing duo, were pretty excited about it. After all, they wrote the song “Wyoming Where I Belong.”

They alerted their fans earlier in the day that the song would be mentioned on Jeopardy.


“NEWSFLASH: Jeopardy Television show contacted us and said “Wyoming’s second state song ‘Wyoming Where I Belong’ will be aired tonight! That is a clue to the song and will be announced on the show! Watch it and let us know!”

“I saw it and got it right and those chumps missed it,” wrote Dan Kirkbride on the Facebook post.

Here’s the video of Wyoming’s second state song “Wyoming Where I Belong”
