The Colorado Playlist That Will Satisfy Your Road Trippin’ Appetite

Centennial State adventures are already phenomenal. But a Colorado playlist for the drive makes them even better. Here are some of our favorite tunes that give a shout-out to Colorado’s rocky mountains, stretching plains, ominous weather, and tantalizing towns. The songs we selected are a combination of new and old, bluegrass and blues, & national and local acts.
