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.
Hit play, crank up the volume, grab the wheel with both hands, feel the pedal beneath your foot, and get ready for the road. You’re in for a Nomad Colorado experience!
