Here are 15 songs that were inspired by our home state of Colorado. Do you have a favorite?

By far, the gold standard for Colorado songs is sung by the same guy who has another iconic song about West Virginia!. Maybe he was onto something. Let's write and sing songs about specific places. People will love it. May I present Henry John Deutschendorf, Jr.

Yup, that's right. We know him best as John Denver. 'Rocky Mountain High' should always finish number one on any Colorado song list.

But, there are plenty of other nods and odes to this great state. This list of 15 Colorado songs surprised me. Just for the fact that there are at least 15 songs about the Centennial State.

Let's vote your favorite. But, remember we have already chosen the coveted number one spot.
