Songs About Colorado, The Centennial State

The original state song was "Where the Columbines Grow" by A.J. Flynn. In 2007 the honor became shared with the popular 1972 hit "Rocky Mountain High" by John Denver. The song captures the spirit of the mile high atmosphere. Pike's Peak is a mountain view that inspired the song "America The Beautiful" by Katherine Lee Bates. Colorado means "colored red" in Spanish. The territory was named after the Colorado River, named by Spanish explorers by Spanish Explorers. It's called "The Centennial State" because it was admitted to the Union in 1876, the year the nation celebrated its 100th birthday. The state is famous for introducing rodeos.
