Ten People Who Belong in the Colorado Music Hall of Fame

In 2011, the Colorado Music Hall of Fame's first inductees were John Denver and Red Rocks Amphitheatre. Since then, local legends like Judy Collins, Barry Fey, Sugarloaf, Flash Cadillac, Serendipity Singers and others have been welcomed into the Hall. This year's class includes the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Poco, Firefall and Manassas, which featured Stephen Stills. On Friday, January 9, original members of all the acts, save for Manassas (there will be a tribute to the band and Stills), will perform at the Colorado Music Hall of Fame's Induction Concert at the Paramount Theatre.

As the Hall's roster grows, it is becoming a crucial testament to our state's proud musical history. In that spirit, we'd like to nominate a few people who we think deserve future consideration for induction.
