Pretty much any year you can count on anyone who’s anyone in country music making a stop somewhere in Denver. We have some of the most iconic venues to see a show, and in my opinion a pretty great country radio station too…. See what I did there?! Long story short, I feel like Denver has to be one of the best cities in America for country music fans, right?

The folks at Lawnstarter agree… They recently published a list of the 2022 ‘best cities for country music fans’ and the Mile High City made the top ten. Denver ended up landing in 10th place thanks to a high ‘access’ rank and a high ‘genre interest’ rank.

Here’s where it gets weird, though. Lakewood (which is basically part of Denver) ranked 162nd on the list of 182 cities. Hmm…

Lawnstarter considered eight key factors, including number of country music concerts, access to venues, and affordability, as well as local interest, based on Google search data.

Of course Nashville was number one. You can see the rest of the list here.
