The mission of The Rock Awards is to create public awareness of the incredible talent of our Colorado music scene. To put Denver on the map as a music capital of the world. Raven's view is "Nashville and Austin are music capitals 'because' people go there. Although Welcome, we don't need musicians to come here to Colorado, we already have them."

With the growing population of Colorado and the increasing visitors, our venues are stepping up and creating atmospheres with stages, lighting, sound, amazing menu's and especially paying the bands and not charging a cover to become a true "music" venue.

There are 49 Award Categories including Indoor Venue, Outdoor Venue, Recording Studio, Producer and Lifetime Achievement which includes Hazel Miller, Chris Daniels and Scotty Brown as the top three nominees.
