GREENWOOD VILLAGE, Colo. — A storied Colorado country music station is celebrating its 40th anniversary with a special day of programming on Saturday, July 11.
Denver's 98.5 KYGO will countdown the top 40 songs in KYGO's history, playing the biggest songs and some surprise songs over the last four decades, from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Saturday.
The station will then present KYGOpia, a virtual concert from the KYGO Amphitheater, featuring the top country artists of all time, from 11 a.m. to midnight.
Country music artists on the schedule include Garth Brooks, Carrie Underwood, Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Blake Shelton, Florida Georgia Line, Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Dierks Bentley, Old Dominion, Jason Aldean, Alabama, Maren Morris, Zac Brown Band, Miranda Lambert, Keith Urban, Eric Church as well as a few surprises.
"It's rare to have one format associated with a set of call letters for 40 years," said Bob Call, Bonneville Denver SRVP and Market Manager. "It would have never been possible without the love, care and dedication of each KYGO staff member contributing to our success over the years. It’s a privilege to serve the Denver community and our great Country music fans."
"KYGO is such an integral part of Colorado and Denver history both in terms of community service and bringing Country music to the state," said Brian Michel, Program Director for 98.5 KYGO. "We’re excited to bring this Saturday’s programming to the KYGO audience for reflection and celebration."
Known as "Denver's No. 1 for new country," 98.5 KYGO officially turned 40 on Tuesday, July 7.
