More than 600 people died on Colorado roads last year. The state says it's an epidemic of distracted driving -- especially among teens. New technologies created by a Boulder entrepreneur and a major automaker aim to lower the number of deaths. Then, the University of Denver's men's hockey team plays for the national championship this weekend, led by Will Butcher, who is up for an award given to the nation's best player. Also, West Central Colorado has seen the worst of the coal slump and residents aren't counting on President Donald Trump to bring back the industry. And, you might think of Nashville, not Denver, as a hotspot for country music, but bands like Bison Bone are here to change that. Their debut album,“History Of Falling” is out today.
