Who the heck is John Denver?
John Denver was a folk singer with amazing songwriting ability and vocal talent. He is one of those rare artists that sounds as good live as on the album.
John's music is heavily influenced by his spiritual connection to nature. He wrote multiple songs about the beauty of Colorado, for example. Tragically, his life ended in a small plane crash in October 1997 at the age of 53. He left a strong legacy behind him... if only kids knew about this stuff!
I present to you, in no particular order, 15 amazing songs. Not all of these are off greatest hit compilations... some I just really enjoy. Share this with your friends who obsess over dubstep.
