Thank God I'm a Country Boy.


Its a day late, but none the less, im going to write this blog in memory of one of my favorite muscians. What makes it hard is that I always knew his music since I started listening to country, but it was only after his death that I liked the man himself. This person I wish I could have seen in concert. But the testoment of this man will always be an inspiration to me.

"One of the world's best-known and best-loved performers, John Denver earned international acclaim as a songwriter, performer, actor, environmentalist and humanitarian. Johns music has spanned three decades, outlasted countless musical trends, and garnered numerous music awards and honors, including a 1996 Induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame, and in 1993, the prestigious Albert Schweitzer Music award." www.johndenver.com

John Denver
Born, December 31st, 1943 Returned to God, October 12th, 1997

"My music and all my work stem from the conviction that people everywhere are intrinsically the same, when I write a song, I want to take the personal experience or observation that inspired it and express it in as universal a way as possible. I'm a global citizen. I've created that for myself, and I don't want to step away from it. I want to work in whatever I do…towards a world in balance, a world that creates a better quality of life for all people."
- John Denver
