Gone, but never forgotten. 

John Denver wrote and recorded some of country music's most beloved songs including "Take Me Home, Country Roads", "Annie's Song", "Rocky Mountain High", "Thank God I'm A Country Boy", "Sunshine on My Shoulders".

While studying architecture at Texas Tech University, Denver joined a folk-music group called "The Alpine Trio". He eventually dropped out of college to move to Los Angeles and started performing in folk clubs. In Los Angeles, he joined the folk group “Denver, Boise, and Johnson.”

In 1969, Denver went solo and never looked back! He released an album with RCA Records. His next album, which was released in 1971, was a breakthrough for him in the United States, thanks to “Take Me Home, Country Roads”.

After the album release, Denver had a string of four No. 1 hits in a row. He is known onstage for his long, blonde hair, embroidered shirts, and his old-fashioned glasses. He had an extremely successful 30+ year career and recorded 300 songs, 200 of which he wrote. He was also a known humanitarian and activist and cofounded The Hunger Project.

Denver passed away in an accidental plane crash on October 12, 1997 in Monterey Bay, California and he is missed greatly. Movies, music anthologies, and DVD's of unreleased concert recordings have been released posthumously. Denver was also inducted into the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in 2011. 

We have uncovered Denver's last known performance, and he is singing his hit song, "Boy From The Country." Enjoy it below.

Lyrics Below

Because he called the forest "Brother,"because he called the Earth his mother,

they drove him out into the rain.
Some people even said that the boy from the country was insane.

Because he spoke to the fish in the creek. He tried to tell us that the animals could speak.
Who knows? Perhaps they do.
How do you know they don't just because they've never spoken to you?

Boy from the country left his home when he was young, boy from the country, he loves the sun.

He tried to tell us that we should love the land.
We just turned our heads and laughed. You see we did not understand.
Sometimes I think the boy from the country is the only one who sees,
'cause the boy from the country doesn't want to see the forest for the trees.

Boy from the country left his home when he was young, boy from the country, he loves the sun.
