It's hard to believe but John Denver was killed in a plane crash on this day in 1997. 

Where has the time gone?

John Denver came up as a folk singer and composer.

His big chance came in 1969 when Peter Paul & Mary recorded "Leaving on a jet plane".       Denver 
jumped on the opportunity and released a string hits of the 1970's, such as “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” “Rocky Mountain High,” “Sunshine On My Shoulders,” “Annie’s Song,” “Back Home Again,” “Thank God I’m A Country Boy,” and “Calypso”.

His unique sound created a following on Top 40, country and folk radio stations.    

Denver faded a bit in the 1980's although his concerts still attracted huge crowds.   He always had a huge following because his songs are timeless.
