October 12, 2019: John Denver

October 12, 1997 John Denver, American music star and actor died in plane crash at the age of 53. He had just finished having a new experimental airplane Rutan Long-EZ built, and was testing it out when he crashed.

Denver was quite an accomplished singer in Folk Music, Country Music, and had some crossover success in the 1970’s. He also performed with legendary actor George Burns in the movie OH GOD in 1977. It wasn’t quite as popular as Star Wars or Smokey & The Bandit, but it did well.

What is your favorite John Denver song or moment?
