Country Music Stars Help Pay Tribute To John Denver

John Denver

Forty years ago John Denver released his first single “Rocky Mountain High” and immediately became a household name. John had a strong impact on music and now his efforts are going to be recognized with a new tribute CD.

Mary Chapin Carpenter, Lucinda Williams and Dave Matthews are among the acts who will honor John Denver on a new tribute album. “John Denver: The Music Is You” will raise money for The Wilderness Society in Denver’s name.

Others who appear on the record include My Morning Jacket doing “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” Brandi Carlile and Emmylou Harris tackling “Take Me Home, Country Roads” and Train remaking “Sunshine on My Shoulders.” J Mascis of Dinosaur Jr. and Evan Dando of The Lemonheads also appear on the album, out April 2.
