Overview

15 years after his death and 25 years after the release of his widely beloved song “Rocky Mountain High,” ATO Records will celebrate John Denver’s life and music with The Music Is You: A Tribute to John Denver, out March 19, 2013. The album features covers of Denver’s most popular songs by a diverse group of artists including Dave Matthews, Train, Lucinda Williams, Emmylou Harris duets with Brandi Carlile, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, Amos Lee, Old Crow Medicine Show, Josh Ritter, Kathleen Edwards, Brett Dennen, Milow, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Blind Pilot, J Mascis, Allen Stone, Sharon Van Etten and Evan Dando with proceeds of the album benefiting The Wilderness Society.

The album follows a recent resurgence in Denver’s popularity with his hits compilation Definite All-Time Greatest Hits being certified gold in 2011 and the 15th annual John Denver Tribute Concert culminating in Colorado this month. Holding true to Denver’s message, 2011’s John Denver Earth Day Celebration Concert sold out.

John Denver, the two-time Grammy Award-winning singer songwriter and the Poet Laureate of Colorado, released twenty three studio albums in his lifetime. He is best known for the beloved songs “Leaving on a Jet Plane,” “Take Me Home Country Roads,” “Sunshine On My Shoulders, “Annie’s Song” and “Rocky Mountain High,” which is the state song of Colorado. Denver is the 53rd highest selling artist worldwide with over 32.5 million records sold and seven Billboard Top Ten Albums in the U.S. His catalog continues to sell thousands of units per week. Among his numerous awards and recognitions, Denver was instrumental in championing environmental causes and space exploration.
