Fan-written letters to John Denver is today’s blog topic. On this day, March 30th, his song “Sunshine On My Shoulders” reached number one in 1974. Last year a hardcover coffee table book came out entitled: “It’s About Time – Letters to John Denver”.
In thinking of his other songs they include “Annie’s Song”, “Rocky Mountain High”, and I eventually end up with “Leaving on a Jet Plane” which he wrote in 1966 and Peter, Paul, and Mary recorded later in 1969.

The book is “… a collection of fan-written stories about how John Denver’s music inspired and uplifted people around the world. It’s a unique, one of a kind, beautiful, hardcover book – created by fans, spread over 118 pages. It features beautiful nature shots, John Denver quotes, fan pictures, and stories…” The 11″ x 8″ book includes letters and pictures. This is a link to preview the finished book according to its site – Weeva Bookstore.
