One of the most popular recording artists of the 1970s, country-folk singer/songwriter John Denver's gentle, environmentally conscious music established him among the most beloved entertainers of his era; wholesome and clean-cut, his appeal extended to fans of all ages and backgrounds, and led to parallel careers as both an actor and a humanitarian. He achieved stardom with 1971's Poems, Prayers & Promises, thanks to the million-selling hits "Take Me Home, Country Roads" and "Sunshine on My Shoulders." By 1974 he was firmly established as America's best-selling performer, as he continued to top the singles charts with efforts including "Thank God I'm a Country Boy." ~ Jason Ankeny
