In 1974, John Denver was American music’s best-selling artist. Between 1974 and 1975, he had four No. 1 singles. His “John Denver’s Greatest Hits” album was a staple in American homes, selling 9 million copies.

His songs had a decided country flair, including “Thank God I’m a Country Boy” and “Take Me Home, Country Roads.” But he was also a pop music phenomenon, selling more than 33 million albums in his career. He was a prolific songwriter, composing two-thirds of his 300-plus song catalog.
