For the first time, newly discovered lyrics by John Denver will see the light of day on Earth Day, April 22nd, thanks to the esteemed Americana band Railroad Earth. The celebrated band wrote music to the unseen lyrics, unearthed by the late artist’s estate. The tracks will be available on a special 7 inch vinyl being sold at music retailers as well as digitally.
The John Denver Estate marks the twentieth anniversary of Denver’s untimely death on October 12 with a slew of new releases and programs including a new single, an album release, two museum exhibits and new availability of Denver’s 1994 autobiography.
On a paradisiacal Denver day for a special concert celebration, John Denver’s former band mates and his friends gathered along with the versatile Colorado Symphony to pay tribute to the Poet Laureate of the state at Boettcher Concert Hall in Denver. There was a large screen visible with John Denver often singing to an enduring older crowd often singing along.
