Quotable Quotes:

"[on composing for The Bears and I (1974)] Heck, I'm no Henry Mancini or Michel Legrand. I just play the guitar and write songs. I know I'm incapable of orchestrating an entire film. They just asked me to write something expressing the story about a guy who's back from Vietnam and sorta lost, who goes to an Indian village in the Northwest." (IMDB)

"John Denver lived a life full of heartfelt music and inspiring lyrics that continue to touch the lives of listeners even after his passing. (V)"
