'The Music Is You: A Tribute to John Denver'
Thank goodness for recorded music because John Denver is still here even 15 years after he died. The latest release is a compilation of JD music by a variety of artists with covers of some of Denver's most popular songs, artists who include Charlottesville's own Dave Matthews. A portion of the proceeds will be donated to The Wilderness Society in Denver's name.
Filmmaker Justin Kreutzmann interviewed a number of the artists and produced a video that can be seen at JohnDenver.com.
