I think John Denver is one of the people who defined the early 1970s popular music with the fusion of country, folk, rock and singers who wrote most of their their own songs, and created some of the most soaring inspirational lyrics and some of the worst schlock of the era.  But he didn't try to be hip or edgy or anything other than the country boy he was.  He was a wonderful performer as well.  The time I saw him, he sent his band off for a break, and stayed on the stage, doing several acoustic tunes before his band rejoined him.

He will be missed.
