LOS ANGELES, CA  -  Thursday, July 22, 2010

Alfred Music Publishing, the leader in educational music publishing since 1922 and the exclusive print publisher of thousands of popular artists, is excited to release The John Denver Songbook, a greatest hits collection by this legendary performer, arranged for piano and voice.

John Denver was one of the most beloved and successful entertainers of his era. His extraordinary talent and sunny charisma made him a favorite not just on records, but on television and film as well. During his career he won multiple awards, including two Grammys, an Emmy, and the Country Music Assocation’s Entertainer of the Year. In 1996, he was elected to the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Denver’s tender songs about relationships struck a chord with his many fans. His passionate activism in protecting the environment was evident in songs such as “Calypso” and “Rocky Mountain High” long before it became fashionable. This songbook features 27 of Denver’s classic songs, including such hits as “Annie’s Song,” “Sunshine on My Shoulders,” and “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”

The John Denver Songbook is now available for $19.99. Pick up your copy at a local music retail store, or buy it today at alfred.com.
