John Denver and James Taylor are my two biggest heroes musically. The soulful guitar stylings have resonated with me over the years and have help shape how I think and who I am. I’ve played their music with my own hands and sung their songs at weddings, funerals, and campfires. But, as I mature emotionally and spiritually, I realize in some small way what it is to be committed to peace, the environment, and the brotherhood of man. John Denver was and continues to be a person who’s message was clear and whom I look to for inspiration.
