Since the John Denver classic "Annie's Song" launched him as a contestant on the X Factor in 2012, Jason Owen has planned for this album. His father, the much-loved patriarch of his family asked him again and again to do a tribute album. With his pop's health on the decline and the 20th anniversary of the legend's passing, Jason knew there was no better time for this album.
A labour of love, the album is packed with songs that made John Denver a household name including "Annie's Song," "Sunshine On My Shoulders," and first single "Take Me Home Country Road." Jason's exceptional vocals shine on the album perfectly capturing the soul of Denver's music, "I've put my own touch on each track, but kept true to the uniqueness of John's creativity."
