Who was her father John Denver?

Henry John Deutschendorf Jr. was born in Roswell, New Mexico USA, on 31 December 1943, meaning that his zodiac sign was Capricorn. He remains remembered for his music; John released more than 35 studio albums and around 300 songs, 200 of which were composed by himself, while 33 of his albums were certified either gold or platinum by the Recording Industry Association of American (RIAA). John mostly wrote songs about the joy of nature, his love for music, and relationship trials.

He was raised in Roswell by his father Captain Henry John ‘Dutch’ Deutschendorf Sr. who passed away aged 62 in 1982, and mother Erma Louise (nee Swope) who died in 2010, aged 82; Captain Henry served as a pilot in the US Air Force.

John and his younger brother Ron were raised around the USA, as the family often moved because of their father’s job; John wasn’t happy because of this, as found it hard to make new friends. He studied at several school, eventually matriculating from Arlington Heights High School in 1962.

John was 11 when his grandmother gifted him an acoustic guitar, and it took him seven years to learn to play it well enough to often perform in local clubs. Even though he wanted to pursue music, John was persuaded by his father to enroll at Texas Tech University, but he dropped out after only a year, and moved to Los Angeles, California where he began singing in folk clubs.

He released his debut album “Rhymes & Reasons” in 1969 under RCA Records, and then two more in the following year, entitled “Whose Garden Was This” and “Take Me to Tomorrow”. He became famous with the release of his album “Poems, Prayers & Promises” in 1971, perhaps mostly thanks to its lead single “Take Me Home, Country Roads”, which peaked at #2 on the Billboard charts. John then went on to release a number of critically acclaimed albums in the remainder of the ‘70s, such as “Rocky Mountain High”, “Back Home Again” and “Windsong”.

John hosted the Grammys twice in the ‘80s, and because of his love for flying, was attracted to NASA; he was presented with a NASA Exceptional Public Service Medal in 1985. He toured around China in 1992, and two years later published his autobiography “Take Me Home”, in which he wrote about his use of various drugs, including cocaine and LSD, as well as about his marital infidelities. He married his second wife, Australian actress Cassandra Delaney in 1988, who gave birth to their daughter Jesse Belle, but they divorced in 1993, following a two-year separation.

John continued performing until 12 October 1997, when he crashed while piloting his light homebuilt plane Rutan Long-EZ. He had over 2,700 hours of flying experience and was considered a skilled pilot, however, he wasn’t legally permitted to fly at that time because he had been arrested for drunk driving on multiple occasions; it was later revealed that no traces of alcohol or drugs were found in his body; the suspicion was that he suicided.
