Today in Heritage History, June 7, 1974, John Denver’s, Thank God I’m a Country Boy reaches #1 on Billboard’s Top 100. Denver was unable to duplicate the huge success of the song until October 12, 1997 when his hit song I Wish I Was a Bird Right Now, Instead of Just a (fucking) Country Boy, crashed onto the Billboard charts and remained there for about…. 20 minutes.
