On April 2, ATO will release “The Music Is You: A Tribute To John Denver.”
Dave Matthews, My Morning Jacket, Train, Brandi Carlile, Emmylou Harris, Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros and Josh Ritter are among the artists paying homage to the folky musician, who died in 1997 in a plane accident.

While the full album won”t be out for two months, ATO has released snippets of several songs. My Morning Jacket”s “Leaving on a Jet Plane” borrows heavily from Peter, Paul & Mary”s hit version of the song with male and female voices intertwining. Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic put their own spin on “Wooden Indian.”
Carlile and Harris”s voices intertwine beautifully on “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” and Old Crow Medicine Show are faithful to Denver in their rendition of “Back Home Again.”
Below the soundcloud is the full track listing.
