This won “Song of the Year” at the 1975 Country Music Association awards. Its writer/performer, John Denver, was also named “Entertainer of the Year” at the same ceremony, prompting the presenter, country star Charlie Rich, to pull out his lighter and light the envelope on fire after announcing Denver had won in an apparent insult to Denver’s musical style and image. Talk about a burn!  This is a cover of “Back Home Again”.
