Singer/songwriter John Denver was an avid skier. While riding in a ski lift in Switzerland, he wrote one of his best-known songs, "Annie's Song." Riding alone, Denver took in the beautiful sights and sounds of the mountainside and combined that with his feelings for his wife, Ann Martell, with whom he'd just reconciled. Produced by Milt Okun, "Annie's Song" sold more than a million copies, staying at number one pop for two weeks and number one adult contemporary for three weeks in the summer of 1974. The song became a wedding song standard and was included on his gold LP Back Home Again, which went to number one pop and yielded the Top Five pop title track single.
