"Getting asked by the John Denver estate to put a new spin on this song was just incredible,” recalls Blanco in a press statement. “I remember hearing this song at football games and it always had that big anthem feel. When the estate shared the original tracks, I could hear John’s banter before and after, so I really got a feel of what John was feeling when he sang this hit. I just love this song and we got to toss some 808 beats and high hats on it to give it a whole new energy.”
