Is this an episode of The Big Valley or a John Denver song?

The adventures of the Barkley brothers, their sister Audra and matriarch Victoria never fail to entertain. The ranching family from The Big Valley deals with outlaws, wild animals, the elements and more over the show’s four seasons. Some scenes are laugh out loud funny while others are deadly serious.

The titles of each episode reflect the creativity and variety that went into each installment. Speaking of creativity, country artist John Denver was more than just a singer, he was a true storyteller.

We’ve combined Denver’s songs with titles from select Big Valley episodes. Can you guess which is which?

Huge John Denver fan. Still listen to him all the time. Very few, at his time, could come close to equaling him. NO ONE today can even start to compare. The purity of his voice and the depth of feeling in his music simply can’t the duplicated. Like Sinatra, he was the pinnacle of being a performer. He left us far to soon.

Wholeheartedly agree with all that. John Denver was completely underrated as a singer and songwriter. His portfolio stands the test of time ... and you are so right about the depth of feeling in his voice/music. It can be hard to find, but as an example, check out John Denver's intrepretation of "Last Thing on My Mind" and compare to ANYONE else's.

John Denver is one of the most under appreciated singer/songwriters ever! I saw him at my very first concert at 12! Still a fan! He left us too soon
