Rocky Mountain High is the sixth studio album from singer-songwriter John Denver. It was his first Top 10 album thanks to the single “Rocky Mountain High.” The song was primarily inspired by John Denver’s move to Aspen, Colorado, three years before its writing and by his love for the state. Today, “Rocky Mountain High” is one of the two official state songs of Colorado. The other is “Where the Columbines Grow.”
