Ever since singer, songwriter, and adventurer Rick Schuler wore his first pair of round glasses at age 13, the murmurs began. It was undeniable, he looked like John Denver, an artist he’d never heard of until that moment. It was during an era when the music of John Denver permeated the airwaves with sweetness and sunshine, a salve to the wounded and weary soldiers returning home unloved from an unpopular war. “John Denver was the biggest star in the world, and I didn’t have any idea who he was,” says Schuler, who quickly discovered that Denver was the guy on the radio whose music he loved. “I was a very shy kid, and John and I kind of became bonded. I taught myself to play guitar and it grew from there.”

Nearly four decades later, Schuler has emerged as the leading performer of John Denver’s music. His ROCKY MOUNTAIN HIGH EXPERIENCE® is just that, a true, intimate experience. Schuler performs in front of thousands of Denver fans each year singing favorite hits such as “Sunshine on My Shoulders,” “Take Me Home Country Roads,” “You Fill Up My Senses,” and “Thank God I’m a Country Boy.”

This show will captivate audiences and offer an unforgettable experience celebrating the life and music of John Denver. Even Denver’s bandmates sing Rick’s praises. Schuler not only sings, sounds, and looks like Denver, he shares his humanitarian spirit and incorporates his global works into the show. Also, Rick was chosen to open and close an upcoming major Hollywood film release called “Grace and Grit” starring Mena Suvari and Frances Fisher among others and directed by Sebastian Siegel.

I'm a 40-year-old father blessed with two wonderful children: a 13-year-old daughter and a 10-year-old son. My life revolves around my beautiful wife, who is the cornerstone of our family. Without her unwavering support, none of what I do would be possible. By day, I serve as a network administrator for a local school district, ensuring smooth operations in the realm of technology. During the evenings, you'll often find me engrossed in various creative pursuits, from illustrating books to crafting websites or composing music. But above all, my priority is spending quality time with my kids. Parenthood has been a profound journey of growth and discovery for me, and now, armed with a keyboard instead of a pen, I'm eager to share my experiences and insights with others.
