"Let me tell you another funny story, New Jack. Back in '74 the great Charlie Rich was named country musician of the year. Then, in '75 he had to hand the award off to the new winner. And you know who that was? Mr. Sunshine on my GD shoulders, John Denver. Can you believe it? Replaced by John F-N Denver. Well I'll be dammed if Mr. Rich didn't pull out his cigarette lighter right there and light that award on fire in front of everyone."
