ASPEN, Colo. (AP) A larger-than-life bronze statue of John Denver is being moved from property he donated for a foundation near Aspen to the Colorado Music Hall of Fame in Denver.

The Windstar Land Conservancy and Rocky Mountain Institute sold the property for $8 million, so the statue had to be moved.

The Aspen Times reports Denver was the first person inducted into the Colorado Hall of Fame when it was formed in 2011. He plays a prominent part in the displays.
