Day 340 - John Denver - Take Me Home, Country Roads

DAY 340
John Denver – "Take Me Home, Country Roads”
From "Poems, Prayers and Promises"

It just kinda hit me tonight that there may be a connection between my obsession for Eliis Paul's music and John Denver. They are both incredible lyricists. They are amazing story tellers. And they both have angelic voices.

I was raised on artists like John Denver even while still in my Mama's womb. My Mom is a HUGE John Denver fan. I don't know that I always appreciate John's music when I was younger but I have always had a soft spot for his music and am a big fan now for sure. It is comforting and reminds me of my Mom. :)

"Take Me Home, Country Roads" is a great story, a great arrangement, and a very true blue kind of folky country tune. This song is just excellent.

Check out the song on this YouTube clip.
