Tune Time – Take Me Home, Country Roads

I’m not the biggest John Denver fan, but I really love this song that became a huge hit in 1971. My husband and his band (he jams every week with some friends, and they play at private gatherings occasionally) played this song by request at a party they were invited to perform at a few months ago. I was very surprised when they started up this tune because it had been years since I’d heard it. Needless to say, I’ve been listening to it regularly ever since. There’s just something very special about it.

Incidentally, this song always brings to mind one of my favourite bloggers, Beth, who is the author of “Blue Ridge Blue Collar Girl”. Because of the Blue Ridge Mountains mentioned in the song.

Oh, and hubby is the lead guitarist and one of two singers in the band. Cool, huh? You gotta love a man that plays guitar and sings.
