A Cappella 'Take Me Home, Country Roads' From Peter Hollens And Adam Chance - Inspirational Videos

Take a trip back in time with this a cappella rendition of ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ from Peter Hollens and Adam Chance. This classic song was written by John Denver back in 1971. After its release, the nostalgic song became an instant hit. Countless covers later, this song has officially cemented itself in musical history. The entire tune is an ode to the great state of West Virginia and you cannot help but picture those scenic skylines as you listen to the lyrics. “Almost heaven, West Virginia Blue Ridge Mountains, Shenandoah River Life is old there, older than the trees Younger than the mountains, blowing like a breeze” Peter Hollens became an instant social media star when he started to post a cappella cover songs of our favorite tunes such as ‘Mary Did You Know’ and ‘You Raise Me Up.’ Many of his videos went viral and now it’s his full-time job to make incredible a cappella musical arrangements of popular songs and powerful originals. Adam Chance is another a cappella sensation. You may recognize him as a member of Home Free, an a cappella group that won the fourth season of The Sing-Off on NBC in 2013. Today, these two distinct voices are coming together for a unique performance of ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads.’ “Country roads, take me home To the place I belong West Virginia, mountain mama Take me home, country roads” As I hear these words, I’m instantly transported back in time. What a sensational rendition of this beloved classic.
