Musical Family Sings 'Take Me Home Country Roads' During Quarantine

The family band, Colt Clark and the Quarantine Kids, delight us with their rousing rendition of ‘Take Me Home Country Roads.’


This classic song was written by John Denver back in 1971. After it’s release, the nostalgic song became an instant hit for Denver. The entire tune is an ode to the great state of West Virginia and you can’t 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”

Today, we’re hearing a very special rendition of this classic from The Clark Family. Colt Clark is a musician and family man from Tampa, Florida. But when shelter-at-home orders were given during the COVID-19 health crisis, it meant Colt Clark was out of work.

Rather than look at the negative, Colt saw a unique opportunity with his kids. Father to Cash, Beckett, and Bellamy, Colt decided to get the whole family together and start a band. Even Mom gets in on the action as the woman behind the camera.

Just listen as they sing their heart out to this iconic tune.

“Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, mountain mama
Take me home, country roads”

Whenever I hear these words, I’m instantly transported back in time. And during these moments of fear and anxiety throughout the world, it’s so amazing to see a family come together and create something beautiful.
