'Rocky Top' Bluegrass Performance From The Petersens Family Band

'Rocky Top' Bluegrass Performance From The Petersens Family Band

Toe-tap along as The Petersens perform one of the most iconic bluegrass songs of all time, ‘Rocky Top.’ This classic tune was originally recorded by the Osborne Brothers in 1967. The lyrics remind us of a simpler time of life without modern technology.

“Wish that I was on ol' Rocky Top
Down in the Tennessee hills
Ain't no smoggy smoke on Rocky Top
Ain't no telephone bills”

The Petersens are a family band from Branson, Missouri. This bluegrass ensemble has traveled all around the world sharing their musical talents, but you can normally find them at home in Branson.

For ten seasons, The Petersens have performed at the Little Opry Theatre in the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex.

Today, they are taking on a bluegrass classic with ‘Rocky Top.’ Just listen as they belt out these iconic words that have truly stood the test of time.

“Rocky Top, you'll always be
Home sweet home to me
Good ol' Rocky Top
Rocky Top, Tennessee, Rocky Top, Tennessee”

On YouTube, the band wrote about the inspiration behind recording this bluegrass tune. “With the recent passing of Sonny Osborne, we wanted to honor him and show our appreciation for all that he contributed to the music we love.”

I think Sonny would be honored to hear this family band carry on the bluegrass tradition. What song do you want to hear next from The Petersens?

Psalm 24:1 “A Psalm of David. The earth is the LORD's and the fullness thereof, the world and those who dwell therein.”
