'Take Me Home, Country Roads' The Booth Brothers

'Take Me Home, Country Roads' The Booth Brothers

The Booth Brothers perform an incredible rendition of ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ that will truly transport you back in time.


This classic song was written by John Denver back in 1971. It became an instant hit for Denver. The entire tune is an ode to the great state of West Virginia.

“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”

Almost everyone knows these nostalgic lyrics. The words of the song paint a picture of a simpler time where back roads and long scenic views were all we needed. Nowadays, everyone in the world seems to always be in a hurry.

People move from one place to the next without taking time to pause and reflect on their surroundings. There’s something about open fields and dirt roads that allow us to stop and truly take in the beauty that God has created.

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

Today, the gospel trio of The Booth Brothers are putting their own spin on this classic song. For years, this gospel trio has lead worship with beautiful original songs and soul-filled covers.

Now, they are at the Gaither Studios for a live rendition of ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads.’ This is just the dose of country nostalgia that I needed today. Who else is going way back with this classic John Denver song?
