'Take Me Home, Country Roads' Bluegrass Performance From Southern Raised

Take a step back in time as the Southern Raised bluegrass band performs ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads.’

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”

Southern Raised is comprised of siblings Lindsay, Sarah, Emily and Matt. The group was raised in the Ozark Mountains and they have blended their traditional music upbringing with multiple genres and their deep-rooted faith.

Today, they are taking on ‘Take Me Home, Country Roads’ and it is the perfect fit for this musical family. Just listen as they belt out these iconic words set against a stunning backdrop of trees and field.

“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 am instantly transported back in time. What a beautiful reminder of the beauty that God has created all around us. He truly took His time making every single detail of this Earth and it is such a blessing to witness His handiwork in person. What is the most beautiful sight you have seen?
