Take Me Home, Country Roads To Become An Official West Virginia State Song


Charleston, WV (PRWEB) March 05, 2014

A special resolution to make the John Denver hit Take Me Home, Country Roads an official West Virginia state song is expected to pass during the state legislative session this Friday.

Country Roads, which begins with the lyrics Almost Heaven, West Virginia was a huge million seller for singer John Denver and his co-writers Bill Danoff and Taffy Nivert.

A reception will be held Friday at 2pm at the lower rotunda of the State Capitol featuring Governor Earl Ray Tomblin and state legislators, musical performances from the Appalachian Childrens Chorus, students from Cabell Midland High School, and many more surprises.

Princeton, WV resident Dreama Denver, wife of the late television icon Bob Gilligan Denver, is not related to John Denver (whose real last name was Deutschendorf). But, as head of the Mercer County WV-based Denver Foundation, she began pushing for Take Me Home, Country Roads to become the states official song in 2012. It all began with an on-air chat with her Sunny Side Up show listeners on Little Buddy Radio 93.1 FM, which is heard around the world at http://www.littlebuddyradio.com.

Small Town Venues Gets Artists In Touch with Her Fans

Taking her cue from her lifelong passion for country music and legions of fans across the U.S., country musics fastest rising star, Carissa Leigh, embarks on her first summer acoustic tour which began with a performance in Los Angeles and now takes the classic country beauty to major cities across the United States. The tour celebrates Carissas debut EP “Not the Same Girl”, and gives audiences an opportunity to experience her newest music within the intimate settings of smaller local venues, a deliberate choice by the artist who wanted her fans to be able to get close and personal with every lyric acoustically. Carissa Leigh hasnt stopped making music since her first piano recital at age 3 and the tour is simply an extension of her years of writing of lifes own experiences which have uniquely spoken to women nationwide. To capture her country spirit, Leigh also counted on co-writers and country music notables Clay Mills, Brian White and Andrew Fromm and the creative genius of producer ToneDef (Green Day, Santana, Chris Isaak) which has yielded songs such as “Cant Help But Wonder”. Audiences will be the first to hear the newest, upbeat and raucous summer anthem along with a few wrenching love ballads that have given the music industry a reason to stand up and take note.

Already garnering accolades from producers, songwriters and promoters, Carissa Leigh has set her sights on music city Nashville and every city in between. She has drawn from her love of dance, which she is trained for in both ballet and traditional Polynesian dance, her passion for music and her life as a single mother. Carissa Leigh has pulled from her early influences which include such country legends as Shania Twain, Dolly Parton, Faith Hill, Gary Allen and Dolly Parton. Her songwriting has dug deep into her own life as a young mother, a traveler and experiences of love, loss, and moving on.

She grew up in Calgary, Canada before moving to Hawaii. It was there that she immersed herself into the musical traditions of the Pacific Island, which ironically have played a huge part in her signature country music sound. She later moved to New York and then returned to Canada as a mother of a young daughter. Her new music from her debut EP will be celebrated as she criss-crosses the U.S. armed with only her beloved Martin guitar and her sweet, sultry, sound that is about to set the Country music industry on fire.

Looking for country music artists to listen to?

Question by William: Looking for country music artists to listen to?
I’m lookin for not a particular type of country music. Lyrics that involve patriotism, the country lifestyle, and having a simple life. Not necassarily about tractors, pick up trucks, and redneck girls, which is the kind of the only country music that I hear. Actually any country music that isn’t about these things I’ll probably like. Just looking for some suggestions. Thanks!

For what you’re looking for, I would say Rodney Atkins, Darius Rucker, Zac Brown Band and Montgomery Gentry would all be good choices

Answer by Andrea
Jason Michael Carroll – Hurry Home

He’s been sitting by the phone since she left
But it’s time for work and he just can’t be late
So he grabs his old guitar
And he plays a couple bars on the machine
And then he softly sings

Chorus
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, I still love you
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been, you can still come home
And honey if it’s you, we’ve got a lot of making up to do
And I can’t hug you on the phone, so hurry home

Well the message light was blinking when he got back
It was an old friend calling cause he just heard the news
He says Man I hope you find her
If I see her I’ll remind her that her dad is worried
And want her to know

Chorus
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, I still love you
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been, you can still come home
And honey if it’s you, we’ve got a lot of making up to do
And I can’t hug you on the phone, so hurry home

Well the days dragged by without a word from her
And it looked like she might not be coming back
People said man don’t you think it’s time to take that old message off
He said no, you never know when she might call

She was just outside a bar in New York City
Her so-called friends had left her all alone
She was scared he wouldn’t want her
But she dialed up that old number and let it ring
And then she heard him sing

Chorus
It doesn’t matter what you’ve done, I still love you
It doesn’t matter where you’ve been, you can still come home
And honey if it’s you, we’ve got a lot of making up to do
And I can’t hug you on the phone, so hurry home

He walked in just in time to hear her say
Dad, I’m on my way
