Who doesn’t love John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads”?
It’s practically an American institution at this point.
Well, not only has it been heavily influential in American culture, but it transcends national borders!
Literally everyone and their mother has heard it – and love it! Naturally, so do we!
So if you’re looking for a sweet serenade, you’ve come to the right place.
Two incredible performers recently met up to cover Denver’s classic opus.
Angelic vocalist Emily Jones is joined by her handsome friend and guitarist, Luke Gallagher.
So where are they exactly?
Well, they’re not in West Virginia. And like Dorothy, they’re certainly not in Kansas.
In fact, this performance comes right out of Western Australia!
“Take me home, country roads”
Emily’s from Western Australia, but she’s not unfamiliar with the United States!
In fact, she’s traveled to the States to follow her dreams of becoming a country singer!
Though she’s continued to dabble more and more in American culture, she’s never abandoned her Australian roots.
People love her all over! And so do we!
She’s a global hit at this point!
Emily’s not only a singer with the voice of an Australian angel…
She’s also a songwriter!
The prolific singer-songwriter has a handful of amazing songs.
But that doesn’t stop her from dabbling in covers and the songs of other artists!
Like most vocalists, she deeply respects and learns from other all-time greats. John Denver is right up her alley – or road!
“Take Me Home, Country Roads” is one of her favorites. And it’s one of ours, too!
Emily and Luke play from the heart. And the results are glorious.
Country roads aren’t exactly the most habitable places for humans.
And they’re not usually the setting of a music video.
But these two make it work.
Actually, they make it more than work! They’re musical masters!
They’re putting on a virtual show for the entire world… from a random Australian trail!
Emily’s beautiful vocals continue atop cascading guitar plucks.
“To the place, where I belong”
Their performance is beyond captivating. John Denver would be proud.
In fact, their video already has over three million views on YouTube!
Emily had some legitimate concerns during the performance. At the end of the performance, you can even hear her allude to her fear of snakes!
“I felt like a snake was gonna come out and bite me.”
Well, we’re certainly glad that one didn’t!
The guitar chords and powerful vocal performances come to a soft finale.
“Take me home, country roads”
If there was an audience along their dirt road, they surely would have received phenomenal applause!
Anyway, what’d you think of Emily and Luke’s magnificent cover?
The country road background adds even more magic to John Denver’s renowned lyrics.
Before you go, make sure you check out their entire performance in the video player below!
Get ready to sing along to an American classic! Emily’s an amazing lead, so don’t be shy. She’ll be right there with you every step of the way.
And even if you’re nowhere near West Virginia, John Dever will take ya there!
