Russell Moore is the band leader for IIIrd Tyme Out, one of the most awarded groups in bluegrass history.

One of the most awarded groups in bluegrass history sings one of the Mountain State’s most beloved anthems.

While some presume that John Denver's iconic song "Take Me Home, Country Roads" has been performed on Mountain Stage many times over the years, it has only made a scant few appearances in our playlists. Here's the highly decorated bluegrass group Russell Moore & IIIrd Tyme Out, who closed out their set by honoring an audience request for the classic tune.
