'Take Me Home, Country Roads': Russell Moore Has the Mountain Stage Song of the Week

Mar 26, 2020

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.

Christopher Paul Stelling, Dom Flemons, Russell Moore, Peter Mulvey and The Small Glories gather for a final song on this week's episode. Tune in starting Friday March 27 on NPR Music stations across the country.
