Jam of the Day | Brandi Carlile and Emmylou Harris - Take Me Home, Country Roads

In the interest of full disclosure: I've never been much of a John Denver fan. However, when you pair Brandi Carlile and Emmylou Harris, you have my full, undivided attention. Which is why I'm writing about "Take Me Home, Country Roads," Denver's song that Carlile and Harris have no problem solving with their artistic gifts. It's part of The Music Is You: A Tribute To John Denver, which also features My Morning Jacket, Lucinda Williams, Kathleen Edwards, and Blind Pilot, to just name a few.

Also: Brandi Carlile will be performing at The Pageant in St. Louis on July 10th. Get your tickets now.


  1. THIS about fulfilled every childhood memory with every one of my biggest fan fantasies. Took me right back to the days with my dad in our back yard in rural Wisconsin with his JD recordings as he tinkered on his honda motorcycle dreaming it was a harley and he could drive it along the southern beaches HE knew as a kid :) My favorite singer of all time (Brandi of course) covering this reminiscent favorite, always a reminder of what really matters, just BROUGHT it home. :)

  2. Damn, that's hot!!

    Thanks dog.
