Country Roads

if you were born in the 70's you remember John Denver....bowl cut, country boy,glasses and most of all you remember him on the Muppets Show singing along with Kermit the Frog. But did you know that there might be a cult revival of his songs happening. We went to our nieces 8th grade graduation last night and for one of there theme songs they sang country roads by john denver...not "time of your life" by green day, which they originally picked. Now picture this, parents were asked to sing along, the roof was shaking and people were really getting into this husband just sat there staring at me, apparently he did not even know the song. I knew every word. My dad listened to a lot of country when I was a kid, Alabama, Roger Williams, Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings...and a little bit of John Denver. That was some pretty cool times last night.
