The Texas Tenors Stunning John Denver Medley on Larry’s Country Diner
An unbelievably talented, award-winning trio, The Texas Tenors, turned in a lovely medley of John Denver’s most memorable and beloved hits on Larry’s Country Diner.
Decades after his death, singer-songwriter John Denver’s work remains popular. John’s melodic and soothing voice and beautifully written words make his songs a treat to listen to every single time. He is easily one of the most influential and recognizable singer-songwriters ever.
Not only are John’s original versions immensely enjoyable, but other musicians have churned out a few pleasant covers. This includes one recent performance from The Texas Tenors.
In a clip posted on YouTube, the 3-time Emmy Award-winning group appeared on Larry’s Country Diner. The guys thrilled the audience with a masterful musical mashup of John Denver’s most recognizable songs.
Their short but thoroughly enjoyable performance begins with the guys belting out the lyrics to “Thank God I’m a Country Boy.” Next, after a few verses of the 1970 song about living down on the farm, they seamlessly transition into arguably John’s most popular song: “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”
“Country roads, take me home
To the place I belong
West Virginia, Mountain Mama
Take me home, country roads”
The guys’ harmonies are outstanding as they demonstrate their incredible level of musical talent. There isn’t a missed or flat note throughout the entire 3-minute clip.
The guys even manage to get the audience in on their performance. After requesting that everyone get involved and “sing along with us,” the entire diner is clapping along and mouthing the lyrics.
Even those who aren’t big country music or bluegrass fans still love themselves some John Denver. At the bare minimum, they appreciate his hits, even if they aren’t familiar with any other John Denver songs.
Who doesn’t love the simple but memorable lyrics and melody of “Take Me Home, Country Roads?”
Colossians 3:16 “Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.”
