Brown releases rendition of “Take Me Home, Country Roads”
Eleven-time platinum country recording artist Blanco Brown steers John Denver’s classic hit “Take Me Home, Country Roads” through his signature “TrailerTrap” lane on his latest Wheelhouse Records release available now. This track marks a momentous tribute to the late, great John Denver that was a personal request from his estate and showcases Blanco’s profound appreciation for the timeless song that has resonated with generations of music enthusiasts.
“Getting asked by the John Denver estate to put a new spin on this song was just incredible,” recalls Blanco. “I remember hearing this song at football games and it always had that big anthem feel. When the estate shared the original tracks, I could hear John’s banter before and after, so I really got a feel of what John was feeling when he sang this hit. I just love this song and we got to toss some 808 beats and high hats on it to give it a whole new energy.”
Breathing new life into a beloved classic and infusing it with a fresh and modern twist, his soulful and unique interpretation combines elements of country, hip-hop, and R&B, creating a musical fusion that will connect with audiences across economic and environmental backgrounds worldwide. Brown’s smooth, heartfelt vocals and innovative production techniques pay homage to the original while adding his signature contemporary flair.
This release is a testament to Brown’s artistry and his commitment to preserving the rich heritage of country music while bringing it into a new era.
