Watch Country’s Greats Pay Tribute To Genre In ‘Forever Country’ Music Video Featuring Willie Nelson, Dolly Parton & John Denver Mash-Up
If you could pick three country classics that have paved the way for the new wave of modern country musicians, chances are you’d pick from the iconic bodies of work created by the legendary John Denver, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton. That’s exactly what the Country Music Association thought when they decided to celebrate the 50th Annual CMA Awards back in 2016.
Given the boom of country music stars, the Country Music Association decided to recruit 30 former CMA Award winners to sing a stellar mashup of three of country music’s most cherished songs: John Denver’s “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” Willie Nelson’s “On The Road Again,” and Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You.” The mash-up is titled “Forever Country,” and features an impressive line-up of Country greats, including Alabama, George Strait, Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, Travis, Reba McEntire, Willie Nelson, and Dolly Parton. Some of the modern country stars include Luke Bryan, Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood, Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, and Brad Paisley.
If you love country music, then you will be sure to get nostalgic at the touching medley that is beautifully done – from both a music and production standpoint. The talent and the visuals are so stunning that it will make you want to take that country road and head on home – even if you’re not from West Virginia! Many of us have a little “mountain mama” in us!
