Lana Del Rey Shares Cover Of John Denver's Classic 'Take Me Home, Country Roads'

Lana Del Rey recently shared a cover of John Denver‘s classic song “Take Me Home, Country Roads.”

Del Rey made the song with producer Zachary Dawes, reimagining the folksy 1971 song in her signature melancholic style.

“Take Me Home, Country Roads” is actually the second song to recently get a new Lana Del Rey spin. She also performed a rendition of the song “Unchained Melody,” made famous by The Righteous Brothers and later recorded by Elvis Presley, during NBC‘s “Christmas at Graceland” holiday special.

“Take Me Home, Country Roads,” also known simply as “Country Roads”, is a song written by Bill Danoff, Taffy Nivert and Denver. It was released as a single performed by Denver on April 12, 1971, peaking at No. 2 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the week ended August 28, 1971.

Meanwhile, last month, Del Rey received five Grammy nominations, including Album of the Year and Best Alterative Music Album for Did You Know That There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd?

Her song “A&W” was also nominated for Song of the Year and Best Alternative Music Performance, while “Candy Necklace” featuring Jon Batiste was nominated for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
