Farm Aid YouTube Channel
Music icon John Denver, commonly known for his classic “Take Me Home, Country Roads,” rocked the stage at Farm Aid back in 1985. Farm Aid is a benefit concert initiated back in the mid 80s to raise substantial funds for American farmers who struggle with mortgage debt and hardships affiliated with the job.
A lively Denver took to the heavily attended venue and treated longtime fans, as well as newcomers, to a live performance of his wild number “Thank God I’m A Country Boy” with country-folk group Nitty Gritty Dirt Band! With the groundbreaking band playing backup, these icons made for an enjoyable concert!
Denver sang a song of appreciation for the simple life, such as raising a family and working on his farm. The down to earth song with an exceptionally upbeat tune not only conveys a message of embracing a humble lifestyle, but also allows for a cheerful dancing beat!
