Have you seen the new Forever Country video produced for the 50th CMA awards?

 

It's a medley/mashup of three classics, "On the Road Again", "Country Roads" and "I Will Always Love You" staring 30 country stars of the past and present, all of them CMA award winners. Pretty cool video.

I liked "Country Roads" when it was released but not all country singers in the industry were crazy about the song or consider John Denver to be country enough. Charlie Rich, during a network live broadcast, actually took his cigarette lighter while standing at the podium and burned the paper that he had just read which announced John Denver as winner of a category at the CMA's (Denver was not present to receive the award). Ironic that they would choose that song for this video but I suppose times and views have changed.
