Country Roads

The fan favorite theme song of West Virginia University, “Take Me Home Country Roads,” has been performed at every home football pregame show since 1972. The song is also played after every home win and fans are encouraged to stay in the stands and join in singing “Country Roads.”

In 1980, John Denver performed his hit song during pregame festivities to a sold-out crowd of Mountaineer fans. His performance of “Country Roads” marked the dedication of Mountaineer Field and the first game for head coach Don Nehlen.
