“Country Roads” by John Denver is very popular in Morgantown, West Virginia. It’s actually very popular in the entire state, but if you ask any Mountaineer fan, it’s their song.
Prior to the Mountaineers’ big win over Maryland on Saturday, country music star Brad Paisley took center stage at midfield to sing the national anthem. If you didn’t think he was going to sing the Mountaineers’ unofficial school song, then you’re absolutely crazy.
This performance inspired the Mountaineers to go on to win the game 48-6 and prove their place in the Big 12. Their win also landed them a spot in the AP Top 25 for the first time this season.
The song is really kind of infectious and it’s almost guaranteed to be played whenever a superstar is in or around Morgantown.
