Take Me Home, Clopper Road???
“Take Me Home, Country Roads” was inspired by Clopper Road!
Bill Danoff was inspired to write “Take Me Home, Country Roads” as he drove on Clopper Road in Gaithersburg (then a country road) on his way to a family reunion. He and John Denver sang the song together the next night and recorded it the following Monday.
