'Country Roads' gets push for W.Va. state song
CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Dreama Denver is making a push to have "Take Me Home, Country Roads" designated as one of West Virginia's official state songs.
The widow of actor Bob Denver says the song is sung at many important state events.
At her request, Raleigh County Delegate Marty Gearhart plans to introduce a resolution during the 2013 regular session that would designate the song as one of the state's official songs.
Dreama Denver tells the Charleston Gazette (http://bit.ly/UUaFpR ) that she hopes West Virginians will contact their legislators and urge them to approve the resolution.
West Virginia has three official state songs: "West Virginia Hills," ''This Is My West Virginia" and "West Virginia, My Home Sweet Home."
