Thank God Im A Country Boy (John Denver) by West&Coast Band

“Thank God I’m a Country Boy” is a song written by John Martin Sommers and recorded by singer/songwriter John Denver. The song was originally included on Denver’s 1974 album Back Home Again. A version recorded live at the Universal Amphitheatre in Los Angeles was included on his 1975 album An Evening With John Denver. The live version was released as a single and went to No. 1 on both the Billboard magazine Hot Country Singles and Billboard Hot 100 charts. The song topped both charts for one week each, first the country chart (on May 31), and the Hot 100 chart a week later. “Thank God I’m a Country Boy” was one of six songs released in 1975 that topped both the Billboard Hot 100 and Billboard Hot Country Singles charts. Denver’s two-sided hit “I’m Sorry”/”Calypso” also enjoyed that distinction. This cover has been performed live by West&Coast Band last year in Ancona (Italy)
