WATCH: John Denver - "Country Roads" live at Mountaineer Field, 1980

On June 20, 1863, West Virginia became the thirty-fifth state in the Union. Every year it is worth celebrating. And though I'm not the biggest fan of "Country Roads," almost everyone else is - and it is, in fact, the State Song. So here is a short clip of the songwriter himself John Denver performing the song at Mountaineer Field in 1980. (Via Josh Exline.)

Happy Birthday, West Virginia.
