In Their Words: “Country Roads? Never heard of her. The truest anthem for West Virginians, especially for those of us who left home, is and always will be ‘West Virginia My Home.’ Hazel’s melancholy ballad about love and loss of place is as timeless as it is beautiful. I discovered this song when I first moved away from West Virginia over ten years ago, and it has followed me ever since. I performed this song right before moving to Nashville with a crew of some of my favorite Brooklyn-based musicians and dear friends. This recording reminds me of the community and friendships I forged in my time in New York City, and of my deep roots back in West Virginia.” — Olivia Ellen Lloyd
