Hermes House Band, you really did a great cover in my opinion...John Denver would not have minded at all.. It is great for in a wedding to sing to especially with the rhythm attached to the song...

Jason and the Scorchers version, that's the cover that should be going head-to-head here.

Toots and the Maytals has a very solid version of this song as well. I still like the original better, but it's good.

Daryle Singletary did a really nice version of this song. Who ever even heard of Hermes House Band anyway?

Hermes House Band Rocks. I like their version.

Terry from El Paso is obviously on the Hermes House Band Street Team.

In fact, Terry's comment might as well be a Google Ad.

Nevertheless, it's a landslide for Mr. Denver.

Frankly, I believe this entry was created as comedy relief. It cannot possibly be a serious vote.

Can it?

Hermes House Band??? - Is this some kind of joke? What about the Olivia Newton John version - now that is a decent cover. I'd say better than the original.

For a rip-roaring version, try Jason and the Schorchers take from "A Blazing Grace."

I thought it was sacrilege to the memory of John Denver to do this song.
Then I listened to the beat and the rhythm, and now, I cant stop listening to it.
I have it on a loop on my I-POD. Before now I had never heard of Hermes House band
Now, I want more….WELL DONE

That is just sad. The Herpes House Band doesn't stand a chance against good old John Denver classic hits like this.
