Kansas – Carry On Wayward Son ft Kayla Reeves

By October 4, 2021No Comments

“Carry On Wayward Son” was the first major hit for Kansas and it features a very distinct intro with a capella vocals at the beginning of the song.

Can you think of any other well-known songs that feature a capella vocals in the intro? Share with me in the comments!

Similarly to “Dust In The Wind”, the song ended up being a last minute addition to the album and when Kerry Livgren shared it with the band they knew instantly it would be a hit.

The song also apparently saved the band as due their previous inability to get serious radio airplay, producer Don Kirshner had given them one last chance to either produce a hit record, or be dropped by the label.

We hope you enjoy Kayla’s version of the song and please let us know what you thought!
