'Man Of Constant Sorrow' Cover From Jimmy Fortune, Bradley Walker And More

The talented voices of Jimmy Fortune, Bradley Walker, Mike Rogers, Ben Isaacs sing the classic folk song ‘Man Of Constant Sorrow.’


This familiar tune was first published around 1913 by Dick Burnett, a partially blind fiddler. Over the years, many famous artists have covered the song including Bob Dylan, The Stanley Brothers and Peter, Paul and Mary.

But in 2000, ‘Man Of Constant Sorrow’ returned to the music charts after being heavily featured in the George Clooney movie ‘O Brother Where Art Thou?’ The song sold over a million copies and went on to win a Country Music Award for Single of the Year in 2001 and a Grammy for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals in 2002.

“I am a man of constant sorrow,
I've seen trouble all my days.
I bid farewell to old Kentucky,
The place where I was born and raised”

Today, the incredible ensemble of Jimmy Fortune, Bradley Walker, Mike Rogers, Ben Isaacs are putting their spin on ‘Man Of Constant Sorrow’ and it’s a performance you don’t want to miss. Filmed in Columbia, Tennessee, just listen as this quartet belts out the iconic lyrics.

“Maybe your friends think
I'm just a stranger
My face you'll never see no more
But, there is one promise that is given,
I'll meet you on God's golden shore.”

This folk song has been around for over a century and it continues to find a place in each time period. I have no doubt that this American classic will truly stand the test of time.
