Cotton Pickin' Kids Perform Classic Hymn 'I'll Fly Away'

Toe-tap along as The Cotton Pickin’ Kids perform the classic hymn ‘I’ll Fly Away.’

This beloved song was written in 1929 by Albert E. Brumley. It was published in 1932 and became a hymn frequently performed in church services all over the world.

In fact, the song has even been called one of the most recorded gospel songs of all time with notable covers from Alison Krauss and Alan Jackson.

Albert was picking cotton on his family farm when the words to the classic hymn came into his mind. From that moment, it took Albert three more years to complete the iconic song.

“Some bright morning when this life is over, I'll fly away
To that home on God's celestial shore, I'll fly away
I'll fly away, oh glory. I'll fly away in the morning
When I die, Hallelujah by and by, I'll fly away”

Today, this talented bluegrass family band is putting their own spin on ‘I’ll Fly Away.’ Time and time again, The Cotton Pickin’ Kids have blessed us with their beautiful covers and unique sound.

Now, they’re taking on a true classic and you don’t want to miss a moment.

“Just a few more weary days and then
I'll fly away
To a land where joy shall never end
I'll fly away”

Viewers all around the world enjoy the sounds of this Christian family. One person said, “I’m gonna fly away just listening to this angelic bluegrass from the CPK.”

What a blessing to hear this young family praise our Lord.

Ephesians 5:20 “Giving thanks always for all things to God and the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ”
