In honor of Ralph Stanley, the Grand Ole Opry released a video of him performing “Man of Constant Sorrow” on the famous stage.
Lately, Stanley was best known “Man of Constant Sorrow,” and his work on the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, but even before he won a GRAMMY for “O Death,” another song he performed for the soundtrack, Stanley was making waves in the bluegrass genre.
He was a member of the Bluegrass Hall of Fame and the Grand Ole Opry. The Library of Congress presented him with a Living Legend award in 2000.
