Oh brother where art thou is hands down my favorite movie.

Which would make sense as to why i have been listening this video of Dr. Ralph Stanley, aged 82, singing “O Death” a cappella at the Hills of Home festival near Clintwood VA in May 2008. On the hillside behind him lies the grave of his brother, the great Carter Stanley, as he petitions the grim reaper to spare him over till another year; on repeat:

hit play and keep browsing my site you wont regret it…his voice is chilling and amazing!
