Half of the bluegrass duo the Stanley brothers,
Ralph may now be best known for his original recording of "I'm A Man
Of Constant Sorrow", which was later re-popularized thanks to the 2001
O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack, on which he, along with The Stanley Brothers'
"Angel Band" and "O Death", also appears. Ralph continues performing to this
day under the brothers' original moniker, The Clinch Mountain Boys, and
just released his first solo album.
