George Jones and Vestal Goodman paid tribute to the Stanley Brothers in the form of a moving cover of their powerful “Angel Band.”

Jones and Goodman took a gospel approach with a country twist in their cover as opposed to The Stanley Brother’s bluegrass version. Their music video for “Angel Band” features the two singing the powerful lyrics in a field alongside a young girl playing nearby holding a birdcage containing doves that gives her a sense of innocence.

Originally named “My Latest Sun is Sinking Fast,” “Angel Band” was brought to fame by the Stanley Brothers in their version released off their 2000 the O Brother, Where Art Thou? soundtrack.

However, the song was originally written as a poem by Jefferson Hascall in the late 19th century. The song transcends both time and genre with the most recent cover by London rock band Mumford & Suns.
