Biography

The voices behind the Soggy Bottom Boys are well-known bluegrass musicians: Union Station’s Dan Tyminski (lead on “Man of Constant Sorrow”), Nashville songwriter Harley Allen, and the Nashville Bluegrass Band’s Pat Enright. The three won a CMA Award for Single of the Year and a Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals, both for the song “I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow.” The song, by Dick Burnett had already enjoyed much success in real life.()

Tim Blake Nelson, playing Delmar O’Donnell in the movie (one of the Soggy Bottom Boys), sang the lead vocal himself for the song “In The Jailhouse Now” which was originally recorded (in real life) by Jimmie Rogers (In the Jailhouse Now).

The fact that the Soggy Bottom Boys are a fictitious group from the movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”, doesn’t make their hit single “Man of Constant Sorrow” any less amazing, winning the real-life Soggy Bottom Boys (Dan Tyminski, Harley Allen, and Pat Enright, not otherwise affiliated) a CMA Award for Single of the Year and a Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration with Vocals.
Jordan Rivers and the Soggy Bottom Boys are the fictitious Depression-era “ music” quartet and accompaniment from the movie O Brother, Where Art Thou? The name Soggy Bottom Boys is possibly a reference to the famous Foggy Mountain Boys, a West Virginia bluegrass band of the 1940s with Lester Flatt and Earl Scruggs, but also a humorous name given the two backup singers who were wet from being baptized earlier in the film.
