Discumentary: "O Brother, Where Art Thou?" Soundtrack


In order to properly set their revision of Homer's "Odyssey" in the American South in the 1930's, The Coen Brothers needed the right man for the job. They found it in T Bone Burnett who recruited John Hartford, Ralph Stanley, Alison Krauss, Gillian Welch and many more to recreate songs from the era. The result was an unexpected smash success and winner of the Album of the Year Grammy Award.
