Additional Bowden Comments
Wow, all contestants knew this one! I’m happy Dan T. acquired all this fame. I used to run into Dan and his brother Stan, who were known as Green Mountain Bluegrass, when I was a young man performing around New England.
George Clooney actually did tell the movie directors that he wanted to sing in the movie but he was overruled.
John Hartford provided some fiddle music and a few of his band members for the movie soundtrack and resultant CD. He was invited to play the “fiddling fool” in one of the last scenes in the movie, but he declined.
Ralph Stanley II (aka “Two”) played no part in the movie or CD, but his dad Dr. Ralph Stanley got a huge jolt of fame from singing “O Death” for the flaming cross scene sound track (he was not the robed singer!).
Russell Moore is a fine singer, but had no role in the movie or sound track.
The next trivia question I send in will have to be a little harder.
