The name Soggy Bottom Boys is possibly a reference to the famous Foggy Mountain Boys, a West Virginia bluegrass band of the s 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. However, "I'll Fly Away" in the original soundtrack is performed not by Krauss and Welch as it is on the CD release and was on the concert tour but by the inimitable Kossoy Sisters with Erik Darling of The Weavers, Tarriers and Rooftop Singers accompanying on long-neck 5-string banjo. Two of the variations feature the verses being sung back-to-back, and the other three variations feature additional music between each verse.
