Way up to clinch mountain One very famous ballad that was enjoyed in the 17th century is 'Way Up on Clinch Mountain' and it was first released by the Stanley brothers and the Cinch Mountain Boys in 1958. The tune is a folksong that was recorded by “Rye Whiskey” and features in Carl Sandburg's American Song bag. You would find the song credited to him with the infusion of variants made possible by the Bang Bang Lulu. Another remarkable version that made the song shoot straight to the top is the version from the Carter Family. They could literally be defined as the ones that immortalized the song. Some of the other artist that covered the song include Peggy and Mike Seeger, Douglas Dillard, Bluegrass Etc., Clarence White and other artists.
