The American Film Institute recently awarded George Clooney with a Lifetime Achievement Award, and the ceremony was attended by many famous faces. One of the highlights of the event was Miley Cyrus’ performance of “I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow,” a song that holds a special significance for Clooney as he had lip-synced it in the 2000 Coen brothers film “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”. Despite being older than his wife Amal, who is a lawyer, Clooney’s legacy in Hollywood remains unrivaled.
The American Film Institute recently honored George Clooney for his remarkable contributions to the film industry in a grand ceremony held last Thursday. The event was filled with many memorable moments, one of which was the musical performance by Miley Cyrus and a group of male musicians dressed in rustic apparel. Miley looked stunning in her attire, featuring high-waisted black and white pinstripe pants paired with an elegantly crumpled white shirt that was tucked in while leaving a few buttons undone to showcase her exquisite necklaces. To enhance her appearance, she styled her blonde hair in a way that perfectly complemented her face and completed her look with a pageboy cap.
As per a tweet from the American Film Institute, Miley Cyrus performed “I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow” at the Dolby Theatre in Los Angeles not long ago.
At 57 years old, George is 17 years older than his stunning lawyer wife Amal. Fans were thrilled when he recently mimed along to a tune from his 2000 movie O Brother, Where Art Thou?, directed by the Coen brothers.
Miley Cyrus set the crowd on fire accompanied by a posse of male musicians dressed in western-inspired outfits. The artist flaunted a stunning pair of high-waisted black and white pinstripe pants, giving her ensemble an edgy touch.
A stylish young lady chose to wear a white shirt with a relaxed look, leaving some buttons open to showcase her collection of necklaces. In the background, she was caught mingling with the famous Bill Murray, who had starred alongside George in three successful movies – The Monuments Men, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and A Very Murray Christmas. Miley Cyrus and Bill were captured sipping on some lemon iced drinks while sitting beside a table that had a bottle of Belvedere vodka. They were also snapped enjoying the company of two beloved TV personalities, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox, who both starred in the highly acclaimed Friends show from the 90s.
Billy Ray Cyrus’ daughter with blonde hair had a chic approach to hairstyling – she gathered only a portion of her hair and allowed the rest to cascade around her face. To enhance her effortless appearance, she accessorized with a pageboy cap, which added a touch of fashion-forwardness to her look.
During her time behind the scenes, Swank was spotted chatting away with none other than Bill Murray. The dynamic duo have shared the silver screen on more than one occasion, starring in movies such as The Monuments Men, Fantastic Mr. Fox, and A Very Murray Christmas.
Sofia Coppola, an acclaimed director and daughter of Francis Ford Coppola, directed the 2015 movie musical, A Very Murray Christmas. Co-written by Bill Murray, this project brought together some of Hollywood’s most talented individuals. Among them was George Clooney, who has a close friendship with Brad Pitt, the actor who famously left Jennifer Aniston to marry Angelina Jolie. Interestingly, both Jennifer and George have worked together before in the 1998 film, Waiting For Woody, which was directed by George’s frequent collaborator, Grant Heslov. Although they have collaborated on several movies, including the Ocean’s trilogy, Brad Pitt was not seen at the recent AFI tribute honoring George on Thursday evening.

A group of four individuals were captured in a snapshot while spending time with the renowned television celebrities, Jennifer Aniston and Courteney Cox. These talented actresses were widely recognized for their prominent roles in the popular 90s sitcom, Friends.
George was celebrated at the AFI tribute event on Thursday evening, although Brad Pitt was noticeably absent despite being George’s former co-star in the Ocean’s trilogy. In 2009, Roald Dahl’s beloved children’s book, Fantastic Mr. Fox, was brought to life through animation in a movie directed by Wes Anderson. George wrote and directed the 2014 World War II drama film, The Monuments Men, which was based on a nonfiction book of the same name. A Very Murray Christmas, a 2015 movie musical, was co-written by Bill Murray and directed by Sofia Coppola, the daughter of Francis Ford Coppola who won an Oscar for screenwriting. The American folk song, I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow, was originally published in 1913 by a blind travelling fiddler named Dick Burnett. The song has been recorded by many musicians over the years, including The Stanley Brothers, Bob Dylan, and Joan Baez, each of whom added their own unique twist to it.
In 1913, a fiddler named Dick Burnett, who was visually impaired, released the iconic American folk song “I Am A Man Of Constant Sorrow.” Ever since then, various musicians have put their spin on this timeless melody.
Shall we take a moment to discuss Miley Cyrus and her music? I want to bring up a particular song called “It” that has been covered by various artists including The Stanley Brothers, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez.
The movie “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” features George’s character teaming up with two fellow prisoners to form a musical group known as The Soggy Bottom Boys. Their recorded song became a hit, but contrary to popular belief, the actors did not sing it themselves. The vocals were actually provided by three talented individuals – Dan Tyminski, Harley Allen, and Pat Enwright. This rendition of an old song even won a Grammy Award for Best Country Collaboration With Vocals. Meanwhile, Miley Cyrus, who is engaged to Liam Hemsworth, has yet to win a Grammy award despite being nominated in the Best Pop Vocal Album category for her 2013 release, Bangerz.
Did you know that the vocals in that scene were not performed by George, John Turturro, and Tim Blake Nelson? It may come as a shock, but the singing was actually done by Dan Tyminski, Harley Allen, and Pat Enwright.
Let’s take a moment to give a big hand to Dan, Harley, and Pat for their amazing interpretation of a timeless tune that has been enjoyed for a century. They really knocked it out of the park, and even walked away with the prestigious Grammy Award for their outstanding work on the Best Country Collaboration with Vocals.
