Wow! The Carter Family has left us speechless after watching their beautiful performance of "Will The Circle Be Unbroken (Bye And Bye)". 

In 1935, the original members of The Carter Family (A.P. Carter, Sara Carter and Maybelle Carter) recorded the classic song, "Will The Circle Be Unbroken (Bye And Bye)" at the ARC Studios in New York City. The song was based on the gospel hymn of the same name, although The Carter Family originally changed the words from "will" to "can". The song was a huge success for The Carter Family, gaining lots of attention over the years and eventually leading to covers by legendary artists like Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson (just to name a few!). 

In 2006, in honor of the Grand Ole Opry's 80th birthday, country music legends gathered to perform a special rendition of the classic tune (along with other gospel medleys) at Carnegie Hall in New York. The performance included Alan Jackson, Vince Gill, Brad Paisley, Charley Pride, and so many more! The video below is the awesome tribute- prepare to be amazed! 

And don't forget to watch the breathtaking performance of "Will The Circle Be Unbroken (Bye And Bye)" by The Carter Family, and trust us, you'll be blown away!

was standing by the window
On a dark and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
For to carry my mother away

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Lord, I told the undertaker, undertaker
Please drive slow
For this body you are holding Lord
Lord, I hate to see her go

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

I followed close behind her
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid her in the grave

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky

Went that home Lord, my home was lonesome
Yes my mother she was gone
All my brothers, sisters cryin'
What a home to sit alone

Can the circle be unbroken
By and by, Lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky, Lord, in the sky
