“We are thrilled with the incredible reaction to our video for ‘I’ll Fly Away,'” said Melody Williamson. “We all love the song and have sung it since we were toddlers. The overwhelming public response to it is just the latest in an exciting stream of events for us this year.”
The cover of the song features all three sisters from Williamson Branch (Melody, Kadence and Caroline) performing a stripped down version of “I’ll Fly Away” in front of a scenic church.
