I don't have HBO - who's singing "Way Down in the Hole" this season?

Steve Earle this year.


I can't say the Steve Earle version really does it for me. The Neville Brothers and the Blind Boys of Alabama did it best.

Who sang :Way Down In the Hole" for season 4?



Baltimore Boys Choir sung Way Down In The Hole foe season 4.
