Daughters of the late Rev. Samuel McCrary — a founding member of the legendary gospel quartet The Fairfield Four — Ann, Regina, Alfreda and Deborah grew up in Nashville surrounded by music, artists, community, and faith. The daughters were raised in harmony, singing at home and at their father’s church. In their formative years, the sisters had many accomplishments — individually and together — sharing in their family legacy performing with artists including Bob Dylan, Elvis, Isaac Hayes and Stevie Wonder.

In 2011, the Sisters officially formed their own group, The McCrary Sisters, and have since recorded or performed with notable artists Delbert McClinton, Black Keys, Martina McBride, Eric Church, Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Jonny Lang, Robert Randolph, The Winans, Donnie McClurkin, Rosanne Cash, Carrie Underwood, Hank Williams Jr., Dr. John, Widespread Panic, Sheryl Crow, Maren Morris, Gregg Allman and many more.

Their own recordings previous to these include a single “Amazing Grace” (2021), and albums A Very McCrary Christmas (2019), Live (2017), Let’s Go (2015), All The Way (2013), Our Journey (2011).

With great sadness, The McCrary Sisters confirmed the passing of Deborah McCrary on June 1st, 2022.  Beautiful, strong, loving and caring, Deborah was a light in the McCrary family and the world.
