Deborah McCrary, Member of Nashville-Based Quartet the McCrary Sisters, Dead at 67

Deborah McCrary, a member of the sibling vocal group the McCrary Sisters, died Wednesday. She was 67. A spokesperson for the Nashville-based group confirmed McCrary’s passing; no cause of death was given.

Known for their euphoric, soul-stirring harmonies and gospel stylings, the McCrary Sisters have performed and recorded with artists from across a wide array of genres including Carrie Underwood, Gregg Allman, Chris Stapleton, Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Margo Price, Robert Randolph, and Widespread Panic. In 2016, they appeared with Maren Morris at the CMA Awards to perform Morris’s breakout hit “My Church,” one of numerous national TV appearances made by the group.

Still, it’s the Americana movement with which the group is most identified. The quartet are longtime members of the Americana Honors & Awards house band and their sound became integral to the genre as its artists further leaned into soul, R&B, blues, and gospel.
