LISTEN: The McCrary Sisters Release “Shake it Off” feat. Late Sister Deborah
Since releasing their recording of “Amazing Grace” in 2021, The McCrary Sisters — dubbed “Nashville music royalty” by NPR — have lost two members of their legendary family: sister Deborah, and brother Sam, Jr. In the spirit of healing, the iconic group will release two new tracks featuring some of Deborah’s last recordings: “Shake It Off,” out now, and “Run On,” bowing September 2.
Written by Regina McCrary and Ann McCrary, “Shake It Off” aims to encourage — to see beyond the immediate challenge to the big picture, to rest assured there is always a way out and a way through.
“I’d just left church and was on the interstate driving home feeling good,” says Regina. “Someone cut me off and flipped me the bird. And I thought, ‘I have to shake it off.’ Sometimes we get off balance. I realize one of my weaknesses is road rage. I have to catch myself. I have to shake that off. It can happen anytime. You try to be nice to somebody and they get all arrogant and rude, you have to take the upper road.”
