The Fairfield Four are a legitimate national treasure with a history that goes back nearly 100 years when the original members began singing at The Fairfield Baptist Church in Nashville. Over the years the group has received numerous honors including two Grammy awards, a National Heritage Award and were inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. They are best known for their appearance in the Coen brothers movie, “O Brother Where Art Thou,” and the corresponding soundtrack. The current members of the Fairfield Four are Joe Thompson, Levert Allison, Larrice Byrd, Sr., and Bobbye Sherrell. Their four soulful voices combine into a rich harmony that’s as soothing as a cool breeze on a hot summer day.
The McCrary Sisters (Ann, Deborah, Regina and Alfreda) are the daughters of the late Rev. Samuel McCrary -- one of the original members of the legendary gospel quartet The Fairfield Four. The daughters were raised in harmony, singing at home and at their father's church, but word soon spread of their individual accomplished voices and each began sharing the family vocal legacy as solo artists with a wide range of performers to include Bob Dylan, Elvis, Isaac Hayes and Stevie Wonder.
In 2011, the Sisters officially formed their own group, The McCrary Sisters, and have recorded or performed with the Black Keys, Martina McBride, Eric Church, Patty Griffin, Buddy Miller, Jonny Lang, Robert Randolph, The Winans, Donnie McClurkin, Nashville’s Jonathan Jackson, Mike Ferris and many more. They have been featured on Bobby Jones Gospel and TBN’s Jason Crabbe Show.
The McCrary Sisters’ new CD Let’s Go is produced by Buddy Miller and features The Fairfield Four.
