Our guests today, the Nashville based gospel group The McCrary Sisters, have a new album produced by Buddy Miller called Let's Go. It's their third. They released their debut in 2011.

They are the four daughters of the late Rev. Samuel McCrary, an original member of the legendary gospel group The Fairfield Four, that smooth singing group that is still going strong today. Two of the four sisters, Ann and Regina, have sung professionally throughout their lives — Regina worked with Bob Dylan. Alfreda focused on singing and preaching and Deborah became a nurse.

We'll hear how they mingled with the gospel greats as kids and about Regina's bizarre interview for Dylan's band. We've also got a free download from their performance on SoundCloud.
