It only made sense to reach out to them and pitch the idea about singing with us. Luckily, they also said yes!” “To be able to do this song and video with Flat River Band was nothing short of awesome! We had a wonderful time sharing the day with them and shooting the video. It was a true blessing,” stated The McCrary Sisters. “We are so happy, honored and proud to be a part of this project and share in this song with our brothers in music.”
“The McCrarys came in the studio and laid down these angelic voices that could only be replicated from Heaven,” shared Dennijo of Flat River Band. Growing up, the Flat River Band brothers' grandpa would always tell them about listening to the Friday night Opry and hearing the Legendary Hank Snow’s son, Jimmie Snow, close out the Grand Ole Opry with his own show called Grand Ole Gospel Time, which he hosted for 25 years. Jimmie also owned a video production company outside of Nashville where they had done several videos during the family band days at his studio. It was an honor to have Brother Jimmie Snow to play the role of himself, “a preacher,” in the video for “Shining Through My Window.”
