Same Shane, different honor

Mineral Wells native Shane McAnally takes home first two Grammys

(Continued)

While McAnally was in the City of Angels, his mom and step-dad, Margaret and Bill Terry, were home in the City of Crazy Water watching the award show on TV. Margaret said her son had called them before the show to tell them he had already won Best Country Song in the pre-telecast ceremony – which they were elated to hear – but nothing could prepare them to see the announcement for Best Country Album live on CBS.

“When they announced Kacey had won, I (wanted to) jump through the TV,” Margaret said. “We had no idea. Neither did Shane. Both of our phones were going off like firecrackers.

“It’s one thing to get a CMA award, but to actually get a Grammy; that is huge. We’re so proud of him and he has worked so hard. It’s just overwhelming.”

Musgraves, who found a friend in McAnally long before she found fame, was grateful for his help and that of the rest of her creative team that helped them all achieve Grammy glory.

“I feel like the stars just aligned for us to come together,” she said in a press conference after the awards show. “We’re just three friends that started writing together and making amazing songs together that we really loved.

“The entire key, I feel like, to every part of this whole thing is having the right people around you. People that you trust, people that will fight for you and people that won’t try and change you no matter what.

“I’m lucky to have an entire team of people from the ground up that has never once tried to change anything about me. I’m very thankful for that.”

Palo Pinto County ties to Musgraves’ two new Grammys do not end with McAnally. The award-winning single and primary track on the Musgraves’ Grammy-award winning album, “Merry Go Round,” was written by McAnally, Musgraves and Josh Osborne in none other than Strawn.
