Moderated by Country Music Hall of Fame historian Michael Gray, the program recounted McAnally’s journey through photos, videos, and live performances of some of McAnally’s biggest hits, including a surprise acoustic rendition of “Merry Go Round,” performed by Kacey Musgraves, with whom he and Josh Osborne wrote the song.
