Uniquely Granbury Podcast
Visit Granbury is excited to work with Drew Myers of Open Mouth Communications on producing the new and exciting travel podcast, Uniquely Granbury!
This podcast celebrates those events, the incredible venues that host those events, and the community’s rich history – not to mention the people that tie it all together.
This is Uniquely Granbury.
Episode IV - Granbury Opera House
On this episode, we put the Granbury Opera House in the spotlight. Host, Drew Meyer, interviews two gentlemen who have a heart for the Opera House and have played a significant role in what the Opera House has become - the anchor of the Granbury Square. On this episode, we sat down with Mickey Parson & Micky Shearon.
Micky Shearon is the president and director of the Granbury Theater Co. which handles the day-to-day operations of the Opera House.
Mickey Parson is an actor and community advocate in Granbury. He was on the Granbury City Council when the city decided to invest in the Opera House and help preserve the magic of the venue. He'll share the history and a handful of stories associated with the Opera House, including one of his most memorable moments on stage.
Episode III - The NEW Granbury Live! & The Great Race
Sister McRae, an advocate for everything Granbury, shares her story and the story of her brother Tom, who has left an incredible legacy in this community. From The New Granbury Live to The Great Race, Tom McRae's fingerprint can still be seen on Granbury's rich history. This episode is highlighted by love - love for a community and an undying love between a sister and her brother.
“The one word that comes to mind when you say 'Sister McRae' is iconic. She has a history like no other here in Granbury. What an elegant lady, classy lady. I've never seen her be anything but delightful. And she's just so connected." - Tammy Dooley, Director, Visit Granbury
Episode II - Granbury's Memorial Lane
A trip to Branson, Missouri completely changed Julia Pannell’s life and ultimately gave life to a community treasure in Granbury, Texas. In this episode of Uniquely Granbury, Julia explains how she simply wanted to do more to honor the service men and women in her community. She also wanted to recognize the first responders. Julia Pannell wanted to celebrate all of their selflessness for putting their lives on the line for our safety and freedom. That is how Memorial Lane was born and it’s why it has become a must-see when people visit Granbury. From its inspiring glow at dusk to the annual events held onsite, Memorial Lane is a beautiful celebration of service and sacrifice. Besides our sit-down conversation with Julia, we interview a handful of other people who help capture the essence of the park and Julia Pannell’s heart for giving back.
Episode I - The Power of Storytelling
The power of the story is on display at the Bridge Street History Center. Unlike most museums that are packed full of artifacts and relics, the History Center puts an emphasis on the stories that make Granbury’s history come to life. On this inaugural episode of Uniquely Granbury, we share a history-rich conversation with Maurice Walton, president of the Bridge Street History Center. We discuss his passion for Granbury's vibrant history, and we talk about his involvement with the museum. It's Maurice Walton's mission to keep Granbury's history from slipping away.
