Mac McAnally
As part of the 2019 Fort Knox Federal Credit Union Concert Series

Friday, August 16, 2019
Show begins at 8:00 PM
Doors open at 6:00 PM

In some ways, award-winning songwriter, instrumentalist, producer and artist Mac McAnally is a paradox.He is beyond dispute one of the most respected musicians of our time. His peers have made that clear by honoring him as CMA Musician of the Year for an unprecedented nine years and electing him to the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame, and Alabama Music Hall of Fame.Yet he is also one of the softest-spoken and self-effacing figures anywhere on the public stage. In fact, despite decades of recording countless sessions, releasing solo albums, and writing a parade of hits that include No. 1 singles for Kenny Chesney, Alabama, Sawyer Brown and Shenandoah, Mac seems a little uncomfortable in the spotlight. His reluctance to toot his own horn is a welcome anomaly these days - and that makes his accomplishments even more impressive.For all that he has achieved, one dream remained elusive. Typically, it was Mac's altruism, rather than any drive toward greater fame, that made it happen.Southbound is Mac's 16th album. It's packed with a generous selection of 16 tracks. And it's his first to feature his songs arranged for symphony orchestra. Recorded with the FestivalSouth orchestra conducted by  Jay Dean and a rhythm section that includes Mac's colleagues in Jimmy Buffett's Coral Reefer Band, Southbound doesn't just give Mac's writing, instrumental skills and expressive vocals the attention they deserve. It also serves several worthy causes that speak personally to him: Extra Table, which brings food to the hungry in Mississippi, and the University of Southern Mississippi's music program.In its variety, craftsmanship and emotional depth, Southbound would be a jewel in any artist's crown. But again, characteristically, Mac doesn't see it that way. Above all, to this son of Mississippi, it's a way to further enhance the lives of others through the channels that drew him originally to the project.Acknowledging that Southbound reflects his concern for the needy in his home state, Mac adds, "I don't believe it's limited to Mississippi. These songs apply to the South in general and beyond as well in the same way that William Faulkner wrote about universal concerns by focusing on only one county is Mississippi. And I hope its impact will linger beyond my lifetime in the same sense that a good Christmas album never gets old.
