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 eight years in a row and electing him to both the Nashville Songwriters Halls of Fame and Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame.
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 in Mississippi. And I hope its impact will linger beyond my lifetime in the same sense that a good Christmas album never gets old.”
