Mac McAnally to Release Live Album on October 11

Singer-songwriter Mac McAnally  will release his first live album, Live in Muscle Shoals, on October 11. Recorded during his show at Norton Auditorium at the University of North Alabama during the W.C. Handy Music Festival, the album will include hit songs Mac penned such as Kenny Chesney’s  “Back Where I Come From” and “Down The Road” and Sawyer Brown’s  “All These Years.”
Without the help of advanced equipment and the opportunity to sing a song over and over that recording in a studio offers, Mac embraces the flaws heard in his live recordings, taking his cue from W.C. Handy himself.
“In live performance you don’t have to look far for imperfections,” Mac said. “I look at the imperfections as blessings too. W.C. Handy made a career out of mixing influences from his surroundings and expressing them musically. I share that aspiration and hope to merit having shared the bill with his legacy on July 31, 2010 in his hometown of Florence, Alabama.”
Mac set up each song with a short story and bits of humor which are included on the album. Mac once again received a CMA Awards  nominated for Musician of the Year, an award he has won the last three years. He is also a member of Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefers band.
