Mac McAnally

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 Halls 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.
