I have known Mac McAnally, who is a legendary country singer, songwriter and producer (and 10 time CMA Musician of the Year) since 2012, when he took me under his wing in Nashville and introduced me to the studio musician scene there. I have the upmost respect for Mac and everyone in the Coral Reefer Band (Jimmy Buffett’s longtime band). One day in Charlotte, NC I worked up the courage to ask Mac to come join me during my set for a duet of his hit song with Kenny Chesney, “Down the Road”. People in the audience loved it so much that we have played it every night on the Jimmy Buffett tour since! Recently, at one of my solo shows, I had an onstage proposal. After she said yes, I sang “Down the Road” to the happy couple as they slow danced onstage. It’s such a special song about the cycles of life.
