Multi-talented Mississippi musician Mac McAnally has bounced around from the back roads of Belmont to the beaches of Biloxi over the past several decades.
He’s comfortable no matter where he lands. And in mid-January, he will once again find his way back to the Mississippi Gulf Coast for a pair of shows.
He has written, recorded, performed and produced with the likes of Kenny Chesney, George Strait, Zac Brown Band, Alabama, Martina McBride, Dolly Parton, Sawyer Brown and Keith Whitley as well as George Jones, Brad Paisley, Toby Keith, Billy Joel, Trisha Yearwood, Reba and of course the Pascagoula native Buffett over the years.
“Jimmy is my longest running co-writing relationship,” said McAnally. “We wrote ‘Coast Of Carolina’ as a sequel to ‘Come Monday.’
“Jazz Fest Unplugged” is a live music concept that takes national and regional artists that have played at the greatest music festival in the world in recent years and puts them together in a unique up close and personal setting for the enjoyment of live music fans.
Showtimes for both shows is 8 p.m. Pascagoula’s own Libby Rae Watson will open the show in Jackson County, while Radio Margaritaville DJ Matt Hoggatt will open the show in the Bay.
A limited amount of VIP tickets are available for $50 apiece, and include a pre-show audience with McAnally as well as a meet and greet photo opportunity and guaranteed reserved seating in front of the stage. General admission (standing room only) tickets are $35 apiece.
