nice article!

McAnally has been front and center with Buffett's Coral Reefer Band since the early 1990s, serving as backup singer, guitarist, and on-stage foil. He's also penned a host of songs for the head Parrothead, including "License to Chill," "It's My Job," "Coast of Carolina," "Last Man Standing" and more. As a very tall dude with a massive mane of red hair and thick Southern baritone, he seems less eager to hit the beach with a surfboard than to search for barbecue with a very large truck.

Favorite Buffett Song: Tonight I Just Need My Guitar *and* Southern Cross
Number of Concerts: 40
Favorite Boat Drink: Mojito
Well done and well deserved. Mac's such an humble guy. I think he's finally becoming a *little* more comfortable in the spotlight. His new CD LIVE IN MUSCLE SHOALS is a great compilation of songs. Add in the energy of a live performance ... it's a winner for sure ...

He tells stories between the numbers. The one about him being in a lime green leisure suit at a honky tonk is hysterical.

And, the encore is I HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE. And he's fabulous on it. Just freakin' fabulous! Way to go, Mac.

I agree that being a Reefer has been a benefit for him, but I also think that Mac would have found a great deal of success on his own.......what a talent! :pirate:

sounds like the making of a song to me......

This. Every single reefer has enough talent to make it on their own. I'm not sayin' the summer gig hasn't made life easier but Buffet didn't "make" any of them.
