Mac Powell grew up in a small town in Alabama. His love for music was inspired at an by both of his parents who would sing and play guitar around the house. Mac soon began to joing in singing in the local country church by day and honing his talents by listening to his Dad's expansive record collection by night.
As a sophomore in high school, he moved to Atlanta, GA where his passion for music and faith found an outlet in the band Third Day. Over the past 25 years Third Day has helped transform Christian music and built a devoted fan base while traveling the world many times over, selling 10 million albums, earning 4 Grammy awards, 1 American Music Award, 24 Dove Awards, and by being inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. Mac, was the lead singer/principal songwriter for Third Day, before the group called it quits with a sold-out farewell tour in 2018.
Along the way, Mac has been honored to perform in front of millions of fans around the world and play music with some of the best musicians in the industry. Many of these acquaintances both onstage and in the crowd have turned from friends into true family members, and now it’s time for a good old fashioned Family Reunion!
MAC POWELL and the FAMILY REUNION officially started in early 2018 as the next chapter of Mac's musical journey. The Family Reunion is a band that has developed over the past several years from the musical “brothers" that have been recording and playing live with Mac in support of his first 2 independent solo projects.
There are few performances that one could attend and hear a cover of the Georgia Satellites' "Keep Your Hands to Yourself" followed by a classic hymn such as "Victory in Jesus." A unique band is an understatement, but that's what makes Mac Powell and the Family Reunion so refreshing and interesting. Their self-titled debut album, Back Again is such an eclectic treat.
The Southern roots - American rock collections are foot-stompin', hand clappin' tunes clearly pay tribute to the early musical inspirations from his childhood. The live show is a blend of classic and sing along Gospel, Country, and American Rock songs, combined with some Mac's favorite THIRD DAY numbers that he has written, and his latest original tunes.
Mac had also released two solo country records previously, a self-titled debut in 2012 and Southpaw in 2014.
