Mac Powell is a musician from Clanton, Alabama who has found a new home in country music. Powell is widely known as the lead singer of the Christian rock band, Third Day. Whether Powell is creating Christian or country music, the fabric and identity of each song remains the same- powerful vocals coupled with heavy lyrics and an incredible sound. Powell recently did an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, in which he talks about his motivation behind creating country music:
"Alabama was a big influence on me. That was the band I aspired to because I loved their songs and their playing and their harmonies. When I was a kid I also listened to Kenny Rogers, Dolly Parton, Ronnie Milsap, and of course Johnny Cash and Willie Nelson are huge inspirations to me."
Some of my favorite Mac Powell songs include I've Always Loved You, Everything to Me, and Carolina.
