Crank up the Jukebox! Country artist Kevin Mac at CLC February 19

Country music artist Kevin Mac will bring his ‘Classic Country Jukebox’ show to the Chalberg Theatre stage on Friday, February 19 at 7:30 p.m. The show is part of the Cultural Arts Series presented by the Central Lakes Community Performing Arts Center.

“I was told that before a single note leaves his lips or one chord is strummed from his acoustic guitar, Kevin Mac convinces you to love him,” says Series Producer Patrick Spradlin. “ I watched several promotional videos of Kevin, and it was true. In addition to being an incredibly talented musician, Kevin is a consummate entertainer.”

Born in King George County, Virginia, Mac was bred on country/ bluegrass music and raised in the church. Despite his young age, he has years of experience under his belt. Kevin has opened for industry heavy hitters Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Phil Vassar, Darryl Worley, Trace Adkins, Colt Ford, LeAnn Rimes, Kip Moore, The Band Perry, Missy Elliott, Blacksreet, T. Mills, Timbaland, J. Cole and Ashanti. He re-recorded a "Southern Swag" version of the 1990s hit "No Diggity" with mega producer Teddy Riley, and he has written and collaborated with some of the most accomplished songwriters in the business, including hitmakers for Rascal Flatts, Diamond Rio, Beyonce and Britney Spears. In 2014 Kevin signed his first major record publishing deal with mega producer Dr. Luke's Prescription songs based out of Los Angeles, California.
