Mac McAnally signs with Toby's label

Monday, March 16, 2009 – Songwriter McAnally, who just had an umber one hit singing with Kenny Chesney on Down the Road, now has a record deal again. He signed with Show Dog Nashville, Toby Keith's label.

"There's nobody more respected, at least when it comes to musicians and people who really know this business, than Mac McAnally," said Keith. "There aren't a lot of guys you put in that category, and I've gotten to work with a few. So getting to be a part of whatever Mac wants to do is an honor for me and for everyone at the label."

McAnally and Chesney are nominated for the ACM Vocal Event of the Year. The song is his sixth country number one as a writer.

McAnally got his start as a Muscle Shoals session musician as a guitarist. He's played behind or sang harmony for many artists including Roy Orbison, Hank Williams, Jr., Amy Grant, Travis Tritt, Linda Ronstadt, Mary Chapin Carpenter, Dolly Parton and Jimmy Buffett, who Mac continues to tour with as part of his Coral Reefer band and has produced projects for including the number one album, "License to Chill." He also produced Ricky Skaggs, Sawyer Brown, Chris LeDoux and Little Feat.

McAnally previously was with Geffen, RCA, DreamWorks, Warner and MCA Records.
