Mac Powell and the Backsliders

Michael and I had a chance to see Mac Powell and his band play at Liberty University.  This is his own project, nothing to do with Third Day.  The style is mostly southern rock and country.  I really don’t care for country music except for Randy Travis, who I know is *very* country!!  But I have Mac’s first album and I’ve listened to it quite a bit.  I actually like it!  A week or so ago, Mac put up a sampler of his new album and I feel in love with it.  Take a listen for yourself!!  My favorite so far is Red Boots.   Anyway, when the chance came to see him in concert, I bought tickets.  I’m so glad I did!  Michael and I had so much fun.  There were some hardcore Third Day fans there that we met last month in Fairfax at DCFest.  We, of course, got there early to wait in line since it was general admission.  We had no idea what the venue was like.  When the doors were opened, it was just a stage in a big room.  Naturally, we were right at the stage!  We got to meet some very nice, friendly kids and had a good time with them.  I think they were shocked that “older people” were front row!!   Mac and his band were very relaxed and you could see that they really enjoyed playing and being together.  It was a 2.5 hour drive so we didn’t get home until after midnight but it was well worth it!
