A rock and roll heart, country roots, and spellbinding songcraft: Recording and performing artist Mark Mackay has left his boot prints on stages like Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium to Colorado’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre. As a headliner, a festival act, or highlighting bills across the country with an array of performers — including Tim McGraw, Blake Shelton, and Eli Young Band, plus rockers like REO Speedwagon, Night Ranger and 38 Special — Mark Mackay captivates audiences with fretboard mastery and memorable hooks.
Mark performs solo on guitar and piano for television and radio appearances, and songwriter nights. But he loves to stretch out musically with a blazing electric guitar, fronting his band of top-notch Tennessee musicians. As a headliner, he has built his audience from the ground up, with repeated visits to markets where he has become a favorite. “Big shows, small shows, and all shows in between,” he says. “When I started out, I thought all the cool shows would be in Hollywood, New York, and Miami. They’re not – they’re in Minot, North Dakota; Billings, Montana… or Huber Heights, Ohio.”
Interacting with audiences is essential for Mackay. “I meet so many people who tell me, ‘I was in a band when I was younger, and the biggest regret I have in my life is that I gave it up. Don’t ever quit.’” It is a creed that Mark Mackay takes to heart. “It’s a reminder that no matter what happens, you’ve got to keep going.”
