Coming off of a very successful EU / US tour with multi-media stars Kate Voegele, Tyler Hilton; and American Idol Winner, Taylor Hicks. Florida native Mackey hit Nashville’s Sony Tree studio to begin work on his upcoming release. Partnering with award-winning Nashville stalwart Jeff King (Reba/Brooks and Dunn), Mackey set out to record his next project in Music City.
While wrapping up the first phase of the project, Mackey found himself sitting at a crossroads of “what to do” when Nashville was decimated by unprecedented tornadoes. “Keep The World Alive” came flowing and was added to the project immediately. “I was asleep and began to dream, the dream flowed into the words of the song, so we tracked it and I felt it needed to be released as some sort of reprieve from the madness and sadness,” stated Mackey. “We quickly released it and have our hearts set that the song can also assist in raising awareness and much-needed funds for the crippling emotions we are feeling today,” he added.
Since his first full-length album in 2014, Mackey has had numerous successes with his original music. From the initial placement on the Disney Channel’s “Naturally Sadie” series, he has garnered features in TV, Film, and National and International Branding Campaigns. A few among them are CMT Edge, A&E, Lifetime, Travel Channel, Arla Foods Demark, Unicef UK, and Rebel One Pictures.
