Third Day's frontman Mac Powell to release country album

ONE OF CCM's most popular vocalists, Mac Powell, has announced plans to release his first solo album. The singer will continue to front Atlanta rockers Third Day but has now made a surprise decision to record a country album. Said Powell, "I can't tell you how excited I am to tell y'all the news that I have made a country record! I grew up listening to country music, and I've been hearing for many years from friends, family and fans that they would love to hear me do a country album. After so much confirmation, I started feeling like I couldn't NOT make a country record (does that make sense?). So, I went to work. There have been so many times in the past that I had song ideas that didn't really fit lyrically or musically with Third Day. I filed those songs away to the 'maybe sometime' category. Well, that time is now. I started working on these songs, and a whole bunch of new ones, off and on about a year ago. Then, I had the chance to record the songs with some really talented musicians. I am very happy with the results and I cannot wait to share it with you!" Powell plans to release the album in the next few months, before Third Day's new release in the autumn. CR
