Bio

Nashville recording artist, Mac Watts, is a rising star in modern country music. Mac grew up just north of Detroit, Michigan aspiring to play collegiate ice hockey but always had a love for music. When he decided to hang up the skates, he taught himself how to play the guitar, write music and sang karaoke with his mother. He spent countless hours learning guitar, writing songs and improving his range. He found his passion and picked up a few gigs at local bars in the Metro Detroit area. Since a rolling stone gathers no moss, Mac moved to south Florida to complete his Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and supported himself by playing music. He performed in an acoustic duo with another local musician, John Patterson, and later he established a band called “Mac Watts & the Shotgun 40”.  Both offered a variety of steady gigs to support himself while finishing college.  After graduation in December, the stone once again found himself on the road to Music City to pursue a career in country music as a singer/songwriter in Nashville, TN. Since his arrival in February of 2017, he has become a popular name on Broadway. In this short time, Mac has some impressive accomplishments. He and his band from Nashville were selected as the opening act for A Thousand Horses at the 100th Year Anniversary of Selfridge Air Base, Mt. Clements, MI which hosted over 5,000 guests. In addition, winner of the 2018 Nash Next Regional Final contest, opening act for Phil Vassar at the Boots and Boats Festival, Port Huron, MI . A VIP show at the Kid Rock Concert at Perfect Vodka Amphitheater, West Palm Beach, FL,  and his opening solo act at Jenn Bostic's show in Jupiter, FL. In 2017, he was Regional Finals Winner for  the Nash FM America's Talent Search in 2018, and earlier this year, Mac released his single, Coming Home.  He has launched an EP, Dynamite, which can be found on all music platforms. With the assistance of Tim Angsten, Mac made a music video for his hit song, Faith, which is streaming on YouTube.
