Mac Wins Musician of the Year for 7th Straight Time

November 5th, 2014

He did it! Mac McAnally once again won Musician of the Year tonight at the 48th annual CMA Awards. It’s Mac’s seventh consecutive win, breaking a record held by fiddler Mark O’Connor.

“I have to be the least deserving winner … but that doesn’t mean I’m not grateful for it,” says McAnally. “The guys I’m nominated with honestly deserve it at least as much as I deserve it … But I’m the most grateful guy that’s ever gotten the award, I’ll say that.”

Mac McAnally Goes for Record at CMA Awards

November 4th, 2014

The 48th annual CMA Awards will air Wednesday night, and singer/songwriter (and Coral Reefer) Mac McAnally is looking to set a record for consecutive Musician of the Year wins.

The multi-talented performer has already won seven CMA Musician of the Year awards – six in a row – and he’s once again nominated in the same category. First nominated in 2007, he’s won the award each year since 2008, tying the consecutive-win record set by fiddler Mark O’Connor (1991-96). If he picks up another CMA award for his artistry with a guitar Wednesday night, he’ll become the record-holder for most consecutive wins in the category.

Watch the CMA Awards live on ABC at 8pm ET. The Musician of the Year award is typically awarded before the live show.
