Mac McAnally Wins CMA Musician of the Year Again

November 10th, 2010

The Country Music Association (CMA) held their 44th annual awards show on Wednesday night and Coral Reefer Band member Mac McAnally won Musician of the Year for the third straight year. The award was doled out before the show.

Mac beat out Paul Frankin, Dann Huff, Brent Mason, and Randy Scruggs for the honor.

In an interview last month, Mac described how humbled he was to win the award twice and be nominated again:

“I know we’ve had this conversation before, but I was flattered and felt unworthy to be nominated the first time and now I’ve won two,” McAnally said.

“Once again, I’m awfully grateful to be thought about in any positive light by my peers,” McAnally said.

“Playing music is my favorite thing to do,” he said. “It’s certainly not a bad thing to get called to do some more.”

Congrats Mac!
