November 17th, 2017

The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal has an article on Mac McAnally that provides more information on how he’s doing:

The performer had the heart attack on Monday night in Nashville, according to his publicist, Elaine Schock with Shock Ink.

“He’s actually doing great,” she said during a phone interview from Los Angeles. “They released him from the hospital and he’s going to be back to work really soon.”

Schock said that last week, McAnally was enjoying the spotlight and the red carpet at the Country Music Association Awards, where he tied Chet Atkins with nine Musician of the Year trophies.

“It was so good to see him get the award,” Schock said, “and then this happens a few days later.”

McAnally, 60, is a singer, songwriter and session musician based in Nashville. He’s also a member of Jimmy Buffett’s band, The Coral Reefers.

No decisions have been made about future concerts, but Schock expressed confidence in McAnally’s ability to get back on stage soon.

“He’s doing really good,” she said, “and we’re all happy about that.”
