McAnally Joins Chesney for “Austin City Limits” Taping

May 14th, 2009

CMA’s reigning Musician of the Year and Coral Reefer Band member Mac McAnally made a surprise appearance on Tuesday when he joined Kenny Chesney on stage for Chesney’s “Austin City Limits” taping.

They played “Down The Road”, their recent number one hit collaboration, and “Back Where I Come From”.

“Any time you can put the focus on the songs, it’s a good thing,” Chesney says. “And to be able to do that with Mac… well, it just takes these songs to a whole other level. I was honored that he’d do this with us, and I hope we’ll get to see him out on the road when he can get away from his own stuff.”

The show will air sometime in early Fall on PBS.
