Johnny Mac has played more than 2,000 shows in the past 10 years in the tri-state area, but he says his favorite place to play is still none other than Henry County.
He plays both as a solo act and with his band, The Heart Attacks.
Johnny Mac’s music is described as a fusion of plenty of genres, including country, rock, blues and soul. He considers himself a permanent student of Southern music.
Johnny Mac said he thinks that the future of Henry County is in good hands.
“I love Paris and the surrounding lake area. I have such a loyal fan base here and I am very proud for my band to have been asked to perform at the inaugural Tennessee River Jam,” he said. “Travis McLeese and the folks at the chamber, Sheriff (Monte) Belew, and members of other city and county organizations are doing great things for our area and their work has not gone unnoticed by me.”
Johnny Mac and the Heart Attacks will be performing as part of the main Tennessee River Jam show, beginning at 4 p.m. Saturday at Paris Landing State Park.
Johnny Mac’s other act, John and Randall, will be performing at 3 p.m. Sunday at The Breakers, 526 Shamrock Road at Kentucky Lake.
Johnny Mac will also be opening for the Wilson Brothers Band alongside Josh McKee at 7 p.m. Friday at The Breakers.
