The World's Largest ManMcAnally’s music is represented in TRIO – the multimedia exhibit of original music and art inspired by southern literature. TRIO debuted in September at the Southern Independent Booksellers Alliance Discovery Show in Raleigh, North Carolina and is currently traveling to bookstores and book festivals in throughout South.  McAnally’s song “Alive and In Between” was written in response to Harrison Scott Key’s bestselling memoir, The World’s Largest Man.

On stage, Mac said to the room full of his peers, "I'm a lucky man to be in Music City to get to strum up and down with the guys I'm nominated with. So many great players in town, it's the best pool of musicians in the world and I'm a tadpole that's happy to be here. Thank y'all very much, thanks CMA for recognizing the musicians behind the corners sometimes. God Bless."
