Mac Powell, front man of the Atlanta-based Christian band Third Day, will release his self-titled debut Country album on August 21.
The CD features twelve songs from the songwriter including his first single, “June Bug,” which he released last month through his Twitter account. The full digital CD is currently available on his website as a pre-release limited pressing.
Powell worked with producer Jason Hoard, who has been touring with Third Day since 2010. Hoard contributed to the songwriting credits along with Brett James.
“I grew up listening to country music,” said Powell. “It was a big part of shaping me musically and I think that’s pretty evident in Third Day music. There’s always been little tinge of it. I started writing with Brett. He was really the first step. We just hit it off really well and came up with a lot of ideas in a short amount of time.”
Powell made his debut country performance at this year’s CMA Music Festival and is already booked for over two dozen shows this summer and fall, backed by a group of Country musicians named The Backsliders.
The singer will continue to work with Third Day, as the band is finalizing a new album due later in 2012 with producer Brendan O’Brien. A Spring 2013 tour will follow.
