BILOXI, Miss. (March 10, 2015) –Seven-time CMA Musician of the Year Mac McAnally is teaming up with MGM Resorts International’s Beau Rivage Resort & Casino to host a one-of-a-kind concert for a cause. On Tuesday, April 28, 2015 at 8:00 p.m., McAnally will perform a special concert with members of the Coral Reefer Band and the USM Festival South Orchestra to benefit local charity, Extra Table.
“I am honored and excited to perform at Beau Rivage on behalf of Extra Table,” said Mac McAnally. “Extra Table represents a great cause which solely benefits the needy in my beloved home state. Playing with several of my Coral Reefer Band family, as well as an orchestra full of Mississippians, equals about four or five dreams coming true all at the same time. Come join us and celebrate Mississippi, while helping make it even better!”
Extra Table −founded by chef, author and restaurateur, Robert St. John − is a non-profit organization working to fight hunger in Mississippi by providing healthy food in bulk to food pantries and soup kitchens. They have partnered with the nation's largest food distribution company, Sysco, who delivers the food directly to the doors of Extra Table’s affiliated feeding agencies. On the Mississippi Gulf Coast, Extra Table partners with Feed My Sheep in Gulfport, Loaves and Fishes in Biloxi, Our Daily Bread in Pascagoula, St. Gerard Community Outreach in Bay St. Louis, and The Lord is My Help in Ocean Springs.
McAnally has achieved many milestones in his remarkable career, which started with writing his first song at the age of 15. Mac has been named CMA Musician of the Year now seven consecutive times, most recently in November 2014. He has written six No. 1 hits, become a sought-after producer, and is regarded as one of the foremost musicians of his time. In addition to playing alongside the Coral Reefers, McAnally has been inducted into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame, and the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame.
