    "Back Again" (Released 7/26)

    First full album from Mac Powell and the Family Reunion

    "['Back Again'] exemplifies the band's high-energy sound," stated Billboard. "The remainder of the album, like the band's live shows, is a blend of country, rock and gospel, brought to life with Powell's gritty, soulful voice."

     

    “Like most people, I grew up listening to my Mom and Dad’s record collection,” says Powell. “There was singer-songwriter stuff, some country and southern rock. I always liked artists like CCR (Creedence Clearwater Revival), James Taylor, the Eagles or even the Stones who weren’t country per se, but who sometimes leaned more toward that sound. That’s what was stirring my mind and my spirit.”

     

    To that end, he formed Mac Powell and the Family Reunion after Third Day’s final shows in 2018, utilizing musical “brothers” who had been recording and playing live with Mac in support of his other solo projects, including his 2012 self-titled debut and 2014's Southpaw. Recorded in Atlanta with producer/musical director Jason Hoard, Powell and his bandmates purposely kept a raw edge to the record. The result is a welcome looseness and down-home charm to Back Again. Beginning with the title track, Mac and his band are equally comfortable crafting singalongs ("Whoo!" featuring Craig Morgan), gentle ballads ("Red on a Rose") and hand-clapping, toe-tapping country pop ("Going to California," "Mississippi").

    December

    December -my old long lost friend
    Your cold winds are blowing me
    Home once again
    December- don’t leave me just yet
    With all of these memories
    How could I forget

    I was born in late December
    The sky was dark and wind was cold
    To tell the truth I don’t remember
    It’s just what I was always told
    And it must’ve been a real hard winter
    For a mother and her first newborn
    For a new life that was just beginning
    And a father that was going to war

    December- My old long lost friend
    Your cold winds are blowing me
    Home once again
    December don’t leave me just yet
    With all of these memories
    How could I forget

    Now that I’m a little older
    and I have children of my own
    The season means much more to me now
    So I’m going to let that cold wind blow

    Away in a Manger/Joy To The World

    Away in a manger
    No crib for a bed
    The little Lord Jesus
    Lay down His sweet head
    The stars in the sky
    Look down where He lay
    The little Lord Jesus
    Asleep on the hay

    The cattle are lowing
    The baby awakes
    But little Lord Jesus
    No crying He makes
    I love Thee, Lord Jesus
    Look down from the sky
    And stay by my side
    'Til morning is nigh

    Joy to the World the Lord is come
    Let Earth receive her King
    Let every heart prepare Him room
    And heaven and nature sing

    Be near me, Lord Jesus
    I ask Thee to stay
    Close by me forever
    And love me, I pray
    Bless all the dear children
    In Thy tender care
    And take us to Heaven
    To live with Thee there

    Happiest New Year

    It’s been a long winter

    It’s been a long year

    And I can’t believe we made it to December

    Though I don’t remember just how we got here

    But I’m thankful that

    We’re all in this together

     

    And the Salvation Army band it plays our favorite Christmas songs

    And the church bells all in town are ringing as we sing along

    Everyone from young to old is filled with hope and good cheer

    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and the happiest New Year

     

    So let’s raise a toast to good friends

    Let’s sing a song of hope

    And remember why we celebrate this season

    For all that we’ve been given

    This one thing I know

    That the gift of love will always be the reason

    Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer

    Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
    Had a very shiny nose
    And if you ever saw it
    You would even say it glows

     

    All of the other reindeer
    Used to laugh and call him names
    They never let poor Rudolph
    Join in any reindeer games

     

    Then one foggy Christmas Eve
    Santa came to say
    "Rudolph, with your nose so bright
    Won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

     

    Then how the reindeer loved him
    As they shouted out with glee
    "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
    You'll go down in history"

    Everything You Want for Christmas

    I hope you get everything you want for Christmas

    I hope you get everything you want this year

    Lord knows you’ve been working hard

    I put a good word in to Santa Claus

    I hope you get everything you want for Christmas

     

    Honey if you’re asking me

    You know I don’t really need

    Anything but you right by my side

     

    If I had a Christmas wish

    The only thing that is on my list

    Is to give you what your heart desires

     

    I hope you get everything you want for Christmas

    I hope you get everything you want this year

    Lord knows you’ve been working hard

    I put a good word in to Santa Claus

    I hope you get everything you want for Christmas

     

    Whoa fancy cars and diamond rings

    Baby you don’t need those things

    What’s it going to take for you to see

    And the reason I’ve been singing

    Maybe it’s just wishful thinking

    I hope all you really want is me

    Blue Christmas

    I have a blue Christmas without you
    I'll be so blue just thinking about you
    Decorations of red, on a green Christmas tree
    Won't be the same dear, if you're not here with me

     

    And when those blue snow flakes start falling
    That's when those blue memories start calling
    You'll be doing alright, with your Christmas of white
    But I'll have a blue, blue, blue, blue Christmas

    If We Make It Through December

    If we make it through December
    Everything's gonna be all right, I know
    It's the coldest time of winter
    And I shiver when I see the falling snow
    If we make it through December
    Got plans to be in a warmer town come summertime
    Maybe even California
    If we make it through December, we'll be fine

     

    Got laid off down at the factory
    And their timing's not the greatest in the world
    Heaven knows I been working hard
    Wanted Christmas to be right for daddy's girl
    I don't mean to hate December
    It's meant to be the happy time of year
    And my little girl don't understand
    Why daddy can't afford no Christmas here

     

    If we make it through December
    Everything's gonna be all right, I know
    It's the coldest time of winter
    And I shiver when I see the falling snow
    If we make it through December
    Got plans to be in a warmer town come summertime
    Maybe even California
    If we make it through December, we'll be fine

     

    If we make it through December

    Silent Night

    Silent night, holy night!
    All is calm, all is bright

    Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child
    Holy Infant so tender and mild
    Sleep in heavenly peace
    Sleep in heavenly peace

    Silent night, holy night!
    Shepherds quake at the sight
    Glories stream from heaven afar

    Heavenly hosts sing ‘Alleluia!
    Christ the Savior is born
    Christ the Savior is born

    Silent night, holy night!
    All is calm, all is bright

    Round yon Virgin, Mother and Child
    Holy Infant so tender and mild
    Sleep in heavenly peace
    Sleep in heavenly peace

    Christmas In Dixie

    By now in New York City.
    There's snow on the ground.
    And out in California.
    The sunshines' falling down.
    And maybe down in Memphis, Graceland's all in lights.
    And in Atlanta, Georgia, there's peace on earth tonight.

    Christmas in Dixie, it's snowing in the pines.
    Merry Christmas from Dixie to everyone tonight.

    Its windy in Chicago.
    The kids are out of school.
    There's magic in Motown.
    The city's on the move.
    In Jackson, Mississippi to Charlotte, Caroline.
    And all across the Nation, it's the peaceful Christmas time.

    And in Atlanta, Georgia

    Merry Christmas tonight.

    Merry Christmas Baby

    Hope you have a happy New Year

    Well we’re gonna have a good time

    Filled with lots of fun and cheer

     

    Santa’s got his reindeer

    Loading up his sleigh with some toys

    Santa’s got his reindeer

    Loading up his sleigh with some toys

    He’s gonna ride around the world

    For all the good girls and boys

     

    I’m at this Christmas party

    Just wanted you to know

    That I’ll be standing all night

    Underneath the mistletoe

    One More Silent Night

    The first snowfall reminds us all

    To gather ‘round the fire tonight

    The evergreen stands shivering

    They are covered all in white

    December sun he’s work is done

    As he begins to dim his light

    There’s a winter chill and all is still

    As evening turns to night

     

    And so it is this Christmas Eve

    Like those so long ago

    And hark the herald angels sings

    Songs that we all know

    So it is this Christmas Eve

    The star is shining bright

    Children round the world will sing

    One more silent night

     

    A cold wind blows

    And there are those

    Huddled ‘round the fire today

    The virgin birth and peace on earth

    Seems so far away

    A baby cries, a mother tries to find the strength for one more day

    She prays for one more silent night

    In a world that’s lost it’s way

     

    And so it is this Christmas Eve

    Like those so long ago

    With hark the herald angels sings

    Songs that we all know

    So it is this Christmas Eve

    The star is shining bright

    Children round the world will pray

    For one more silent night

     

    Christmas time is more to me

    Than the gifts we give

    More than songs that we sing

    Its reaching out for the world to see

    Just who is the child, who is this King

     

    The snow is deep, the children sleep

    With dreams of toys and Santa’s sleigh

    And hope burns bright by fire tonight

    A new year is on its way

    A church bell’s ring, a choir sings

    And peace on earth is what we crave

    All is calm and bright tonight

    For tomorrow is Christmas Day

    Southpaw

    Second chapter of Mac's solo career

    The second foray into country music by Third Day frontman Mac Powell displays the same earthiness and conviction that’s earned him legions of fans in both the Christian and secular realms. Cowriting with such notables as Darius Rucker, Travis Tritt, and Sugarland’s Kristian Bush, Powell brings a Dixie-fried intensity to upbeat tracks like “Red Boots,” ”Summer Lovin’,” and “90 to Nothing” and fills ballads like “Sittin’ Here Talkin’ with You,” “Everything to Me,” and “I’ve Always Loved You” with a rough-hewn tenderness. First cut to last, Southpaw feels like a homecoming celebration for this Alabama native son.

    Mac Powell (Self Titled)

    Self-titled solo album

    The debut solo country album from Third Day's Mac Powell, featuring 12 original country songs: Sweet Georgia Girl, Saturday Night, Carry You, Mississippi, Julia Ann, This Ain't No Hobby, Hold On To Me, June Bug, Do You Love Me, Trying To Get Over You, Carolina, My Love For You Remains
