TTRMS – Mark McKinney
March 22th – 8:00 p.m.
A west Texas native, Mark moved to Austin, Texas in the 90s and has since been quite comfortable living in the live music capitol of the world. In the summer of 2006, Mark released his first solo album, Get It On and hit the road touring full time.
Mark snagged his first Number One spot on the Texas Music Chart and TRRR in early 2013 with “She Ain’t Leavin’,” the debut single off of his latest album, Standing My Ground. Later that year, the second single from the album, “Stolen Cash,” made its way up to Number One on the charts. The song was inspired by much time spent in Port Aransas, Texas, a town McKinney considers to be his second home. It was written while staying at Seashell Village Resort, McKinney’s favorite of all Port Aransas hotels, and infamous getaway and writing retreat for many Texas songwriters. Seashell Village is also home to Third Coast Theater, a place many deem to be the best place for Port Aransas live music.
With four studio albums, Fifteen Top 10 hits on the Texas Country Charts, an ever-growing fan base, and favorite entertainer of the Texas music scene, Mark McKinney is a force to be reckoned with, and has no plans of slowing down any time soon. Mark’s brand new album, World In Between released in January of 2017, has already received much critical acclaim.
