Mac Watts releases new song hailing his pandemic heroes

The country artist teams up with other musicians on new project

Music Monday - Mac Watts on Live in the D

Country musician Mac Watts is originally from the Detroit area, but now he’s making a name for himself recording in Nashville.

He started his love for music ten years ago after his run playing hockey. He picked up playing guitar and moved to Florida, where he said he really got into the music scene. Four years ago, he packed his bag and moved to Nashville and has been recording there since.

His latest project is a song called Superhero which is performed by a team of four including himself, KC Johns, Tim Angsten, and Colin Cross. Watts also thanked Stephen Clark for his behind the scenes work. He says the song was written a while back and that it honors the work of essential workers during the pandemic.

“It’s unfortunate that it came to a pandemic to create a song like this,” Watts said.

He said they wanted to give a little love to the everyday heroes that don’t get enough credit for the work they do.

Watts also has several solo projects in the works and plans to release one new song every month this year. He started this last Friday with his latest song Wise Man, which he said he was pretty proud of. He said that they’re hoping to hit the ground running and keep going strong even at a time when releasing music is far from easy.
