(117) Music savant Mac McAnally will be featured in an exclusive interview on SiriusXM's Outsiders Radio this Friday, May 3.

McAnally delves into poignant moments from the Country Music Association (CMA) tribute to Jimmy Buffett, offering a glimpse into the legendary musician's enduring spirit.

Reflecting on Buffett's resilience, McAnally shares a touching anecdote: "There's a difference between acceptance and surrender when it comes to health issues. Jimmy never surrendered to this. I think he accepted some of what was happening, but he never surrendered to it. I was with him 24 hours before he left this earth, and he was smiling as big as ever, and saying, 'We're going to Paris!' He was still planning on touring in Paris."

Most recently, McAnally released his highly anticipated new songs "Oysters and Pearls" and "All The Way Around. "Oysters and Pearls" is a breathtakingly beautiful tune co-written by McAnally and Jimmy Buffett. Buffett previously released the song and McAnally honors Buffett by staying true to the infamous island, tropical sound while using his unique vocals to add a sense of soulfulness and emotion to the heartfelt song.

The second new song, "All The Way Around," paints a vivid picture of life for someone who is curious, adventurous and determined to live life to the fullest. McAnally, who knows a thing or two about traveling "All The Way Around," wrote the song in anticipation for a performance in Antarctica. The upbeat yet laid back track is sure to become a fan favorite that gets everyone on their feet and wanting more from the talented artist.

McAnally is currently on tour with sold out shows all around the country where fans can hear the ten-time CMA Musician of the Year play all the incredible music from his extensive catalog including his own hits and see for themselves the mind-blowing talent of the man who has written, produced and sang for decades with no sign of slowing down.
