Mac Watts~ “Artist Spotlight!!”

He played in acoustic duo with another local singer, John Patterson, and later he started a band called “Mac Watts & the Shotgun 40.” Both proposed diversity of steady shows to support him while attending college. After graduating in December, Watts traveled to Music City to follow a career in country music as a singer/songwriter in Nashville, TN. Since February 2017, Watts has become a known name on Broadway.
