Singer, songwriter and guitarist Kevin MaC wins audiences over immediately as he explodes on stage with his exuberant personality. Although his roots are in country music and his original music is decidedly country, Kevin is far from a one-trick pony; he loves to surprise audiences with his own spin on hip hop, classic rock and sometimes even a boy band hit or two. Equally at home performing any of these genres, Kevin coined the term “Southern Swag” to describe his unique brand of music. According to Kevin, “Southern Swag is a cool country sound where hip-hop and country styles combine to create a fresh, sexy vibe.”
Kevin has opened for industry heavy hitters Kenny Chesney, Martina McBride, Phil Vassar, Darryl Worley, Trace Adkins, Colt Ford, LeAnn Rimes, Kip Moore, The Band Perry, Missy Elliott, Blacksreet, T. Mills, Timbaland, J. Cole and Ashanti. He re-recorded a "Southern Swag" version of the 1990s hit "No Diggity" with mega producer Teddy Riley, and he has written and collaborated with some of the most accomplished songwriters in the business, including hitmakers for Rascal Flatts, Diamond Rio, Beyonce and Britney Spears. In 2014 Kevin signed his first major record publishing deal with mega producer Dr. Luke's Prescription songs based out of Los Angeles, California.
Kevin always puts on an amazing show. From the moment he takes the stage he has the crowd in the palm of his hand.
This is a kid that's got it. You can feel it when he walks into the room.
As the tweet suggests, he killed it. Kevin really knew how to get the crowd going and have them involved. All of the songs were easy to dance to, sing along with, and easy to enjoy. Overall, just a great experience.
Kevin Mac was an absolute pleasure to work with for last Saturday's outdoor event. He was there hours early, advanced the show very well, and played killer sets for four hours. Everyone was singing and dancing the entire time - definitely bringing Kevin and his crew back up to Bucknell soon!
Overall, the performance was excellent. Kevin is very down-to-earth and beyond easy to work with. The crowd thoroughly enjoyed him and his music. They sang along, chimed in, and cracked jokes with him.
Kevin was a hit & Penguin Productions at YSU wants to bring him back in May. He was very easy to work with and went with the flow! He made a good impression with every single person he met! Thank you for all your help in making this a great success!

We had such a fun show with Kevin last night. We weren’t sure how country would land with our students, but they were super into it and Kevin did a great job of engaging them.
Yes, he was great! Everyone enjoyed it and hopefully we can do some more live music like that again.
He was so great! He had the crowd laughing the whole time and at the same time he had people loving his music! He was very easy to work with, a very nice guy! I think he had a lot of fun performing for our students, he definitely seemed to be having fun while he was on stage! Thank you guys again! :)
Kevin put on an awesome show today and did an excellent job interacting with the audience. I have heard nothing but positive feedback about his performance! He was easy to work with and is a very talented musician.
Kevin was amazing. Probably the best performer we've had for this event the entire year. Thanks for letting me know about him!
Kevin was great, so much more than I was expecting. The humor in his act was an added bonus and I didn't know he could play the guitar so well. The crowd absolutely loved him and multiple people said he was the best act we've had all year. I'll be sure to let next year's Director of Music Series know about him and yourself. Thank you for your patience and hard work to get the show organized with us. It was a pleasure!
Kevin was great. Our Executive Board enjoyed getting to know him and our students really enjoyed his performance. Musically talented AND funny – it was perfect! - Assistant Director of Student Life
Yes, the crowd loved him! He was super nice and we all really enjoyed having him visit. I think he has been one of the best musicians that we have worked with. - Coffeehouse Chair
Everything went GREAT! Kevin was easy to work with and is an amazing performer (he can definitely entertain a crowd).
I will most definitely recommend for future events here at CSUN.
Kevin's performance was great! He was very easy to work with, very chill and molded to our institution perfectly. The audience definitely enjoyed his humor, his music, and his discussions before and after the show. We would absolutely recommend him to others and possibly bring him back in a couple of years.
