    The Hideout at the Rodeo: Mark McKinney

    In 2009, The Hideout will kick up its heels in between Reliant Center and Reliant Arena. Look for the big white tent packed with dancers and Texas bands. The Hideout is open for those 21 and older. It's your chance to hear some of the best in Texas music for just the price of admission to Reliant Park!

    Thursday, March 19:  Mark McKinney.

    Mark McKinney’s music evokes good times, plain and simple. Whether going to a backyard kegger, painting the town red with your rowdy friends, or simply being with those people who know you better than anyone else, Mark McKinney’s music takes you there.

    Equipped with a positive outlook and a true passion for creating and sharing music, McKinney is bursting onto the scene and having the time of his life.

    For his debut solo album, Get It On, McKinney took from his own experiences (as well as those of his closest friends and family) to produce a collection of songs that has been appropriately described as “foot-stompin’, sing-a-long, ornery country with a strong melody.” The album is, in Mark’s own words, “a journey through the mind of a Southern man.”

    And yet something in the fun and honesty applies to everyone – we can all relate to and take a little something from his music. McKinney, born and raised in Big Spring, TX, distinguishes himself from the typical “rockin’ country” artist by drawing from a wide range of influences.

    He credits his father for instilling in him an appreciation for upbeat, energetic songs. He blends his musical tastes as easily as drinking beer and eating barbecue, and he admits to a diverse musical background.

    “Although I grew up listening to country legends like Willie Nelson and Charlie Daniels, I was also heavily influenced by rock and pop.” This blend of influences has helped secure Mark a unique place on the Texas scene – and helped keep him from getting boxed into one genre.

    For Get It On, Mark teamed up with his best friend, Nashville-based producer Rob Dennis (Lynyrd Skynyrd,the fray,Cross Canadian Ragweed) who, along with producing Get It On, recently formed the independent record label Super Loud Music – the label Mark now calls home.

    In preparation for Get It On’s completion, Mark had been busy shuttling between Nashville and Austin – stopping only long enough to rock Texas country fans with his live show.

    While working on his debut CD, Mark teamed up with Kevin Fowler. Together the pair wrote a song called “What's Your Point,” which is slated to appear on Fowler's own upcoming record.

    Mark's live show can best be described as a high energy, full throttle experience. He is constantly changing his live show and playing a full schedule of dates across Texas and Oklahoma.

    Mark is a star on the rise with the experience and attitude needed to bring great new music to the masses. Mark McKinney is blazing onto the scene in a big way, and bringing the good times with him.
