Mac Powell (born Johnny Mac Powell), originally from Clanton, Alabama, is an American singer, songwriter, producer, and musician who formed the Christian rock band Third Day with guitarist Mark Lee. Powell won the 2001 Gospel Music Association award for "Male Vocalist of the Year".
After his family moved from Alabama to Georgia, Powell attended McEachern High School in Powder Springs, Georgia, where he met Lee and became involved in a band known as "Nuclear Hoedown." This experience resulted in further collaboration when he began writing songs about his faith, formed a Christian band called Third Day, and eventually landed a record deal with Gray Dot Records. Powell lives in Atlanta, Georgia, with his wife, Aimee and five children: Scout, Cash, Camie Love, Emmanuel, and Birdie Clare.
