#MACCMonday – The Voice’s Red Marlow

This benefit festival for St Jude Children’s Research Hospital features four days and over forty artists joining together to help find an end to childhood cancer. For 2018, the MACC is bringing a young classic country artist to this year’s event. Red Marlow appeared on Season 13 of NBC’s The Voice, and notched a Top 4 finish in the televised singing competition. Mentored by country superstar, Blake Shelton, Red Marlow’s traditional country sound won over fans nationwide. This preacher’s son from northern Alabama grew up singing in church, and even has some bluegrass in his background. Knowing that many bluegrass crowds are also fans of traditional country sounds, seeing artists such as The Malpass Brothers, Mo Pitney, and Gene Watson on festival lineups isn’t entirely uncommon these days, and have provided a nice change of pace during multi-day festivals. The MACC is very excited to welcome Red Marlow to this year’s event, as he joins the fight to help bring an end to childhood cancer.


Festival Underway Thursday
