Living on a farm just outside Nashville TN keeps DOWN HOME'S feet in the dirt and their focus clear. Both Mac and Sharon come from generations of farm families that made their living from the dirt. Their faith and family values are deep-seated in the legacy of families who had to work together to survive. Mac and Sharon’s children, Michael and AnnMarie know what it means to work hard, love their country, respect people around them and most of all, love and protect their family. If you happen to run into DOWN HOME FAMILY at the local café or on a main stage performing somewhere in the country you’ll immediately feel drawn in by their country ways and DOWN HOME approach to life and music.
Known as one of the hardest working groups in the industry, DOWN HOME works hard without losing sight of what’s most important…Faith and Family. DOWN HOME’S ability to flow easily between different musical styles including country, gospel and pop make them one of the most versatile groups available. Not only can each member, hold their own vocally with power and passion but together they possess that full bodied mesmerizing blend that astounds.
With the debut of their newest album FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING, get ready to dive behind the music curtain and see what makes this family work.
In recording their sophomore album, FIRST TIME FOR EVERYTHING, DOWN HOME FAMILY traveled past the surface and moved right to the heart of issues that have challenged and molded who they are as a family. “We were born out of the dirt and we're going to leave this life dirty, there’s no escaping that” says Mac.
So don’t worry if there’s mud on your boots, they understand. If life has done a number on you and knocked you down, they understand. If you need a ride down that country road to breathe that fresh air again, Climb in let's GO. DOWN HOME wants you to know we’re ONE BIG FAMILY and we’re in this together. Kick your feet up, take a load off, enjoy the music and friendship of DOWN HOME and remember….there’s a “FIRST TIME for EVERYTHING”.
