Week-in-the-Park: Meet the Bands
As Week-in-the-Park and Veterans Day draws near, let's take some time to get to know some of the musical acts performing in the upcoming events.
Blackbird Anthem

The multiple award winning band, Blackbird Anthem, is on a mission to help revive original southern rock music while giving back to the veteran community.

Fronted by decorated combat veteran Adam C. Martin, the band creates a sound reminiscent of the age of vinyl where rock, country, and blues merge somewhere below the Mason-Dixon line. Based out of Florida and Texas, Blackbird Anthem plays across the country at festivals, veteran events, traditional venues, and more.

Blackbird Anthem will be performing at Veterans Memorial Park Pensacola for Music-in-the-Park on November 4th.

Check out Blackbird Anthem's hit song and winner of the 2023 Josie Music Award for Social Impact Music Video of the Year, MOH. The song and music video depict the heroic actions of SSG Don Jenkins (US Army, CONGRESSIONAL MEDAL OF HONOR) on January 6, 1969 in Vietnam.

Josh Davis

Josh Davis, a combat disabled veteran, has found solace and healing in the power of music. Through his captivating blend of outlaw and classic country music, he has embarked on a remarkable journey of overcoming PTSD/TBI, using his soulful and transparent lyrics and his resonant baritone voice to create a musical experience like no other.

From the moment his voice reaches your ears, Josh’s songs transport you to a simpler time, inviting you to explore the depths of his emotions and experiences.

Take a look at Josh Davis's fourth professionally recorded single I Don't miss you, Anymore, an outlaw country ballad about freedom and moving on.

Mac McAnally

McAnally is the guitarist in Jimmy Buffett’s Coral Reefer Band and is recognized by his notable credits in country music with songs cut by Alabama (“Old Flame”), Kenny Chesney (“Back Where I Come From”), Sawyer Brown (“All These Years”), Shenandoah (“Two Dozen Roses”) and many others.

Turning conversations into song is one of McAnally’s greatest gifts, one that led to his induction into the Nashville Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2007. Two of the songs from Once in a Lifetime come from that era. He co-wrote “Good Guys Win” for the 2006 film, Hoot, and felt like its optimistic tone needed to be heard in this divided time. McAnally has won a record-setting 10 trophies as Musician of the Year from the Country Music Association.

Mac McAnally will be performing at First Baptist Church of Pensacola in Chipley Hall for the Veterans Memorial Park Fundraiser Dinner on Veterans Day, November 11th.


Watch Mac perform Back Where I Come From live at Bluegrass Underground back in April 2016.
