Born in Lone Star and raised in Austin, Texas, Darwin Macon grew up around music. At home, he loved his Mom's country favorites like George Strait, Alabama and Conway Twitty. While working summers for his Dad's construction company,
Macon was exposed to classics like AC/DC, John Cougar Mellencamp, and Lynyrd Skynyrd.
As an all-star athlete in high school, Darwin had multiple scholarship offers, but chose ﬂight school instead. "I'd dreamed of two things my entire life," Macon says, "singing and ﬂying." After earning his pilot's license, he and his Dad launched a
professional drag racing team featuring Darwin as the driver. For several years, the team toured around Texas, winning events regularly. During this time, Darwin continued performing music every chance he could get.
After losing both parents, Darwin's passion for music led him to pursue his dream of making music full time. He invested in a pro-level sound system and concert light show, a tour bus, and gathered a team of experienced professional musicians who
share his rigorous work ethic. Macon and his band teamed up with well-known Nashville producer/songwriter Bobby Terry (Faith Hill, Alan Jackson, Montgomery Gentry, Brad Paisley, Trace Adkins) to produce his debut album, a six song EP aptly
titled "Long Time Coming."
Macon is currently traveling the Texas roads and breaking attendance records with his charismatic personality, energetic and captivating stage show, and talented backing band.
Whether on the sports ﬁeld, in the air, on the road, or in front of a microphone, two words have consistently been used to describe Macon: "professional and passionate."
