Known as the last man standing of bluegrass and the country music scheme, Mac Wiseman is celebrating his 93rd Birthday. Holly Molly, 93? Indeed, he’s an embodiment of “age is just a number.” He’s as loud as thunder, and he’s as great as the lighting. Once again, HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MAC WISEMAN!

Mac Wiseman…

He was born in Crimora, Virginia on May 23, 1925. Wiseman studied at the Shenandoah Conservatory in Dayton, Virginia. Then, he moved to Winchester, Virginia in 1960 and started his career as a disc jockey at WSVA-AM in Harrisonburg, Virginia.

Furthermore, he became the upright bass player in the band of the country artist Molly O’Day. After the group disbanded, he became the guitarist of their band “Foggy Mountain Boys.” Later he played with Bill Monroe’s “Bluegrass Boys.” In the 1950s, he was the star of “The Old Dominion Barn Dance” on WRVA in Richmond, Virginia.

Moreover, in the 1960s, Wiseman had successful concerts at the Hollywood Bowl and Carnegie Hall. In 1991 and 1992, he merged with producers Randall Franks and Alan Autry for the “In the Heat of the Night” cast CD “Christmas Time’s A-Comin’.”

In 2014, Wiseman released an album of songs that included his mother’s handwritten notes of songs. All those songs were written by his mother when Mac was a child. Additionally, the album is called “Songs From My Mother’s Hand.”
