He has also written several television theme songs, performed live on national television, and has inspired scores of up-and-coming artists of tomorrow.

Country – Jazz – Metal - Top 40. During his storied 20 plus year career, Michael McMahon has played them all with a variety of bands. And now, he plays bass and sings for Soul Circus Cowboys.

Soul Circus Cowboys’ first album, Lay It Down, quickly established the band as a musical force to be reckoned with. Critics and fans praised the song for its message and authenticity, the band for its astute musicianship and the album as a collection of well-told stories, each crafted by songwriters who’ve “been there – done that.” The video for Lay It Down became a fan favorite on country music video channels, including Great American Country (GAC) and Country Music Television (CMT). Soul Circus Cowboy’s single, That’s The Way We Roll offers an equally eclectic combination of sounds, styles and stories, all written (or co-written) by McKnight, the master storyteller.
From the intense vocal delivery and to-the-point lyrics of She’s A Lot Like Whiskey to the emotionally wrenching, instrumentally charged If You’re Gonna Leave; That’s The Way We Roll rounds off the band’s rough edges, exposing a more polished, yet gutsier, grittier kind of country rock.
The band is back in the studio to record their follow up record to the chart breaking "Tailgate Country" BILLBOARD TOP 50 "Tailgate Country"
