Hear the Cinnamon Shore Theme Song!

Listen Live at Port A Live Music Fest | Fri., Oct. 6

Mark McKinney of Austin, Texas, will sing the song he wrote for our community when he takes the stage from 7-9 pm at Cinnamon Shore North Town Center. Don't miss the fun! 

 Listen to 'Cinnamon Shore,' Written for Us!


Lyrics say: “I’ll take it all day, this way/Give me some more … Cinnamon Shore.”

Texas country music artist Mark McKinney says that being at Cinnamon Shore is  “like living in a summer song.” We recognize truth when we hear it, and we’re thrilled he’s put his singer-songwriter skills to work creating such an accurate, first-ever theme song for us!

In honor of our new expansion at Cinnamon Shore South, we asked Mark to write more than a jingle for us.We wanted a true, foot-stomping country music tune that celebrates beach living and the Cinnamon Shore lifestyle. Years later we're still humming along to our favorite theme song!

Live Performance on Oct. 6th! 

Don't miss Mark's live set, part of the Port A Live Music Fest this fall! There will be music during the 3-day Columbus Day weekend at venues across the island! So, make Cinnamon Shore your home base and book today while we still have availability!

Great lyrics and sing-along fun

“I was trying to paint the feeling of being down there. I love Port A, and I love Cinnamon Shore,” says the West Texas native. A resident of Austin for 25 years, he’s gotten to know Port Aransas well, especially after marrying a native, his wife, Cassie. The couple comes down regularly to see family and to vacation. Cassie works in the music industry, booking acts at Port A’s Third Coast Theater, and Mark plays at Cinnamon Shore often. He knows all too well that feeling of working in the bright lights-big city vibe of Austin and longing to get down to the Texas Coast. 

“I wanted the song to be catchy, but I didn’t want it to sound like a commercial,” he says. “I wanted it to be a song that just makes you want to get back down to the beach,” he says. It starts with the experience of arriving in Port Aransas, from the time you "hit the ferry” to getting to your “Mustang Island sanctuary.” 

Clever lyrics capture all the sensations beach lovers relish, including sinking into that beach chair at Cinnamon Shore. Mark says he’s already heard positive feedback from program directors in the radio business as the song makes the rounds. And he’ll be playing it in sets from Texas to Ireland, where he'll travel later this year. “I’ll tell them all about Cinnamon Shore,” he says. “I’ll probably play this song for years to come.” 

Hope to See You at the Concert!
