Neal McCoy was born in Jacksonville, Tx and raised singing in the church choirs before founding an R&B band when he was young. He then switched his focus to country music and started performing in the bars and clubs in the area. In 1981 he won a talent contest that helped him secure a spot as an opening act for Charley Pride. He toured with Pride until 1990, releasing the singles “That’s How Much I Love You” and “That’s American” during this time. Charley Pride was a big influence on him during these early years in his career and the two have remained close ever since.
Neal has 3 Platinum, 1 gold album, numerous Entertainer of the Year and Video of the year awards. Just some of McCoys hits include “Wink”, “For A Change”, “If I Was a Drinkin’ Man” “Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On” a remake of Charley Pride’s “You’re My Jamaica.” McCoy honored his longtime mentor and friend Charley Pride in 2012 by releasing the album Pride: A Tribute to Charley Pride featuring guest appearances by Darius Rucker and Trace Adkins.
Neal still stays close to his East Texas roots by heading up a charity called the East Texas Angel Network, which helps provide money for families of seriously ill children.
