What About The Concert With The 90's Superstar? Who's Coming?

One of the Arklatex's native sons, from Jacksonville, Texas, Neal McCoy will hit the stage at 8:00 pm on Sunday, October 2.

Maybe you're a little too young to remember the name, but rest assured, you'll recognize some of Neal McCoy's biggest singles including "You Gotta Love That", "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye", "The Shake", "Billy's Got His Beer Goggles On", "No Doubt About It" and "Wink."

And you might also recognize him from the national publicity he has received over the last several years as he daily uses his Facebook page to lead our country in the Pledge of Allegiance. Yesterday's Pledge made it 2,421 days in a row, with no exception!

To see just what a Neal McCoy concert is like, take a look at these videos of his live performances, and get ready for another great year at the Revel!
