Neal McCoy will be celebrating his 12th on the 6th. That is to say he will be releasing his 12th album, appropriately entitled XII, on March 6th.
The album marks his debut for Blaster Records and is being backed by some of country’s biggest names. It’s produced by CMA’s reigning Male and Female Vocalist of the Year, Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert (who had McCoy perform at their wedding), and renowned guitar-slinger, Brent Rowan. Shelton and Lambert even contributed background vocals for the album’s lead single, “A-OK.”
“Neal is not only a friend of mine, but my hero,” commented Blake Shelton about working with McCoy on XII. “Our first priority with this album was that Neal only cut songs that he truly loved and was excited about. That was very important to us.” Miranda Lambert added, “It was a blast seeing Neal and Blake together…had the place laughing all the time. I think fans will hear three different artists coming together on this album with their individual takes on the music.”
