Neal McCoy Releases the Not-So-Country ‘You Don’t Know Me’

Neal mccoy

Neal McCoy, known for his high-energy stage shows and a slew of country music hit songs – including “Wink,” “The Shake,” “No Doubt About It,” and “Billy’s Got His Beer Goggles On,” just to name a few – is showing a different side of himself to his fans with the release of You Don’t Know Me, available in stores and digitally now.

Produced by eight time Grammy winner and Jazz music icon, Steve Tyrell, this trip through the American songbook may seem like a huge departure for the Texas-born artist. According to McCoy, this is a project he’s been waiting to do for years!

“This album has been on my “bucket-list” for a long, long time,” says McCoy. “I’ve loved and have been singing this music all my life, thanks to my parents. To work with the iconic Steve Tyrell was amazing, and we’re both from Texas so that made it extremely memorable. I really hope the fans enjoy this new, old side of me!”

Steve Tyrell shares an admiration for McCoy as well, stating: “Neal McCoy is the real deal… and I’m not just saying that because, like me, he hails from the great state of Texas! Sure, we have that in common, but we also share a love and respect for the Great American Songbook. This is the music we were raised on, the music our parents played, and the music that was the soundtrack to our younger years. It was a pleasure and an honor to work with this established country star and to witness how he put his own spin and sound on these timeless standards. My hat’s off to you, Neal! I’m so glad I got to know you and to help bring You Don’t Know Me to life!”

Have no fear, McCoy isn’t leaving Country music behind, he’s just trading his trademark Cowboy hat for a fedora – for just a moment or two.
