Rising Country recording artist Charlie McNeal joins the Wrangler NFR Central Stage today at 11:30AM. Come watch his interview and performance at Cowboy Christmas booth 3247.
McNeal is a California native who grew up just a few short hours from the Bakersfield sound music scene.
“No one knew that I had a secret desire to be a singer,” McNeal says. “But we had a death in our family and folks were at the house, crying and hurting. I pulled out my guitar and started singing. Immediately, I saw the effect it had on people– -that I could help alleviate some of their sorrow just by singing songs– -that’s when I knew what I wanted to do.”
