LONGVIEW, Texas – After eleven albums, over twenty-five charted singles, and countless fans across the nation, charismatic country music sensation Neal McCoy adds published author to his impressive resumé with the nationwide release of his first book, “A New Mountain to Climb,” based on his newest single by the same name.
When McCoy recorded “A New Mountain to Climb,” he says he thought of people who have inspired him and changed his life. From there, the idea for the book evolved.
Each chapter of the book illuminates the character of those McCoy refers to as his heroes, those who climb life’s toughest mountains through serious physical handicaps, relentless pain, the loss of someone dear, the end of a dream, or leadership under pressure.
