Platinum-selling songwriter, Chancie Neal, is no stranger to performing as she began touring with Luke Bryan on his Farm Tour in 2010 when she was only 14 years old, She kept that opening spot for the next seven years alongside Cole Swindell, Sam Hunt, Chris Janson and The Peach Pickers. In 2013, she also joined Bryan’s Spring Break Tour where she had the opening spot for two years playing for crowds of more than 150,000 in 2014.
After taking a break from the road, Neal spent the next three years immersed in the Nashville writing world by teaming up with some of the most talented songwriters in the city. All of that experience led Neal to write “Over You” with Jen Stegall and Terry Sawchuk (co-wrote the 2012 ASCAP song of the year Barefoot Blue Jean Night recorded by Jake Owen). She brings a soulful sound to this emotional country song with five more tracks coming on her EP that will release later this year.
“Chancie Neal is what country music is all about. Leaving everything behind to chase this crazy dream,” said hit songwriter, Ben Hayslip. “One of the best pure, honest country voices I’ve ever heard.”
While chasing that crazy dream, Neal landed a deal in 2012 with Sony/ATV Music Publishing and by 2013 her song “Ducks in a Row” was part of the Duck Commander series, featuring the Robertson family from the AE show, Duck Dynasty. Later that year, she co-wrote the song “Hairy Christmas” that was recorded by old friend, Bryan. The song was part of the Duck Dynasty Christmas album, Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Reunion, released by Universal Music Group and went platinum.
She’s opened for Jake Owen, Florida Georgia Line and Pat Green. Neal was also part of the official CMA Fest lineup from 2013-16 and then featured at the WSM Radio CMA Fest events this summer. She turns heads when people find out that she hit the EDM Top 100 with Hunter for “In Your Heart” and she still holds the record as the youngest World Champion Barrel Racer. At only 24 years old, Neal’s new music is available on iTunes, Spotify and Amazon Music.
Schedule Information Will Be Announced Closer to the Festival.
