Neal McCoy has a new book out

LONGVEIW, TX (KLTV) - An East Texas country music artist is now venturing into the bookstores.

Neal McCoy has released a new book entitled 'A New Mountain to Climb', which deals with people he has met through his career that have inspired him.

Each chapter chronicles people he has met, some through the Angel Network, who have overcome losses, obstacles, and physical challenges to win in life.

Though he jokes that "he needs the money", McCoy says the book has something inspiring in it for everyone.

"We have our struggles everyday and being able to hear some of the stories these people provided to me, I want other folks to take the book and read it and say well I'm going through that, I can get through that, they're giving me inspiration here."

'A New Mountain to Climb' is available in book stores, and through the Neal McCoy Fan Club in Longview.
