Country singer and Longview native Neal McCoy left for Nashville today. His fans are hoping he'll return with the Home Depot Humanitarian Award. He was recognized for his work with the East Texas Angel Network. It's raised money for families with seriously ill children for the last 10 years.
McCoy was nominated more than two months ago for the honor, given by the Academy of Country Music.
