Chancie Neal’s latest single “Rodeo Money” is a throwback to her rodeo roots that started in Calhoun, Louisiana. Chancie knows first hand the hard work that goes into rodeo life as well as the rewards of winning some rodeo money. When she was nine years old she set the record as the youngest world champion barrel racer, a record that still has not been beaten. In addition to competing at the rodeo she took every opportunity to perform as well.
The video flashes between clips of Chancie in her competition days and her current life as a country music star. When asked how the rodeo compared to life as a musician Chancie said, “Growing up around the rodeo prepared me for life as a musician, it was a lot of hard work with long nights traveling to the next competition.” The video features cameos from Landry Orr, an up and coming rodeo star and her dad, who played a major role in making Chancie the strong woman she is today.
“Rodeo Money” was written with Dan Alley and co-produced by Tommy Cecil and Jay Brunswick. It has gained over 70,000 streams on Spotify since its release late last year, making it her biggest song yet. We are excited to premiere the video of “Rodeo Money” with you and share the background for you to get to know Chancie a little better.
Look for big things this year from Chancie with a new five song EP coming out and featured vocals on Luke Bryan’s new song, “Where Are We Goin'” set to be released on April 24, 2020.
