Neal: When I'm home I try and just take care of errands because I'm on the road so much. And so much goes on while you're gone that when you get home, you usually have a lot of stuff you need to catch up on. And I have a motorcycle dealership, A Yamaha dealership, in our hometown; so I kind of watch over that a little bit and usually try and hang out with my wife and kids as much as I can.
Neal: Some people say, 'I don't care if they like me or not.' Not me! I want people to like me, and if they don't like me, I want to do something about it. And the way I'm able to do that is by singing and entertaining. It's the best way I know to get through to people.
Neal: I hope to teach my kids right from wrong, and teach them to have a decent attitude about life. I enjoy life, and I hope my kids will get that from me.
Neal: I like to move around when I sing. I guess that's why those 'groove' songs come natural to me.
Neal: (On performing)When the audience is really into it, it just doesn't get any better. On stage is where I belong.
