The 80-year-old musician has garnered many accolades including Grammy’s, Academy of Country Music Awards, Dove Awards and a place in the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame.

Neville recorded music for almost 60 years with his last release being Apache in 2016.

The entertainer is probably best known for his duets with Linda Ronstadt in the early 1990’s.
