Neil McCoy

Popular country music soloist Neil McCoy is set to take the stage in Poplar Bluff for an annual salute to veteran patients.

It’s all a part of the John J. Pershing VA Medical Center Valentines for Veterans Concert.

The two-time entertainer of the year will perform at the Black River Coliseum on February 14.

The event is the culmination of VA’s annual National Salute to Veteran Patients Week, a program designed to express appreciation for America’s veterans, increase community awareness of the local VA medical center, and encourage citizens to visit hospitalized Veterans.

McCoy is known for top singles such as No Doubt About It, You Gotta Love That, Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye, and If I Was a Drinking Man.

The Bob Lewis Family Band, a local bluegrass group from Doniphan, will open for McCoy.

The event is open to the public.

There is no admission charge to the concert, but veterans and their guests will need a ticket to attend.

Tickets will be distributed to veterans and their guests on Monday, Jan. 6.

Pre-show activities will begin at 6:00 p.m. on Feb. 14, with the main show starting at 6:30. Doors will open at 5:00 p.m.
