April 10, 2017 – San Antonio, Texas – Texas Attorney Doug McNeel and his band are back again with a humorous and heartfelt song. Doug McNeel and The Sons of Maverick have released a new song and video entitled “Labrador.” Another single from their album, Great Awakenings.
McNeel’s love and care for his animals gave rise to this outstanding humorous song. Labrador.A song is sure to put a smile on your face and make you want to dance along. McNeel credits his foray into songwriting to his grandmother who operated a working cattle and dude ranch near San Antonio. Doug notes: “When I was sixteen I worked at the ranch during the summer and at the same time was learning to play the guitar. One evening my grandmother asked me why I was singing other people’s music. ‘Why don’t you write your own songs like your grandfather used to do?’ I was flattered that she thought I had it in me to do this. That was the spark that got me started as a songwriter, and I am deeply grateful for the gift of her challenge to me.” Since then McNeel has been writing songs shaped by the folk, country and gospel influences from his early years
The result of these influences combined with McNeel’s own spiritual insights and life experiences is what he likes to call “soul nourishing Texas-style Americana music.”
“We all want insight into how our furry companions think, and we want to understand the silly, quirky and apparently irrational behaviors they demonstrate,” “Their stunning flashes of brilliance and creativity are reminders that they may not be Einstein but are sure closer to humans than we thought.”
“I have always wanted to bring something of value to people with my songs. I think that is important, to try to write beyond myself, to write about the great things that we all experience in our lives.” For Doug, that is what folk music is all about–a music rich in the human experience and spirit
On stage, DougMcNeel is an intimate, compelling performer, mixing in traditional tunes with his own contemporary folk ballads. His humorous tales of life and observations of everyday people provide an entertaining blend of story and song.
