The McNeills are sure to please with their wide variety of music, ranging from Contemporary Worship, Bluegrass and Country Gospel, and a Capella songs to the beloved hymns of the church.
Michelle, a Hoosier at heart, loves heading back to Clay City. When asked about returning home, she shares, “I have so many memories here, especially of my grandparents, John and Alta Edwards, my Uncle Joe and Aunt Arvana, and all my cousins. Getting to revisit my home state, my roots, is all about the things I love – fun, friends, family,and now music!” Their viral video, that has now dubbed the family “The Silo Singers”, was recorded in the family grain bins that once entertained Michelle for hours on end.
