Katie McNeil is not a newcomer to the entertainment industry. She has had extensive experience working as a producer on a wide array of projects and she has also managed the career of one of the greatest musicians of all time, Neil Diamond. While she has earned fame in her own right through the caliber of her work, her biggest claim to mainstream popularity is her relationship and eventual marriage to the award-winning musician and singer-songwriter, Neil Diamond, who has had the rare and distinct honor of selling over 100 million records over the course of his career. Neil stole the heart of music lovers from all around the world with songs like Crackling Rosie, Song Sung Blue, and Desiree. Many of his songs have earned the number one spot on several reputable platforms, including the Hot 100.
To say that Neil is an icon in music would be somewhat of an understatement. He is one of the most influential artists ever and Katie worked with him for some of his active years until the music legend retired from the scene after he was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. Katie has served as his manager before taking on the role of a loyal and fiercely supportive wife. It’s not easy being married to one of the greatest musicians the world has ever seen, but Katie appears to enjoy every moment of it.

After completing work on the project, she was offered the job of working as his manager which she excitedly accepted. She left what she was doing to focus on her managerial responsibilities. However, things became a little complicated as the musician had begun to kindle amorous affections for Katie McNeil. She was reluctant to give the relationship a chance in the beginning, because he was a client but she soon realized there was no point trying to fight her feelings, so she gave in and they started dating. Neil was quick to announce to the world that he was love struck and introduce the beautiful Katie as the girlfriend who had left him in that state.
