In his off time, McCord enjoys live music, spending time with family, and watching and attending sporting events. There's really no sport he won't watch with full enthusiasm.
He and his wife, Jolene, live on the northwest side of town with their two dogs, Roper and Honey. They enjoy making their rounds to their favorite spots around the city as well as traveling around the world.
