Scotty McCreery burst onto the national music scene in 2011 at age 17, quickly establishing himself as one of country music’s hottest new stars. By age 21, the talented singer/songwriter has sold more than 2.5 million albums and received both Platinum and Gold album certifications, debuted three consecutive albums at No. 1 on a Billboard chart, achieved one Gold and three Platinum-certified singles as well as two Top Ten hits, toured with Brad Paisley and The Band Perry, headlined his own tours, earned industry and fan accolades, amassed more than three million followers on Facebook and Twitter, received more than 150 million YouTube views…and he’s just getting started!
His deep voice and irresistible sound create the perfect blend of contemporary and traditional country. With more than 300 live shows under his belt across the U.S., Canada, the Philippines and the Caribbean, McCreery has quickly become a crowd favorite appealing to all ages. His loyal fans – the McCreerians – are among the most dedicated and enthusiastic in the country music world.
After winning Season Ten of “American Idol” and capturing the hearts of millions of television viewers nationwide, McCreery released his debut album, which was the best-selling solo album released by a country artist in 2011. Indeed, he became the youngest man in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart.
When he steps off the stage, McCreery returns to being a typical “guy next door.” After winning “American Idol,” the gifted performer graduated from his local high school and later enrolled at North Carolina State University. An avid sports fan and outdoorsman, he can be found at Wolfpack basketball games, attending the Super Bowl, or playing golf around the country as he tours. A proponent of giving back, McCreery has supported a host of charitable causes including St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, The 12.14 Foundation, World Vision, MLB RBI (Reviving Baseball in Inner Cities), The Opry Trust Fund, and a variety of organizations in his native North Carolina.
