Scotty McCreery’s Longtime Friend Recalls ‘Mini Elvis Concerts’ During Their School Bus Days

After another solid performance this week, it’s unlikely ‘American Idol‘ contestant Scotty McCreery will be returning home soon. That’s bittersweet news for his closest friends in Garner, who are beginning to realize their relationships with the country singer could be forever changing.
Still, longtime friend Brett Bailey tells Taste of Country he’s excited to see McCreery chasing his dream. He knows they’ll remain close, and that fame won’t change his character. “[He's an] excellent friend, always there for you no matter what,” Bailey says.
The two Garner High School students have been friends since spending hard time in the same church nursery. Bailey says he knew his friend had a special talent long before the humble singer would admit it. “He started singing Elvis on the back of the bus,” Bailey says, referring to the elementary school bus. “It was almost like a mini Elvis concert on the back of the school bus.”
The high school senior visited McCreery in Hollywood last month, where he got to take in Motown Week at ‘Idol.’ He was surprised at how small the studio was, comparing it to a high school auditorium. While he didn’t get to spend much time with McCreery, Bailey did steal one token to brag about: “The fact that I got a kiss on the cheek from Pia [Toscano], and I got a picture of it … that kind of made all the guys at school jealous

         American Idol theme for April 20, 2011 Top 7 is Songs From The 21st Century

Musical guest will be Katy Perry and David Cook.  David Cook has not had a single out in 2years, and the last 3 years have not seen good sales for the idols.  He had 2 singles off his debut release which did well, but not well enough to release a 3rd single.  Hopefully the AI exposure will jump start the single.

Scotty McCreery’s Best Friend Brett Bailey Dishes on ‘American Idol’ Elimination Night Dinners

By: Billy Dukes  |  7 hours ago
Kevin Winter, Getty ImagesFor many reasons, results night is always an cathartic night for ‘American Idol‘ contestants. For most, it’s relief mixed with the pain of losing someone you’ve grown close to. One of the few outsiders allowed into the weekly “elimination dinner,” a close friend of Scotty McCreery, describes the close-knit group as one big family.

“Everyone means well to one another. They love one another genuinely,” Brett Bailey, best friend of Garner, N.C. contestant McCreery, tells Taste of Country. “They just want the best for each other.”

The high school senior spent three days in Hollywood last month during Motown Week. No one was sent packing that week — Casey Abrams was saved by ‘Idol’ judges then — but Bailey, who’s also McCreery’s baseball teammate, describes the dinner as emotional. They enjoyed Italian food, but Bailey jokes that his friend is really missing a few comforts from home, including biscuits from fast food chain BoJangles and southern sweet tea  Read more here
