Scotty McCreery Performs During Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade

Scotty McCreery and Rodney Atkins were two of the special musical guests featured on Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade that broadcast live on NBC on today. Both McCreery and Atkins made country music proud as they represented the musical format with class and taste.

Atkins rode the Ocean Spray float down the streets of New York, looking handsome in a black wool coat and his signature ball cap. As he and the others on the float made their way through the parade, Atkins sang a chorus and the bridge to his recent chart-topping hit, ‘Take a Back Road.’ Atkins looked cool and relaxed as he was all smiles, waving and blowing kisses to those who braved the chilly city weather for the annual Thanksgiving parade.

McCreery stood atop the Morton Salt float, surrounded by gingerbread boys and girls, cupcakes and bakers as he sang his current single, ‘The Trouble With Girls.’ Like Atkins, McCreery was bundled up in wool jacket, but dressed his up with matching gloves, a red turtleneck and a grey scarf to keep from getting too cold on the float with temperatures in the mid-40s. McCreery handled his performing duties like a seasoned pro, as the kids on the float were beside themselves knowing that the teen heartthrob singer was only inches away.
