Scotty McCreery Is Coming To Town


By Fran Paolinelli
LANCASTER – Baby, lock them doors and turn the lights down low, Scotty McCreery is coming to town! McCreery, who received the most votes during last year’s American Idol contest, is scheduled to appear Jan. 29 at the University of Antelope Valley Pioneer Events Center in Lancaster. After winning American Idol, McCreery released his first album and promptly became the American Country Award Winner for the New Artist of the Year. That album, “Clear as Day” featured his single “I Love You This Big”, which was a Top 15 Hit. The video for the song became Number One with a week of its release. McCreery has been described as an amazing singer with tremendous vocal control and depth, something his Antelope Valley fans will be able to hear for themselves. Singing is nothing new for the young man. Growing up in his hometown of Garner, NC, he and his older sister Ashley sang in the church choir with their parents. He also sang in his high school choir, which is known for consistently winning competitions. McCreery seems unchanged by his sudden fame. “I always told them on American Idol, What you see is what you get.” McCreery once said, adding that he really is the same on stage as off. Tickets for the performance, which begins at 8 p.m., are $35 to $75 and are available online at www.uavpec.com It has been reported that tickets are selling fast. PEC is located at 45000 Valley Central Way in Lancaster. PEC’s goal is to bring top-tier entertainment acts, conventions, sporting events, and other entertainment venues to the Valley.
For more information about PEC or the concert, call (661) 726-1911, Ext. 150.

  1. Gosh, it's so nice to read such warm write-ups on Scotty. Show them what stuff you are made of in your first solo concert and on your tours with Brad.

    Keep it up, young man. You are my favorite AI of all 10 seasons. - Molly

  7. I really hope and pray that somebody will do a good recording of his solo performance at Lancaster and post it on utube for those of us who are unable to be there. Also, it will help promote Scotty as an artist since this is going to be his solo concert and his first. Please! Please some good samaritan please do it for us. Thank you.
