Scotty McCreery makes a fans dream come true at his solo concert

I just wanted to add the tweet we received from Melissa :)
Hey! I wanted to thank you for getting my experience heard. My family and, I just sat and read EVERY single comment


Thank You
@MelissaIlene13 for allowing us to post your story on Fansofscotty.com.

Well McCreerian's get your Kleenex box out because you are going to need it! I read this story and my heart just melted and the tears flowed. Just when you think you can't love this boy anymore, he goes and does something like this! Scotty is always saying how much he appreciates his fans and this story shows that he really does care about his fans. Thank you once again Scotty McCreery for reminding us exactly why we have come to love you so much.


My Scotty Experience
I have loved Scotty McCreery, since the very beginning. Ever since I heard him sing “Baby Lock Them Doors.” I bought the songs he covered on American Idol, every week off of iTunes. He is the only person I have ever cared to vote for on American Idol. (Previous Seasons, included.)

When he was given the title, I cried. I was so happy that he won. He truly deserved it and, I completely idolized him by the time the season was over. I wanted nothing more than to see him in concert. I would tell my family that I just wanted to be close enough to reach out and, touch his hand.

My mom, found out that Scotty, was coming to Lancaster Ca. I freaked because, nobody I love ever comes to my town. It’s like, overlooked or something. Hahaha! Anyways… My mom got in contact with a local radio host named DJ Craig EC, (Through a Co Worker/Friend of hers. He happened to be best friends with Craig EC.)

My mom wrote the DJ a letter telling him my story, all I’ve been through and, had to overcome. (I have Cerebral Palsy! I haven’t been able to walk without assistance, since birth. Doctors told my then teenage mother, that I’d never amount to anything in life. I guess I proved them wrong because, I’m nearly a high school graduate with huge plans to go straight to college and become an entertainment journalist.) Anyway, enough back story. Hahaha!

So, Craig EC had me come up to his radio station and, handed me 3 tickets and, 2 Meet N’ Greet passes to Scotty’s concert, which happened to be 2 days away. (Tonight.) Of course, I was hysterical when he handed them to me. I thanked him so many times. I couldn’t wait to experience this with my mommy and, little sister. (Who are also huge fans.)

Today, I woke up knowing that tonight, I’d be meeting somebody I idolize. My sister got up and, we spent hours in the bathroom while she did my hair and, makeup. After everyone was ready, we headed over to the venue. I had butterflies all day and, they only intensified when we arrived.

After along wait Craig EC came up and told us that Scotty would come and meet us down stairs apart from all the others because, I couldn’t go up stairs like everyone else. My mom and, sister got their cameras ready because, they wanted to record my meeting with him.

Finally, Scotty made his way down the stairs following Craig EC and, Security. He walked straight up to me and, held out his hand. I took it and, by that time, I was on the verge of tears. He then ASKED PERMISSION, before hugging me. I hugged him and, I said: “I love you!” I was choked up and, fighting back tears. He then replied: “Awe, thank you! I love you too.” I WAS DYING INSIDE. TRYING SO HARD NOT TO COMPLETELY LOOSE IT. Then he took pictures with both my sister and, I. Then my mom, asked him if we all could take one together. He smiled and, said “Of course! Of course!” Security, was rushing him but, he didn’t care. Then he signed both of our Passes and, told me he’d be looking out for me in the crowd. He gave me another hug and, started to walk away. He noticed he had forgot to hug my sister again and, ran back to hug her.

After we met him, he performed a full setlist of songs. (Without a break.) I knew every single word to all of his songs. He dedicated “The Trouble With Girls” to us California Girls. <3 After running through the setlist, he came out for an Encore. Then it was all over as quickly as it began.

Tonight, was the best night of my existence. I will never forget a moment. The way he treated me. The way he hugged me. He was so, so, so, genuine. He didn’t have to tell me he loved me but, he did. He didn’t have to come down and, meet me downstairs but, he did.

He will always and, forever be FLAWLESS to me. <3

  2. I read this earlier today on idf and could not hold back the tears. What a heartwarming story and what a sweet, caring young man our Scotty is. Not only does it remind us of why we all love him so much, it also reminds us of what a great role model Scotty is and makes us re-evaluate the way we treat others. We all need a bracelet that says "What Would Scotty Do"? Absolutely loved reading this. Thanks to the brave young lady who shared her experience with us.

  9. I am lost for words about how Scotty is treating a lady. Asking for permission to hug shows what a true caring gentleman he is and at such a young age. I never shed tears for people I do not know but somehow this story dug me in. I am so happy for Scotty and on his success. I guess that's why I Love Him This Big.

  14. Melissa So happy for you!! I noticed in your story that you are going to become an entertainment journalist. I have a feeling that your path is going to cross Scotty's again. Next time, you will be doing a feature article on a young country superstar named Scotty. He will be grateful and appreciate the chance to be interviewed by you. Your story is very well written. Looks like you made the right career choice. You are already on your way!! Thank you for such a sweet story about our sweet Scotty!!

  17. Young people, most especially, must learn from Scotty, the "asking before hugging" thing and the thoughtful and caring ways, like running back to hug a person after realizing that he forgot to hug her. What a role model Scotty is! This is just one of the reasons why i love him this BIG!!!!

  21. What a touching story! I'm a Nurse Practitioner, I have many patients who have various challenges (stay strong Melissa). I can only imagine how much this experience meant to her and her family. I met Scotty in LV and told him I appreciated and loved him for being a positive role model to our youth, it really means so much to me being a NP. His response was "Well, thank you so much, I really appreciate you saying that. They really do face a lot of tough challenges these days, don't they"? How he treated this young lady is a perfect example of his integrity and character. Scotty your fans LYTB. We know you love your fans back too! (:

  23. I'm a caregiver of my quadriplegic husband for almost 7 years now. It's been stressful in so many ways but God always and always bring people as a vessel of His joy and love in my life. Then came the American Idol: Scotty McCreery. I'm "Moms for Scotty" and my kids are all grown up and can't believe how I'm so drawn to Scotty. There's such a radiance in him that's just undeniable. Now I know why so many of us are drawn to him: other than his golden voice, he has a heart of gold! So happy for Melissa! What a blessing!

    Also thank you for the ladies who are taking care of this fan site. It's now a part of my daily routine ...God bless Scotty and his awesome fan base!
