West Valley City » Start with Scotty McCreery, the latest American Idol. Add fast-rising stars The Band Perry. Finish with country superstar Brad Paisley. And mix with the electricity of a sold-out Maverik Center.

What you had Friday night was nirvana for thousands of music fans.

McCreery opened with a seven-song set. Obviously young, the slender American Idol has a deep voice to go with a slight stature. He showed off a bit of charisma, the ability to sing some slow-paced ballads and a nice hit in “The Trouble With Girls.”
