Strait Meets Scotty McCreery

Last month, George Strait made a surprise appearance at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium for his longtime record label MCA. Also present that day was American Idol winner Scotty McCreery. Scotty performed several Strait hits during the Idol competition. George told Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton he enjoyed meeting the Idol winner: “I met him before the label showcase. I wish him all the best. It sounds like he’s got everything going on for him. Winning that accomplishment is quite an accomplishment. I can only imagine what his days are like. He told me he was still trying to graduate high school.”

On the Idol finale, Scotty performed “Check Yes Or No,” as chosen for him by George. Lon asked Strait about that. “I think I was fishing at the time when they wanted me to pick a song for him for the finale, and I thought he did a great job on it. I thought it would fit him at that age.”

  2. Tarah - I am wondering if there is any way I can place this video on my pc. If so, can you tell me how to do it? After a while these posts will "drop off" will they not? I really enjoy watching all the idol performances and this has most if not all on there. Please let me know. Thank you.

  3. I saw Scotty perform "Check Yes or No" on the Opry, very early on, before his CD was out. He didn't have is guitar, and he did quite a bit of "acting" ....movements, facial, arms, moving back and forth across the stage. It was absolutely great. Smiling.......eye contact with the audience, just really great. Wish I could watch it again. Do they archive the Grand Ole Opry on YouTube?

    I saw that video from his first appearance at the Opry and it was really a great performance. He said he didn't have but 1 song, ILYTB, which he sang first, so he was going to sing one of King George's song "Check Yes Or No". He did great with the crowd interaction, and that light tan leather jacket was so pimp LOL.

  5. GeeMaJ -Phoenix 8:14PM - I watch that same video almost daily and then watch the later one when he sang TTWG and TOKG. Love to listen to them. I have them both on my favorites list. If you type in your browser Grand Old Opry/Scotty McCreery they will come up. ILYTB is under the Grand Old Opry Debut. Hope this helps and that you will enjoy them as much as I have. God Bless Kait, Or
