Scotty McCreery performed at City Place, Palm Beach, FL

I know this is "old news" but didn't see that it had been posted on the site yet

Garner Magnet High School graduated a platinum artist when country crooner Scotty McCreery walked across the stage to receive his diploma, with honors, just over a week ago. It was a huge week for the 18-year old who won the 10th season of American Idol in May, 2011. The boy with a man’s voice won his third major music award when he took home the ‘buckle’ for Breakthrough Video of the Year from CMT, and right after the show he jetted back to his North Carolina hometown to don a royal blue mortar board and gown and graduate with his class.

On Tuesday, he and country singer Colton James performed a free concert at CityPlace in West Palm Beach.

Brad Paisley, Scotty McCreery & TBP perform tonight at Susquehanna Bank Center

Susquehanna Bank Center Information:

The Susquehanna Bank Center is located in Camden, New Jersey, and is quite unique to say the least. This venue consists of both an outdoor amphitheatre and an indoor theater which makes it one of the most versatile venues in the eastern part of the United States. The official name of this venue is the Susquehanna Bank Center. This venue is located on the Delaware River, and is directly across it from the city of Philadelphia. For this reason, many people from both states show up for concerts and other events at this venue on a regular basis. In 1995 this venue opened as the Blockbuster Sony Music Entertainment Center. Then it was called the Tweeter Center for many years. Susquehanna Bank bought the naming rights and they will own these for several more years. The Susquehanna Bank Center is more or less the first venue of its kind because it can host concerts year round thanks to its indoor/outdoor setup. During the summer months the Susquehanna Bank Center can accommodate approximately 25,000 fans. When the cold weather hits this venue can become fully enclosed, and can host more than 1,700 fans in a climate controlled atmosphere. As you can see, no matter what time of the year it is there is usually a concert going on at the Susquehanna Bank Center. If you are going to be visiting this area you should consider getting tickets for a concert at this venue. Many great performers have taken the stage at the Susquehanna Bank Center over the years, and it is safe to say that this is going to hold true for many more to come.

Independence Day celebrations offer fun, family and an 'American Idol'

This is McCreery's second performance in Utah, after the "American Idol Live!" tour, so he already knows what to expect.  "I'm excited and can't wait to see you guys up there," he said.
Anticipation for the holiday creates its own kind of excitement in Utah. With a plethora of parades, pie-eating contests and firework shows to look forward to, the state isn't lacking any quantity of Independence Day celebrations.

Scotty McCreery Reflects on Life After ‘American Idol’ and What the Future Holds

Scotty McCreery
Courtesy of Universal Music Group
Scotty McCreery has been on a steady climb to the top since being crowned the winner of ‘American Idol.’ His debut album, ‘Clear as Day,’ became an instant hit with his loyal fanbase, which allowed it to reach platinum certification soon after its release. The album spawned three hit singles — ‘I Love You This Big’ and ‘The Trouble With Girls,’ both of which have been certified gold for digital sales exceeding 500,000 downloads — as well as his latest release, ‘Water Tower Town.’
In 2012 alone, McCreery has picked up multiple awards, achieved a dream with opening spot on Brad Paisley‘s Virtual Reality Tour, and perhaps most importantly, graduated from high school. With college in the near future, McCreery is also looking ahead to his sophomore album on 19/Interscope Records/Mercury Nashville.
Despite his busy schedule, Taste of Country managed to snag a few minutes with McCreery to get an update on all his current and future career plans. One thing is obvious — he is showing no signs of slowing down!
June has been a pretty special month for you with winning your first CMT Music Award for USA Breakthrough Video of the Year and graduating from high school all in the same week. How do you find balance between living a “normal life” and being a country music superstar?
Scotty McCreery: My hometown has really allowed me to come home and be normal whenever I am home. Going home to school, the kids didn’t treat me any different. They treated me like the same ol’ kid. Because of that, I got to kind of be normal and live life in both worlds. It was fun for me. High school’s over now and we’re on to college in the fall. It’s been a good couple of months for me.
With the CMT Music Awards being fan-voted and you having America on your side, did you feel like you had the advantage over the other artists in that category?
You never go into an award show thinking you have the upper-hand and that you’re going to win, but with it being fan voted, for me, I know that I had a good shot because my fans have been absolutely incredible to me. They got me through ‘American Idol’ and they’re still with me today. I see them all the time on Facebook and Twitter and stuff, and they’re so excited about what’s going on. It’s cool to have that kind of fanbase. I was anxious to see what happened [at the awards], and I was really glad to see that we got the belt buckle. I was in good graces with the company I was in. The rest of the artists [in that category] are so good and so deserving. It was definitely cool to get it.
Do you have a special place in your house where you are starting to put all of these trophies?
I don’t really get caught up with where I put them, but the family, they like to put them up on the TV stand. I think that’s where they’re at right now. That way all the neighbors can come by and see it. They’ve been really excited [about everything] as well.
Have you started the process of working on the next album yet?
Yeah, we’re just starting the process of getting songs in, and I’m starting to write a little bit. We’re starting it … the wheels are turning! We’ll see when we get it out.
Do you think the content on the next project will be more of the same, or are you planning on mixing it up a little?
No, we’re going to try and change it up a little bit. You don’t want to just keep doing a little bit of the same stuff. I think on the first album, we had a good-sounding country album and it showed who I was as an artist. This one, we want to dig a little deeper … talk about some real things in life and for me, not get caught up in all the love songs. There were a lot of them on the first album. I want to start talking about real things, and hopefully have a fun album with a few fun songs. I want to make an album that people want to listen to and want to hear and that they can relate to.

You’re currently out on the road on Brad Paisley’s Virtual Reality Tour. How has that been going so far?
Brad is the man. He really is. He’s such a class act and a classy guy. I’m extremely honored and humbled to be on this tour. He’s a funny guy. He definitely doesn’t take himself too seriously or the tour too seriously. He likes to just go out there and have fun and play music. That’s what it’s all about. He’s a good guy to learn from on my first tour.
You are no stranger to playing for the masses, coming from ‘Idol,’ but actually seeing the size of the crowds on Brad’s tour… Do you get nervous at all before taking the stage?
The nervousness kind of hits me before I take the stage. Once I get out there, it kind of calms down, and it feels like that’s where I’m supposed to be and what I’m supposed to be doing. But before I take the stage, that’s when the butterflies start flying for me.
Has there been any talk of musical collaborations with anybody on that tour, or outside of the tour, in the near future?
I’d love to. We haven’t really talked about that kind of stuff yet. If it comes around, doing something like that with Brad or anybody else in the industry that has really put a stamp on it … I’d love to.
So you have hit singles, a hit album, are on a major tour and are winning awards. What are some other immediate goals that you are reaching for right now?
I’m just looking forward to this next year. I’m really trying to reach out to the fans and stuff. The second album, I’m not sure if we’re going to get it out by the end of this year or next year, but we are hoping to really get across what we want to get across on it and make new fans off of it. I think we’ve got a lot of the ‘American Idol’ fans and a lot of people who are out on the road following me and stuff.
Every day I’m singing for somebody who might have not heard of me before or who may have not seen me play live before, so you’ve got to bring it every night and try to bring them over to your side. That’s kind of what I’m doing right now and what I’ll plan to keep on trying to do. We’ll see how that goes for me in the next year.

American Idol Scotty McCreery is coming to O.C.

June 28, 2012|By Heather Youmans, Special to the Daily Pilot

American Idol Scotty McCreery — the TV show's youngest male winner — has continued to gain momentum during his ongoing national tour, which will play the Orange County Fair's Pacific Amphitheatre in Costa Mesa on July 18.  According to McCreery, 18, the tour set list will feature a few Elvis Presley and George Strait covers, along with every song from his 2011 debut album "Clear As Day."  The album was certified platinum, selling more than one million copies three months after its release on Interscope Records.  "I was pumped [when the album went platinum]," McCreery said in a phone interview. "It's something that every artist strives for. You don't think it's going to happen when you put the album out. You just kind of hope people will go and listen to it. It was a huge milestone for us."  McCreery first won America over during the early rounds of "American Idol" with his laid back, down-to-Earth personality. The small town country crooner soon became known as the all-American kid with the deep voice.

Scotty McCreery videos

 Hello everyone - I just wanted to explain to everyone why the videos from the San Diego Fair were late in being posted.  My hours at work changed this week and I will now be working 1st shift Mon-Wed. I also had a major final exam on Thursday that I was studying for this week.  Some of you know that there have been some health issues with some family members, that I have had to assist in their care. I apologize that the videos were not posted the minute they were uploaded on YouTube or e-mailed to me, but there was no possible way for me to get them posted.  I appreciate everyone posting links to videos and sending them to me via e-mail.  I hope you understand that things may not get posted until later in the evening, but Gloria, Hailey, Tarah and myself are doing the best to get the site updated as soon as we can.   Thanks for visiting the site - Scotty does have the best fans!

Scotty McCreery Surprises fans at Tim Mcgraw's concert

Tim McGraw Duets ‘I Like It, I Love It’ With Scotty McCreery as Surprise in Charlotte
By: Amy Sciarretto

Tim McGraw had a special guest at the Charlotte, N.C. stop of his Brothers of the Sun Tour on Sunday, June 24. After performing alongside wife Faith Hill in Nashville on Saturday, he brought out local boy-done-good Scotty McCreery to sing the second verse of ‘I Like It, I Love It.’ To say that it was met with a resounding applause from the crowd would be putting it mildly.

The minute that McGraw introduced McCreery, with whom he sang ‘Live Like You Were Dying‘ in May of 2011 during the teen’s winning season of ‘American Idol,’ the crowd erupted in massive screams. McGraw and McCreery rocked the upbeat song and turned it over to the crowd for a moment to sing the super catchy chorus. Before the song ended, McGraw asked the crowd to “Give it up for my buddy Scotty” — and the fan s happily obliged.

Judging from the reaction, country music fans like it (and love it) when Scotty McCreery makes an impromptu appearance. Sure, he’s a local boy, so that ups the ante, but he’s pretty much a beloved country star at this point. Make that a beloved country star who will start college in the fall too!

Let’s hope McGraw and McCreery team up for a studio duet sometime down the road. Wouldn’t that be amazing?

Cowboys’ stadium: Country crowd rocks the Panthers’ den

When McGraw walked onto the stage at 6:30, following opening sets by Jake Owen and Grace Potter & The Nocturnals, the crowd let out a roar – yet seemed to be holding back. But 90 minutes and countless $10 cans of beer later, fans were ready to go. When North Carolina native and “American Idol” champ Scotty McCreery appeared from nowhere to help out McGraw with his 1995 hit “I Like It, I Love It,” it got so loud in there you’d have thought the Panthers had just clinched a Super Bowl berth.

 How often do 50,000 people come together at the same time in the same place in Charlotte to enjoy the same music? If history repeats itself, the answer is once every 15 years.

Scotty McCreery Brings Fans to His Hometown in ‘Water Tower Town’ Video

Jason Merritt, Getty Images

 By: Amy Sciarretto  |  Yesterday
Scotty McCreery‘s ‘Water Tower Town’ video is his visual celebration of the sights, scenes and sounds of his hometown of Garner, North Carolina. It’s a candid and true look at small town America, and we see the singer signing autographs, meeting fans and just having a good time with his fellow Garnerians. Despite his fame and fortune — which came with winning Season 10 of ‘American Idol’ — Scotty is still the same kid he was before he took the crown.
The vid is a montage of clips from the recent high school graduate’s “new” and “old” lives. Fans are shown holding signs and professing their love for him. He’s also meeting and greeting, shaking hands and being an approachable superstar. It’s essentially a love fest between McCreery and the place he calls home.
There’s footage of firefighters, friends and fans, and the ‘Water Tower Town’ video effectively doubles as a commercial for the inviting and beautiful town of Garner. It looks like the type of place you’d want to raise a family and enjoy your life.
The video is also like a yearbook of clips, in addition to being a warm and fuzzy ode to the place where Mr. ‘I Love You This Big’ hangs his hat and rests his head.
There’s no place like home! You can take the boy out of Garner, but he’ll always, always come back.

Tonight: Scotty to be featured on Noteworthy at the Opry

By Wendy Spicher 
Fan favorites Carrie Underwood, Brad Paisley, Rascal Flatts, Kellie Pickler and Scotty McCreery are appropriately featured on this week’s Noteworthy at the OprySaturday, June 23 at 9 p.m./ET on Great American Country (GAC) as the episode will focus on fan loyalty, heartfelt fan stories and some of the stars’ favorite gifts they’ve received from their most loyal supporters.
“There’s not this line between the country artist and the fan,” says Brad Paisley. “They really feel like we are one with them and we really feel like we are one with them.” Performances include Carrie Underwood, (“Undo It,” and “Jesus Take the Wheel,”) Brad Paisley, (“Water” and “Celebrity” with Scotty McCreery), Rascal Flatts (“Banjo,” and “Bless the Broken Road,”) and Kellie Pickler, (“Best Days Of Your Life”).
“It feels odd saying ‘fans,’” says Kellie Pickler. “I’d rather just call them ‘friends’ because that’s what you become…it’s almost like family.”

'Idol' McCreery, Lookouts fall short

By David Uchiyama
 Scotty McCreery popped the rosin bag off the back of his hand, stepped to the top of the mound at AT&T Field and wiped the rubber with his sneakers.
He looked like he had been on a mound before.
He faked shaking off the catcher twice and then rifled the ceremonial first pitch into the dirt before the Lookouts' 4-2 loss to Pensacola on Friday.
"Tonight, I was nervous as all get out," said McCreery, winner of the 2011 "American Idol" season. "Everybody I talked to said, 'Don't throw it in the dirt.' But I did."
McCreery pitched for the Garner Magnet High School (N.C.) team this past season after taking his junior year off to compete on "Idol." There's a YouTube video of a grounder bouncing up and glancing off his million-dollar throat.
"My dad pitched in college so he was like my pitching coach and he taught me all his stuff," said McCreery, whose debut album reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 list. "It worked out decent, I guess."
McCreery's playing days are over except for an occasional celebrity softball game or a chance to throw out a first pitch.
"I'll always be around baseball and I love doing things like this where I can entertain fans and enjoy the game," said McCreery, who has a love for all Boston area sports teams including the Red Sox. "Country music and baseball go hand-in-hand."
McCreery spent most of Friday playing golf at The Honors Course. He said he shot in the 90s.
"That's a beautiful course and I hit some good shots," McCreery said after leading a sellout crowd of 6,372 in "Take Me Out to the Ball Game." "The next time I go, I'm putting a fishing pole in the bag because they've got some big ones in there."

OFFSTAGE: A Few of Scotty McCreery's Favorite Things

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that's happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.) June 21, 2012; Written by Alison Bonaguro

Carly Rae Jepsen and Cookie Monster ice cream? Why, yes, those did make Scotty McCreery's list of his favorite things. Sunday night (June 17), I asked him a long list of random "what's your favorite" questions, and here's a sampling of what he came up with:

Favorite country song: Eric Church's "Springsteen." He told me, "I listen to that a ton." Rascal Flatts' "Changed" came in a close second.

Favorite pop song: Carly Rae Jepsen's "Call Me Maybe." He admitted, "That one's all the rage right now, and I catch myself singing it all the time."

Favorite artists to cover: Elvis Presley, Travis Tritt and George Strait. "All the guys who influenced me," he said.

Favorite junk foods: Cookie dough, cookie dough ice cream and, most importantly, something called Cookie Monster ice cream. "There's this place in my hometown called Pelican's, and it's mainly a snowball place, and I love getting snowballs, but they have this ice cream called Cookie Monster. It's blue vanilla ice cream with Oreos, snicker doodles, chocolate chip cookies and M&M cookies. And it's incredible," he raved.

Favorite not-so-junky foods: Broccoli, apples, bananas, strawberries. And ants on a log. "I was just introduced last week to this thing called ants on a log. It's a celery stick with peanut butter in there and raisins on top. It's very good," he said.

(Almost) favorite chore when he's back home: "I'm the trash guy," he said, saying he occasionally does slack off.

'American Idol's' Casey Abrams on hanging with Scotty McCreery and his best buddy

Really? What was the biggest advantage to not being the winner?

Well, less pressure. I think that’s huge for me because, to be honest, that’s something I have to work on. I don’t do really well under pressure. I need chill vibe and that’s what it was. We took our time and we found the right label and the right music. As soon as you win, I feel you have to come out with an album right away, but I think it was actually great that Scotty  won because he was ready to do it and he did it like a champ. He’s doing awesome.

And he seems, at 18, incredibly able to handle the pressure that comes with this. He’s very grounded.

You know what, he’s a really humble dude. He’s kind of shy at first. We kind of really didn’t talk to him. He was like, “I remember when no one would really talk to me in the top 10.” But during the tour, we got really close. We’d go see movies and stuff, go get burgers. It was good. He’s a chill dude.

After getting his high school sheepskin and a new CMT Music Award (or USA Breakthrough Video of the Year), Scotty McCreery is happy to be able to turn music into his sole and full-time pursuit. "Oh, of course -- this what I want to do for the rest of my life," the 2011 "American Idol" champ, who helped pitch his Clayton, N.C., baseball team into the playoffs this season, told "You've got to put in the work early to be able to do that for the next few years down the road. It's pretty intense. It's getting to be...I don't want to say a job, but it's getting to be like that. I'm taking it seriously. But I love it. I never wanted to sit behind a desk; that wasn't me. I love entertaining. If I wasn't on ('Idol') I would've tried to head to Nashville and make it the traditional way." McCreery has already made some waves in the country world. His debut album, "Clear As Day," is certified platinum and has spawned three Top 20 country hits -- including the current Top 5 smash "Water Tower Town." He's back out on the road now with Brad Paisley, but he's also ready to get to work on his second album. "We've gotten songs in... and starting to get in the mode of writing and stuff," McCreery says. "We've already got a few winners picked out I'm really excited about cutting. It's going to be fun. I like the process of making an album. The first one I did was a little rushed; I didn't get to enjoy it or get creative with it. This one we're going to take our time and really make a good album." McCreery predicts that he'll probably start recording during the summer, in-between concert dates, but he doesn't expect to release anything until 2013. "I'm definitely seeing for this second album that people are really excited when they're sending me songs," McCreery says. "I'm enjoying the songs I've been hearing. I just want people to really see me this time. I don't want to get caught up in the sappy love songs; those are important, but I want them to get a feel for who I am as an artist and sing about real things in life. Hopefully we'll get that with the songs and have some fun with it as well." While he was finishing up at high school McCreery was also paying attention to this year's "Idol" competition -- possibly, he says, a little too much. "It was like deja vu every week, like watching it from a totally new perspective," he says. "It was cool for me. I was pointing out things all the time, like seeing people behind the stage wearing all black who were my friends back in the day, or when the contestants were getting nervous. The people watching with me were trying to tell me to shut up, but I couldn't." And McCreery was happy to be part of "Idol's" 11th season, not only as reigning champ but as by recording a version of Tim McGraw's "Please Remember Me" that was used as the walk-off song for eliminated contestants. "It was cool getting to be a part of the show every week and still being connected to them and still get my name out there," he says. "It was cool for me; (the eliminated 'Idols') probably weren't happy to hear me singing, though. I did send (McGraw) a message when we were first cutting it, and he said 'Cool, man. Excited to hear it.' He was a great guy when I got to meet him for the finale last year."
