Scotty McCreery was the official opening act for The Beach Boys


"Scotty McCreery, the season 10 winner of "American Idol," was the official opening act for The Beach Boys, performing a 25-minute set that showcased his preternaturally deep baritone and his country band, recalling a young George Strait — though Strait likely didn’t charmingly gush about pretty Utah girls during his performances like McCreery did."

All-American music provided by The Beach Boys, McCreery, Osmond, Boyé and others seemed to be one of the best ways to honor the country, and its troops, on the Fourth of July.

I only posted the part about Scotty but you can click on the link below to read the complete article

  2. I hope Scotty has a long career in country music.

    Ok, I know this has nothing to do with this post and Scotty's come a long way since 2011 - but THIS is one of my favorite performances by him! And I think he really did charm/hook America with this too! I don't think anyone really ever heard of this song until he sang it on AI. I'm just in awe of the audience response (pretty much the same throughout that entire tour) considering he was only 16-17 years old!

    2. I loved Josh's version of "Your Man", but Scotty blew him away with his own!.. I think Scotty also jump-started Josh's lagging career, along with a bunch of other artists, old and new!...Most younger fans thought the name of the song was "Baby Lock Them Doors"!

      God gave Scotty a HUGE helping of the mysterious "IT" factor!!!..And aren't we all SOOOO happy He did!?

  4. I actually call it Baby Lock Them Doors! Hahahaha -- I think that Scotty singing straight-up country on AI10 brought back a lot of attention (and curiosity from newer fans) to classic country which has been kinda overshadowed by the pop culture over the years -- no doubt Scotty is very talented, has that golden country tone in his voice, and the IT factor -- he is also such a charming and likeable person, and humble enough to really make all those real country artists/legends who influenced him shine too -- It's so great that Tim McGraw and Brad Paisley have taken him under their wings, giving him advice and the chance to shine even more, etc., --
