Scotty McCreery to perform at Craven Country Jamboree

Just want to take a minute to address all the comments about Scotty not opening for Kenny at this event. As you can see in the large, bolded text below it says opening for Chesney - I copied and pasted that directly from the metro news link that is posted right below that is why I titled it as he was an opener.  But thank you all so much for bringing this to my attention that the actual website doesn't have it listed as that - this let's me know that you really are taking the time to read the articles we post hear! :) -- Donna



Craven Country Jamboree announced complete final line-up this week, adding country duo Lady Antebellum, superstar Tim McGraw, music legend Randy Travis and American Idol winner Scotty McCreery to their roster, which already included Kenny Chesney.

Opening for Chesney is 2011 American Idol winner Scotty McCreery.  Craven is held in Qu’Appelle Valley from July 11 to 14, 2013. Tickets are $159 for the weekend. 
More information.

 I only posted the parts about Scotty you can read the full article by clicking the link below.

 Just a little bit of information about the fesitval
The "World's Greatest Country Music Festival" is the longest running multi-day music festival in Canada. It has been on the same site for nearly 30 years - in the middle of the beautiful Qu'Appelle Valley. Our endless blue skies and rolling green hills are a treat for the eyes, but that's just the beginning of this extraordinary experience.

For four days in July, 23,500 fans a day visit from every corner of the globe. But we never lose our prairie charm. The people are friendly, the atmosphere is fun, and the musical talent is next to none.
The main attraction is the stellar talent gracing the main stage every day. The Craven Country Jamboree attracts the hottest stars, and the best new talent country music has to offer.

  1. Great gig and we all know that Scotty will impress as he always does. And hopefully we soon see the "American Idol winner Scotty McCreery" replaced with "Country superstar Scotty McCreery". It´s getting a little old with the Idol label

  2. Scotty will have his sophomore Album out by then. canada fans will be thrilled .I don't think he has been there since the idol tour.

  3. Scotty's playin' with the Big Boys now! Way to go Scotty!!! You made us all so proud ! Can we officially call our boy an International Country Superstar now???

  4. Scotty, somebody out there knows how you can fill up a pretty big venue at your young and tender age of 19!! Woohoo!! Yeehah!!! High five!!!! I knew this is what would be happening in 2013!! Can you tell I am a little excited?! This is so AWESOME, not only for Scotty but also for some faithful McCreerians in Canada!

    P.S. I agree about dropping the American Idol thing, but I think it will gradually fall away as his country music career is well established and stands on its own and he is known widely by people who don't do the American Idol thing. It'll happen for him just like it did for Carrie Underwood. I am sure of that.

    1. Contractually he is still tied to American Idol, just don't know how many albums before he is "on his own"

      Delete
    2. I don't think he's still tied to American Idol. What makes you think that. Doesn't make sense. That was up when the new Idol was crowned.

      Delete
    3. No, he is not tied to Ai by contract thank goodness. Maybe 9:45 meant tied to Idol in people´s mind.

      Delete
    4. It is my understanding that the million dollar record deal for the Idol winner is spread over multiple albums. So much $$$ for the first album (depending on sales) so much for the second and so forth. Maybe the Christmas album is speeding the process along?

      Delete
    5. Contractual is not in people's minds, though, but, I know what you're saying. Comments like that are misleading.

      Delete
    6. Million $$$ record deal?

  5. Hopefully by then his new album will be platinum and AI will not be part of his name anymore. Just him.

    1. I´d think it will. Probably not in the same speed as after his AI win but it´ll get there no doubt

    2. American Idol does not HAVE to be tied to his name. He has said he doesn't mind them referring to him with AI being attached to his name seeing they gave him his start.

  8. Great news. I am sure Kenny met Scotty when he sang with Tim when they were in Raleigh. Tim no doubt had pleny good things to say about Scotty. 2913 will be great for Scotty. Thanks Todd Casetty.

  9. I agree. Off topic but I listened to a snippet of Durba's SCIBIT and also a little of Brian Selzer. Scotty sound the best.

    ReplyDelete
  10. Oh Wow, our Scotty rolling with the big ones now that is amazing Scotty. Your moving on up and yeah I agree, yea American Idol and all of us fans got him where he is now but he has did a lot on his own and "the American Idol" name I think will gradually go away but it would be nice that they just say Scotty McCreery but all these artist like Scotty and just like Brad Paisley he gave him a one in a million chance this summer and Scotty is so grateful for that and Kenny and the others are right up there with Brad. They know his good artist and he does bring in the crowds. YAY YAY I feel like doing yells like I did in high school and ooh, thats been a while back, HA!!! Well we are so proud for you Scotty and the whole family ,I know is excited. YOU ROCK SCOTTY McCreery. ILYTB

    Awesome ,good for you Scotty.....You rock

    ReplyDelete
  12. Great news for Scotty!!!! I would love to go to Canada!! I will have to see where it is to see if we can go to this one. I can't wait to see Scotty this Friday in MA and later this month at The Beacon. We can't get enough of Scotty!

    ReplyDelete
  13. Wow! this concert is getting pretty close to home, one province over, will have to see about taking a little trip to see Scotty live. YaHoo!

    On another note, what I commented a week or so ago that James Durbin had tweeted he was doing SCIBIT but noone was convinced at the time that it was true. Well it is, I just listened to him sing a preview of it on MJS. Scotty's version of Elvis's song "Santa Claus Is Back In Town" was done first on his album Christmas With Scotty McCreery and its awesome. Don't know where James got the idea from, BIG COINCIDENCE I guess. Scotty's version is by far the BEST! Last song on his album and its awesome and the band is fantastic!!!!

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. James might have chosen the one because he does rock and there aren ´t that many great rocking Christmas songs to choose from. Scotty´s version is different from James´ and people can choose the one fitting to their taste or both if they like both of them. Fine by me

      Delete
    2. Absolutely. I have no problem with James doing SCIBIT, because his style is different anyway. People who don't really listen to country music but like rock music will go for it. I read that he decided to do it because he went to Graceland in Memphis recently and got the idea then. Nothing to do with competing with Scotty.

      Delete
  14. I know Scotty & his band will have an awesome time. I hope all the family gets to go too. The McCreerians must be so excited that Scotty will be performing in their homeland. He is the best of the best. Love that young man to pieces!

  15. I read the above wonderful article between the lines, and I think Scotty will be the opening act for Kenny on his spring NO SHOES TOUR. The reason I think this is because they said it in the Article, and Scotty hasn't opened for anyboy except Brad.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Scotty is not opening for Kenny on his spring NO SHOES TOUR, It's Eric Church, EJB,Zac Brown band and Kacey Musgraves.I read this in an article in TOC!

      Delete
    2. Also Scotty is under 21 and Kenny won't take anyone under 21 on full tour with him.

      Delete
    3. It's just as well Kenny won't take anyone under 21 on tour with him. I have a feeling that Scotty will tour with artists that have similar values. That meaning artists that don't spend their off time socializing with drinking, etc. jmo

      Delete
  16. Judy said on twitter that news about his 2013 schedule should come out in December. It would be great if it were Kenny, he sells out arenas that seat 50,000 people or more. We want as many people to see Scotty as possible...they'll love him.

    1. That tour announcement is only around 3 weeks away!! Whew!! I am not feeling in my gut that it is going to be with Kenny Chesney, but I am confident it will be with someone or some group that will expose him to tons more future fans and country music lovers. I am so excited to know who it is going to be!!! Personally, I would rather see Scotty go out on tour with someone who does not have four other acts and (please forgive) not Eric Church. Not a good fit -- just my opinion. I think Scotty's visibility would be so much better if he was the only opener for someone (like Hunter Hayes for Carrie) or the second opener (like The Band Perry was for Brad), and then he could his new video screen that he recently added to his show.

      Delete
    2. From what I understand, Scotty will be the 2nd act next tour, but maybe I am misinformed.

      Delete
    3. Yes, 2nd act as in the way The Band Perry was for The Virtual Reality Tour with Brad Paisley. That's my understanding.

      Delete
  17. Would be nice if he toured with Scotty. He has announced so far that he Eric Church, Zac Brown Band, Eli Young Band and K. Musgrave, forgot her first name. But he could surely add Scotty.

    ReplyDelete


  18. I believe Scotty will have a great New Year,he off to a good start.The strawberry festival headliner ,also Blake Shelton will be there,now this one with Kenny. I ;m sure they have al ot lined up for him.He's been doing so many of his own solo concerts,I think were going to see a lot of that.and him taking others as his headliner. Which would be good for him ,I think after having so many shows of his own already it would be hard to be a opening act for someone all the time.With his new album coming out he'll have plenty to sing about.I 've seen him in concert with Brad.and sold out concert by himself,and he's good as they can get.You would never guess he's new in the music field.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Scotty has done really good on his own and can continue to do so. It´s just that the audience to his own shows are fans already while he also needs to gain new ones. Esp. as long as radio doesn´t support him with much airplay he would benefit from touring with one of the big established artists to meet new crowds and gain fans. I wouldn´t be surprised he´s already teamed up with sb

  24. I don't think Scotty is opening for Kenny Chesney at this event. He is taking the stage before Kenny Chesney, and they are both being announced as headliners on this web site. This was the lineup for 2012 in order for you to get an idea of how they are scheduled. I don't think anyone is opening for anyone here. If Kenny Chesney is on at 8:30 p.m., then that means Scotty will perform at 7:00 p.m. more than likely. He IS the former American Idol for 2011, but he has established himself as a solo artist having sold out shows all over the country. http://www.cravencountryjamboree.com/?s=5.performance_archive,2012

  28. Exciting that is how I took it too, that he would be playing one night and the others would be playing too. I hope that he is, he has been playing solo all summer long and he is ready. I just want to hear him sing. I already miss watching the concerts on here since the tour is over. Todd, Thank you for what you have done so far.

  38. Just watched the rerun of last year's CMA Country Christmas. I had forgotten that LBT sang SCIBIT. While Jimi Westbrook has a great voice,(I love LBT),he didn't have the Elvis touch. Neither did Brian Selzer. And James was real 'rock'. Each did well, but Scotty was the best, loved his Elvis touch.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Spent the evening listening to Scotty from his audition until now. It reminded me of something Jimmie Iovine said...Scotty is a stylized singer. Being stylized means you conform to one style. I don't know if even Jimmie knew how talented this young man is and how diverse he is. Although he did say that what we heard there was good but anything after Idol was going to be even better. Sure was right about that. Seeimg those earlier videos I thought he was a real cutie pie, but omg how he has matured vocally and physically. The pics from the upcoming Christmas show are some drop dead gorgeous pics...those killer baby blue eyes. WOW!

  40. Hey speaking of his audition until now do you all know if they sell the video of Season 10 American Idol of the whole Season I have tried to find it on here to see but I can't seem to find anyone who knows. Hey i just watched the introducing Scotty McCreery tonight that I had taped on Gac. Oh Yes, those pics are absolutely amazing and those eyes your right, WOW.

  41. I can't get these videos to come up on you tube hope someone puts them on site so We can just watch them like some of them usually do. THANKS :):) Hey, I did go to Beasley Colesium and does show a radio broadcast and they didn't introduce him as American Idol Scotty McCreery they just say artist Scotty McCreery and playing his songs and Jana's just introducing them for coming to the colesium that night its really good go watch it, its a video.
