Scotty McCreery Sings for President, Starts Christmas Vacation

Schools out for . . . well . . . Christmas break anyway! Scotty McCreery has signed off on his last final of his first semester at North Carolina State University and now he's headed home to Garner, N.C. And he's looking forward to it.
"That'll be cool to get home," he tells Country Weekly. "I've been touring throughout the year, and to have those days to be home and focus on family and friends, and reflect on the last year, it'll be fun. Mom will be baking. We're heading to Grandma's, too. I'm sure we'll have all kinds of good cooking that day."
Scotty shouldn't have a problem finding his way home either. It sounds like the McCreery house will be visible from quite some distance. "I'm not a Griswold when it comes to putting lights up or anything, but my mom and dad, they enjoy putting up lights," he says with a laugh, referencing the contemporary holiday classic National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. "We may have tamed it down this year, but last Christmas we had 15 to 18 trees around the house. They weren't all big ones. We had our main one and then we had ones in the windows and down the front steps and side steps. It got a little crazy last year."
Tonight (Dec. 21), Scotty makes an appearance on TNT's Christmas in Washington, the annual holiday concert held in the nation's capital. Joining Scotty in singing for President Obama will be Diana Ross, Demi Lovato and Korean pop star Psy.
"That was a highlight of my career so far," Scotty says of performing for the commander in chief at the taping of the special. "To look out there and see the president is a little different than seeing a normal fan out there. It was a little more nerve-racking, but a good time."
And Scotty even got to meet "Gangnam Style" phenom Psy. "He was interesting," Scotty deadpans. " I don’t know if he’s a country fan, though—you can’t dance like that in country music."

    Diana Ross still sounds amazing .Chris Mann also .they all did a great job and I loved the choir . Now this was a wonderful show at least they appreciate a incredible singer like Scotty.

  5. Wow! That made CMA look amateurish. Scotty was fantastic. Loved his look, his voice, and his songs. Loved seeing part of his band perform with him. I wonder if they knew what great experiences they would have after signing on with Scotty. Made my day. Nana in Texas

  6. I saw it from 8-9 then they replayed it from 11-12. Great show
    Megan Hilty, Chris Mann, Diana Ross, and Scotty were all outstanding. Of course I couldn't take my ears and eyes off Scotty. His eyes were definitely twinkling even more tonight.

  7. Was a bit disappointed he had to cut the middle out of Mary Did You Know....but I understand ......... they all cut there songs for the final round. I think his performance was outstanding, and the President seemed to enjoy his 'Elvis' tune. Am about to see it the second time, here in Phoenix.
