Scotty talks about his performance on Freemont Street, saying the crowd was “as far as my eye could see.” Scotty’s also back in school and still a baseball pitcher.
Scotty won American Idol last year and has had a lot of firsts in his life. His first single, “I Love You This Big”, got the country music audience introduced to him as a country music artist.
His first ACM nomination as an artist happened at this years ACM’s.

Hmmm, bigger thrill – winning American Idol or talking with Jeff and Bill. Tough Call. Here’s the full interview from the MGM Grand!

The scene on Fremont Street in downtown Las Vegas is always a party. But the stops really got pulled out during the first of two free country music concerts Friday night. The drinks weren’t free, but the music was, and everyone there was having a blast.
Dubbed the Fremont Street Experience, the concerts are part of the lead-up to the Academy of Country Music Awards Sunday night (8pm ET/PT on CBS).
Two stages were set up right on Fremont Street right under the famous light-show canopy. Flanked on all sides by the flashing neon signs of famous downtown casinos like 4 Queens and Binion’s, artists Love and Theft, Hunter Hayes, Brantley Gilbert, Scotty McCreery, and Luke Bryan made some serious noise. And the crowd ate it right up.
Fellow ACM New Artist of the Year nominee Scotty McCreery played the First Street Stage, but you could hear the screams of his female fans blocks away. For having such a boyish appearance (he is still only 19 after all), the American Idol winner has an impressively deep and robust voice, and live on stage he can really belt it out. His set included some vintage country and rock classics, such high energy versions of the old-time gem “Man of Constant Sorrow” and Elvis Presley’s famous first single, “That’s All Right.”
These were mixed in with ballads like his 2011 single “The Trouble With Girls,” which had the ladies up in arms (literally, arms were waving from balconies and throughout the jam-packed streets).
