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?

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.
