Scotty McCreery Brings Holiday Cheer, Performs ‘Let It Snow’ on ‘GMA’

By Amy Sciarretto

Scotty McCreery brought a huge dose of country-style holiday cheer to breakfast TV on Tuesday morning (Dec. 11), performing his rendition of the classic ‘Let It Snow’ on ‘Good Morning America.’

Before the one-time ‘American Idol’ winner delivered a spot-on version of the song, the singer confirmed that he did indeed make his stage debut as the baby Jesus in a church play when he was just a newborn. See, Mom and Pop McCreery knew he was a star even back when he was an infant, and he has been preparing for superstardom his entire life.

McCreery also talked about juggling his class schedule as a college student and joked that if “I can do it, anybody can do it” when it comes to winning a reality show. He said that reality talent show contestants should be unique and be prepared, since it’s the ride of a lifetime.

The singer, dressed in his usual uniform of blue jeans and a leather jacket, then performed his McCreery-ed version of ‘Let It Snow’ amid white poinsettias, fans and his backing band. It was such a twangy version of a classic, that McCreery made it his own for the three minutes he performed.

The sleigh bells and the white set certainly made us feel warm and festive, though it’s a brisk December day in NYC.

Scotty McCreery was pretty low key when preparing for the event. "I bought all this myself and dressed myself tonight," he says, noting he didn't use a stylist's help in getting ready for the show. "I'm kind of casual tonight, nothing too crazy. It's just all me. I haven't really bought clothes in about a year or two. I don't like shopping."

Unlike many guys who planned to hit the casinos after the show, 19-year-old Scotty isn't gambling age. So what does he do in Vegas? "SportsCenter is always on TV," he says with a laugh. "I got to see Garth [Brooks] here earlier this year. That was pretty incredible to see him perform. He's one of my childhood heroes. Other than that, I'll walk the strip and go get McDonalds or something."
