Scotty McCreery Kicks Off the Charlotte Auditions on ‘American Idol’


By Sterling Whitaker

Making his triumphant return to the show that made him famous, rising country star Scotty McCreery was on hand on Wednesday night (Jan. 23) to help ‘American Idol‘ kick off its twelfth season audition rounds in Charlotte, NC.

McCreery came out to Charlotte Motor Speedway, where ‘Idol’ was holding its huge open cattle call auditions. He addressed the throng of hopefuls with an endearingly self-deprecating joke. “Two years ago this year I was sitting in the stands like y’all, and Ryan Seacrest came out and said, ‘The next American Idol could be in this room,’” he recalled. “And I said, ‘Yeah — yeah, right.”

Of course, the next American Idol was sitting in that room — McCreery went on to win the entire thing, and has since launched a hugely successful country music career. His debut album ‘Clear as Day’ has sold more than a million copies on the strength of singles like ‘The Trouble With Girls,’ ‘I Love You This Big’ and ‘Water Tower Town.’ He recently released a Christmas album that’s also been certified gold.

  1. Scotty was precious as usual and we saw more of him that I expected. Never watched Idol before Scotty but I wanted to watch because of KU. He is, next to Scotty, number one in my books.He is an incredible talent and You can see how popular he is by the kids's love for him. Get the girls straightened out, They detract from the show with the bickering. The show should be about ti kids not those girls.

He is just so good at all of this attention than he use to be. Its all good Scotty because of you. He is just the best artist out there and I do wish him all the success this year .I do believe you will get that #1 single and hopefully more on your albumn.I was so glad we did get to see more of him than I thought he is just so popular and when the girl ask if he could marry her he always has an answer and he is just so sweet.

    2. When he told her he was a busy man, my 10/yo grandson said he sure is, he has places to go because he has to see all those grandmas! Do you think maybe he was teasing me? I think so!

  4. He is darling!!! What a breath of fresh air. I just saw a round of auditions he did in Hollywood, Your Man, and he was so cute. Jennifer got the goosies and the contestants in the audience hooted and hollered. He just shines so bright. He was sooooo handsome last night. I'm sure more Idol fans will be checking him out. He is such a great ambassador for the show. I miss him. He is such a cutie! ! I can't wait to see what he has planned for us this year. ILYTB Scotty
