Scotty McCreery: ALL AGES SHOW!


Scotty McCreery

McCreery's first studio album, Clear As Day, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country Albums charts, making him the youngest man in history to open at the top of the all-genre chart with  a debut release.  It also garnered the highest sales of any country solo album released last year, held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for six weeks and earned Platinum status in just thirteen weeks.
Scotty won New Artist of the Year at both the 2011 American Country Awards and the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards. He also won the USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year for "The Trouble With Girls" at the 2012 CMT Music Awards.  McCreery was ranked No. 1 on Billboard's list of Top New Country Artists for 2011 also earned the No. 4 spot on Billboard's 2012 List of the Top 21 Under 21. Scotty spent most of 2012 opening for Brad Paisley's Virtual Reality Tour 2012.

McCreery recently released Christmas With Scotty McCreery, which debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top Seasonal Albums chart and became one of the season’s top holiday albums.  Scotty has continued to perform and record while pursuing an undergraduate degree at N.C. State University.

You’d never know it from his unfailingly polite, unflappable demeanor, but the rise of young Scotty McCreery has been blindingly rapid. Following a youth spent singing in church in the Raleigh satellite community of Garner, N.C., he led a praise-and-worship group called Audience of One. More significantly, he sang with an advanced high-school chorale group called Die Meistersingers. It required him to sight-read music, perform classical pieces and compete with similar groups on a national level.

“Both of these groups helped me to really learn to be a professional about music,” says McCreery. “I think the classical training that I got has helped me in the country world, as far as my voice technique, all around.”

“My stage debut was as Baby Jesus when I was first born, in the church musical,” reports the million-selling sensation. “Then, in the fifth grade, I was Joseph and sang ‘O Holy Night.’ That was my first solo. I did the Children’s Choir, went to Youth Choir and participated in all that for the church. We sang ‘Mary Did You Know’ for Christmas Eve services.”
