Scotty McCreery Has Scripture on His Ball Caps

You'd think a young man's baseball caps might have autographs on the brim. But Scotty McCreery's have Bible verses on them.

In the new book Once-a-Day Country Faith: 56 Reflections From Today's Leading Country Music Stars, McCreery admits he has Philippians 4:13 written in the brims of his caps.

"I keep a lot of my old baseball hats, and if you look in the hats I've had since I started pitching, you'll see Philippians 4:13 written on the brim," McCreery says. "That's the Scripture that gets me through the day because sometimes you can't do it all by yourself. You can't do it on your own, so you lean on him."

Before McCreery won American Idol in 2011, he was a high school baseball star at Garner Magnet High School in North Carolina. And it sounds like that's when he started to keep that Bible verse -- "I can do all this through him who gives me strength" -- in his heart and on his ball caps.

But even after his small-town star status gave way to national fame and celebrity, he still relied on the Bible to remind him he was never alone.

"It was the best time of my life, but it was tough and definitely stressful," he says of the time he spent in Los Angeles for American Idol. "That was when I'd have to really dig into the Word and pray and ask for prayers from my friends back home. I leaned on that verse, and I got through it."

  2. I am so proud of you that you know how to lean on the Lord Jesus Christ. I pray for you constantly Scotty, because all the places you go and the people you meet you need all the prayer and strength you can get. Here's another one for you Psalm 1:1-3. God bless you Scotty. GRANDMA FROM TX.

  3. Yes I am proud too. I Love that verse it was my husbands favorite verse also. He used it a lot in his company just like Scotty to quote it to his customers was a understatement he was always telling people this verse gets me through the day he would say!!!. We had it in his funeral program also when he passed. This verse has gotten me through a lot also since he passed because without him I would be no where. So proud of you Scotty I think it shows who he is having that verse in his ball cap and I'm sure he uses it a lot in his business everyday. ILYTB Scotty

  4. Scotty is one wonderful young man. I truly love everything I know about him. It does not surprise me that he has this verse on his ball caps. He is humble. Lucky is the girl he settles on (hopefully in about 5 years). In the meantime, as America becomes more aware of his mesmerizing baritone voice, and his much needed ability to influence our young people, he may not become the most famous American Idol, but he surely will be the 'best'.

  5. He is truly amazing...in his young age that some would be indulging in drugs and bad habits, he prefers to be focused on his faith and follow the Word of God in his daily activities. Love this man...a true follower of Jesus.
