Scotty McCreery returns to Myrtle Beach area for concert

Scotty McCreery, an "American Idol" winner from Garner, N.C., outside Raleigh, will play March 29 at House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach, riding his return to country's Top 10 singles with "See You Tonight." 



Sophomore status has made the grade in more ways than one for Scotty McCreery.

In his second year of studies at N.C. University in Raleigh, near his hometown in suburban Garner, the 20-year-old baritone has his seen “See You Tonight,” his second original studio album, debut atop the country charts this past autumn.

Returning at 8:30 p.m. Saturday to play House of Blues in North Myrtle Beach, the winner in 2011 of Fox-TV’s 10th season of “American Idol” had spoken last spring about the challenge of getting back on the radio after his first CD, “Clear As Day” generated two hits: “I Love You This Big” and “The Trouble with Girls.”

Patience paid off as the single “See You Tonight,” released last spring on the Mercury Nashville/19/ Interscope label, cracked the Top 10 to close this winter, capping a long climb, bringing what he called “an incredible feeling.”

“That’s fine with me,” McCreery said two weeks ago by phone. “As long as we get there. We’ve been working this thing and believing in it from the very beginning.”

He sees “a couple of songs” as contenders for his next single, for which “we’ll find out here soon.” He said in the process of choosing what to release, “I definitely throw my two cents in as much as I can” for record label officials decide, and that “at the end of the day … it’s always been kind of a unanimous decision.”
