Scotty McCreery proves he’s country strong at the Oakdale

The Raleigh, N.C., native is known for his vocals. It’s impressive to hear McCreery sing – not just because it’s surprising that he’s able to sing with a deep register, but he’s able to do so with control. At various points in his performance, the country music singer easily hit high notes and even held them for a few seconds. Despite his lower register, McCreery’s performance Thursday showcased his vocal range.

McCreery proved that he was truly a country singer Thursday night.

And McCreery proved he was also a giving man last night. Thursday’s performance at the Oakdale served as a benefit concert for the 12.14 Foundation, with McCreery donating all proceeds to the organization. During the middle of his performance, he asked people in the crowd to send a text message to a phone number to make a $10 donation to the 12.14 Foundation.
From just Thursday’s ticket sales, McCreery said, “we’ve raised $60,000.”
The foundation has a mission to “build and operate a landmark performing arts center in Newtown,” according to the organization’s website.

“This facility will serve the dual purpose of memorializing and honoring those lost on (Dec. 14, 2012), and providing a venue that supports many forms of healing and positive change,” the website states.
