ALABASTER – Clear weather, musical performances from several local and nationally-renowned bands and plenty of kid-centered events drew one of the largest crowds in Alabaster CityFest history on June 6, according to event organizers.

The crowds began rolling in shortly after the event began at 9 a.m., and kept coming throughout the day, said Alabaster Arts Council President Adam Moseley. The Arts Council organizes CityFest, which is the largest festival in Shelby County, each year. “We had a great crowd all day,”

Moseley said on June 7. “It was one of the largest crowds we have ever had.” Moseley attributed much of the evening crowd numbers to the event’s headliner, 2011 American Idol winner Scotty McCreery. He is well-known for songs such as “The Trouble with Girls,” “See you Tonight” and “I Love you this Big,” and wowed spectators during the show by performing many of his hit songs.

Rock band Civil Twilight took the stage at 7 p.m. to open for McCreery, and performed many of its hit songs featured on shows such as “One Tree Hill,” “The Mentalist,” “Arrow” and “Pretty Little Liars.” “I think Scotty McCreery put on an incredible show and this year will be hard to top. But, we will start next week to do just that,” Moseley said.

  1. what a nice article . As , it stated It was one of the largest crowds they ever had. and attributed to Scotty McCreery. the event's headliner. I saw a short video of the crowd that his Dad, Mike sent and it looked like a huge crowd and His Dad also stated. I read that there were 45,000 that attended. My Cousin lives there and were also at the Concert and said the crowd was huge and that they were sure that Scotty and his band were thrilled to have so many show up for him.

  2. I feel like Scotty is gaining some good momentum in his career now. If radio only knew how many fans he has and is gaining with every show, he would get more airplay. The RIOT TOUR is really going to get him some great exposure and gain him many new fans. I am so excited to follow along on this journey with the McCreerians and see Scotty's career and popularity build and build over the next couple of years!!
