Since winning the 10th season of the hit television series, American Idol, fans have fallen in love with the deep, melodic voice of country cutie, Scotty McCreery. Born and raised in North Carolina, his southern roots shined as he belted out songs from country legends, like Alan Jackson and Travis Tritt throughout the Idol competition. Scotty became the youngest male winner and the only country male artist to win the American Idol competition. Upon winning, Scotty released his coronation song “I Love You This Big”, which became a Top 15 hit and earned him the honor of having the highest chart debut for a new artist since 1984.
In October of 2011, McCreery’s first country album, Clear As Day, debuted and went platinum. The album is an impressive collection of songs that vividly paint a picture of who Scotty is as a person and an artist. “On this album, I wanted them to make sure they really got who I am, how I grew up in Garner, N.C., and what I’m all about,” he says. “It was also really important to me to keep some of the traditional elements of country music in it, to remember where country came from, and I think we did that.” With themes such as girls, family, and the Bible, the album is a cool blend country and contemporary music. McCreery’s second single off the album, “The Trouble With Girls”, achieved rapid success, with lyrics describing the power women have over men. Check Kicktickets.com for price
