A Bit About McCreery
In May 2012 17-year-old Scotty McCreery claimed victory Season Ten of American Idol. The win made the McCreery the youngest male winner in the show’s nine-year history. A record-breaking 122.4 million votes were cast for Scotty and runner-up Lauren Alaina.
In a whirlwind, just a week later, McCreery’s debut single, “I Love You This Big,” earned the highest debut for a new artist’s first single on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart since at least 1984. The song, which hit the Top 20 in seven weeks, is one of the fastest-rising debut singles for a new country artist in history.
Currently, McCreery is traveling the nation with his “Weekend Roadtrip” tour. Later this month McCreery along with fellow Rock the South performers The Band Perry will be announcing the American Country Music awards nominees on February 13.
