Scotty McCreery

Like many people, I was introduced to Scotty McCreery when he was on (and then won) season 10 of American Idol in 2011.  At the time 17-year-old Scotty McCreery was just starting out in what would turn out to be quite an exciting career in country music.  That was a great season of American Idol too! He went head-to-head against Lauren Alaina in the finale, and it's safe to say that both have made their mark on the country music world since being on the show.

Since then Scotty has gone on to sell more than three million albums, and scored five consecutive number-one singles starting with "Five More Minutes."

Scotty McCreery in Evansville

After a busy summer wrapping up a tour with Brooks & Dunn and playing at several state fairs and festivals, Scotty McCreery is heading to Evansville to play the Victory Theater.  The concert will take place this Friday, September 1st in Downtown Evansville.  Tickets are on sale now at the Ford Center Box Office or through Ticketmaster.

I had the opportunity to chat with Scotty McCreery on Monday morning, and it was really fun to talk to him about being a new dad.  Of course in typical dad fashion, when he called he was feeding baby Avery some breakfast, so it was fun to get a little peek into the McCreery household.  He also talked with me about his latest release 'Cab in a Solo' and how he went to the mountains with a group of friends to write music and this song came to be a part of that.  He also let me know if we'd be getting any new music sneak peeks at his show on Friday.
