Following in the footsteps of Gary Allan, Keith Urban, Chris Young and other top singer/songwriters, Scotty McCreery was voted “Country Music’s Hottest Bachelor of 2016” by the readers of NASH Country Weekly Magazine, as revealed in their April 25, 2016 issue, on-stands now. This announcement follows on the heels of the 22-year old North Carolina native being named the magazine’s “Sexiest Man in Country Music” last November. With the recent announcement that NASH Country Weekly will be relaunching as the digital-only NASH Country Daily in the coming months, this makes McCreery the print magazine’s final “Hottest Bachelor.”
“Have mercy!” said a stunned McCreery. “I can’t decide if I’m still sunburned from being out on the beach earlier this week or if I’m blushing. While I don’t know that I agree with the title, it is nice to be thought of in this way. I sure appreciate the support of my fans and NASH Country Weekly.”
The 2016 list of NASH Country Weekly’s “10 Hottest Bachelors” are: 1) Scotty McCreery, 2) Chris Young, 3) Gary Allan, 4) Dwight Yoakam, 5) Blake Shelton, 6) Kip Moore, 7) Sam Hunt, 8) Kenny Chesney, 9) Chuck Wicks, and 10) Brett Eldredge.
McCreery, who stole the show at last week’s “American Idol” series finale with his stunning rendition of his hero Garth Brooks’ hit song “Papa Loved Mama,” is gearing up for the May 3 release of his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream and the accompanying 14-city book tour. Cities, bookstores and dates for the book signings can be found at ScottyMcCreery.com. The book is also available for pre-order at Amazon.com, BarnesAndNoble.com, BooksAMillion.com, ChristianBook.com, Lifeway.com, Walmart.com and other online retailers.
