Scotty McCreery performed “Take Me Out to the Ball Game” during the Seventh Inning Stretch of the New York Mets vs. St. Louis Cardinals game at New York City’s Citi Field on May 19th.

This is sure to be one of the sports topics that the ACM and CMT Music Award winner will discuss when he appears live today (May 20) on “SI Now,” the daily online Sports Illustrated news show broadcast at between 1:00-1:30 PM/ET.

The singer/songwriter, who has been in the studio recently working on new music, will also appear on the “Road Trip with Anna Kooiman” segment of “FOX and Friends” which will air on May 28 at 7:40 AM/ET on the FOX News Channel. Kooiman visited McCreery and his band during their soundcheck and performance in Fargo, North Dakota earlier this year to learn how to be his guitar tech. Viewers can see how well she handled the job when the segment airs next week.

McCreery will be the special guest on the upcoming Rascal Flatts RIOT Tour 2015 this summer, beginning May 30 in Noblesville, IN at the Klipsch Music Center. The tour will also feature opening act RaeLynn.

Fox announced this week it is pulling the plug on American Idol after the 15th season, giving the show one more year to bid farewell to the fans. Producers say the final season will pay tribute to seasons passed.

Scotty McCreery says “American Idol” was “a dominant force in our pop culture for almost a decade and a half, but all good things must come to an end.” The next season of “American Idol” will be its last.

Kellie Pickler says “Idol” helped her realize her dreams as a country singer and she’s sure the final season will be a memorable one.

Original co-host Brian Dunkleman had the best reaction ever when he tweeted, “I knew American Idol would never last without me CANCELLED.”
