Scotty McCreery was invited by R&B superstar Charlie Wilson to join him on stage last Wednesday night (Feb. 18) during the soul singer’s show at PNC Arena in Raleigh, North Carolina. As the surprised crowd screamed with delight, McCreery sang a personalized chorus of Wilson’s hit “Charlie, Last Name Wilson”…although perhaps the song should be renamed “Scotty, Last Name McCreery” for that one performance.

McCreery has been a fan of Wilson’s since the young singer/songwriter was in 8th grade and heard the song “Charlie, Last Name Wilson” on the radio. The North Carolina-native took a group of family and friends to see the show and was surprised himself when Wilson sent word that he wanted McCreery to join him on stage. The two singers spent some time after the show getting to know each other.

“That was a night I’ll never forget,” said McCreery. “Charlie is an amazing performer and such a gentleman. I never expected to meet him, let alone be asked to join him on stage – that was a huge honor.”

The Mercury Nashville / 19 / Interscope Records recording artist is currently writing songs and preparing to work on his upcoming third album. McCreery scored two consecutive Top 10 hits (“See You Tonight” and “Feelin’ It”) from his sophomore album See You Tonight, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. That album’s title song, co-written by the singer, was one of three singles from the “American Idol” champion that were certified Platinum by the RIAA in the same week (the other two being “The Trouble with Girls” and “I Love You This Big” from his Platinum-certified first album Clear as Day, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart). The ACM, CMT Music, ACA, and ICM Award winner will be performing at the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida on Feb. 27 and the Sunrise Theater in Ft. Pierce, Florida on Feb. 28. He will join Rascal Flatts on the road this summer beginning in May. For more information and additional tour dates, visit www.scottymccreery.com.

The highlight of the evening involved 12 year-old Wish Kid Jessica as she invited fellow Wish Kid, Makaylan and her family onstage. The crowd erupted as six year-old Makaylan, who has been diagnosed with a Wilms tumor, learned her wish has been granted: she’ll soon take a trip to Disney World with her family.

After dinner, the attendees were treated to a live auction and additional musical performances. Jonathan Cain closed out the evening by presenting a check to Make-A-Wish® Middle Tennessee from the funds he was able to raise on tour with Journey in 2014.
