Scotty McCreery Loses Bet on the New England Patriots & Takes a Cold Dip

Scotty McCreery is a die-hard New England Patriots fan. In fact he sang the National Anthem at Gillette Stadium on Jan. 16 when the Patriots beat the Kansas City Chiefs in their initial AFC Divisional Playoff Game. Over this past weekend, McCreery invited several of his friends to watch yesterday’s television broadcast of the Patriots vs. Denver Broncos AFC Championship Game at his North Carolina beach house. In advance of the game, McCreery made a bet with his buddy Evan McNeill. If the Patriots won, then McNeill would do a polar plunge into the Atlantic Ocean — but if the Broncos won, then McCreery would be the one to be fully submerged in the icy cold water.

The game was played on Sunday afternoon, Jan. 24 and to McCreery’s disappointment, the Denver Broncos beat the New England Patriots 20-18, with the Broncos advancing to the upcoming Super Bowl to play against the Carolina Panthers.

A man of his word, McCreery took the polar plunge. His buddy Austin Nagy posted video of McCreery’s run into the Atlantic Ocean.

It was already dark on the East Coast so the video doesn’t show McCreery making it to the ocean – just the shouts of his friends cheering him on. But McNeill returned to Twitter with video showing a wet McCreery on the beach immediately following his ocean dip.

Good sport McCreery will be on the road this Thursday, Jan. 28th, at the State Theater in Kalamazoo, Michigan and Friday, Jan. 29th, at the Casino Rama in Rama, Ontario.

Scotty McCreery will perform the National Anthem at the American Football Conference (AFC) Divisional Playoff Game held at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass. on Saturday, January 16th. The game, which will air live on CBS at 4:35 PM ET (3:35 PM CT), will pit the home team and reigning Super Bowl champions, the New England Patriots, against the Kansas City Chiefs.

McCreery is a die-hard Patriots fan who performed for the team members and their guests at their “Welcome to Arizona Party” last year prior to the team winning the 2015 Super Bowl.

“My Dad, who was raised in New England, instilled a love of the New England Patriots in me from birth,” said McCreery. “I was at the Super Bowl last year when they won – maybe that makes me their good luck charm. I cannot wait to sing in Gillette Stadium and then cheer the Patriots on to another victory!”

After having to miss the BMI Country Music Awards in November due to a prior commitment performing at the CMA Marketing Summit, Scotty McCreery excitedly accepted his first BMI Award in person last Friday afternoon, Dec. 11, for writing one of BMI’s Top 50 Country Songs of 2015: his Platinum-selling Top Ten hit “See You Tonight.” BMI announced its list of Top 50 songs in November at its annual event, but with McCreery unavailable, he didn’t want to just “mail it in.” McCreery wrote the song with Ashley Gorley and Zach Crowell, and it served as the title cut of his second studio album and earned him a Top 10 hit on both Billboard and MediaBase. The multi-Platinum-selling singer/songwriter received his award in person in Nashville from Jody Williams, BMI Vice President, Writer and Publisher Relations and Bradley Collins, BMI Executive Director, Writer-Relations.

“This is my first-ever award for songwriting, and to be acknowledged for that is a huge honor for me,” said an excited McCreery. “I was so disappointed that I couldn’t be there to accept it in person during the BMI Awards in November. BMI graciously offered to send the award to my home, but it was important to me that I come back to Nashville as soon as I had a break in my tour schedule and thank Jody and Bradley in person for their continued support and encouragement of me and my songwriting. I’ve been writing songs since I was a boy playing my guitar in my bedroom. I enjoy the entire process and have spent a lot of time in Nashville over the last few years honing my craft and learning from some amazing talents. Receiving this recognition is a wonderful way to end my year.”

“We are so proud to have Scotty McCreery as a BMI songwriter and are very pleased to present him with his first, of many I am sure, BMI Country Award for ‘See You Tonight’,” said Williams.  “I cannot wait to see what Scotty does next.”

NASH Country Weekly Magazine’s “Country Music’s Sexiest Man 2015” has been busy throughout this year touring during the summer and fall as the special guest on the Rascal Flatts RIOT 2015 Tour as well as performing at theaters on his own. In-between concerts he has been writing songs and recording his next album, which is expected to be in stores in 2016 with “Southern Belle” serving as the first single from the forthcoming release.  The ACM and CMT Award winner has also been busy writing his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream, which will be in-stores on May 3, 2016 and is available now for pre-sale orders at, Barnes & Noble, and wherever books are sold.

McCreery burst onto the national music scene in 2011 at age 17, quickly establishing himself as one of country music’s hottest new stars. Now just five years later, the talented singer/songwriter has sold more than 2.5 million albums and received both Platinum and Gold album certifications, debuted three consecutive albums at No. 1 on a Billboard chart, achieved one Gold and three Platinum-certified singles and two Top Ten hits, amassed more than three million followers on Facebook and Twitter, and received more than 150 million YouTube views.
