Scotty McCreery Fan Club Donates $1,200 to Opry Trust Fund

scotty mccreery fanclub party

On Friday night June 10th, Scotty McCreery returned to the Grand Ole Opry to perform during the 2016 CMA Music Festival, where he received a standing ovation from the sold-out crowd after performing a new and not yet released song, “Five More Minutes.” Backstage after his show, he spent time with two of his musical heroes, Country Music Hall of Fame members Charley Pride and Bill Anderson.

“My favorite place to perform is at the Grand Ole Opry,” said McCreery. “Being on the stage where legends have stood is an awesome feeling. Being able to hang out with legends like Charley Pride and Bill Anderson backstage is beyond imaginable to me. A little earlier in the evening I was talking with Jeannie Seely and Larry Gatlin. It’s such a privilege to get to know these amazing and talented entertainers who paved the way for all of us. This could only happen at the Opry. What a great night!”

Earlier in the day, McCreery held his Fifth Annual Fan Club Party in the Opry’s Studio A. During the photo line where he meets with each attendee, a group of his fan club members surprised him with a donation of $1,200 to the Opry Trust Fund in his honor. The Opry Trust Fund’s mission is to help those in the country music industry when they need it most by offering financial assistance during their time of need.

“I have the greatest fans in the world, and I love getting to spend time with them at my fan club party,” said the ACM and CMT Award winner. “Having them make a donation in my name to the Opry Trust Fund shows how generous and thoughtful my fans are. I’m so pleased they chose such a great cause to support as the Opry Trust Fund.”

McCreery returns to the road on June 18th in Saginaw, Michigan when he performs on the 2016 KCQ Country Music Fest.

Mark Wills Announces “Friends Club Party”

mark wills

For the last two decades,  Mark Wills has been committed to bringing his fans great music with a longevity spanning multiple generations in stand-out hits like “19 Somethin’,” “Don’t Laugh At Me,” “Jacob’s Ladder,” “Back At One,” and “I Do (Cherish You),” among others. This Friday, he will apply the same attitude to what he calls his “Friends Club Party” in Nashville.

“The people who have been supportive of me throughout my career are not my fans, they’re my friends. They make this life-long dream of mine possible,” said Wills. “Having gotten an early start in my career, I have been blessed with over 20 years of longevity, and I look forward to many more thanks to those friends of mine.”

The Mark Wills Friends Club Party will take place Friday, June 10th, kicking off at 8:00 a.m. and lasting through 12:00 p.m. ET. Tickets to the exclusive event are still available at With countless fan club parties still being announced and popping up all over Music City during CMA Music Festival, Wills’ is sure to stand out as the ticket price also includes admission to the George Jones Museum (located at 128 Second Avenue North), where it will be held.

In the heart of downtown Nashville, the George Jones Museum opened last year and Wills says it is “one of the greatest tributes to an artist I have ever seen.”

The four-hour Mark Wills “Friends Club Party” will include breakfast, an exclusive up-close-and-personal live performance by Mark and his band, and a personal meet and greet, among other surprises!
