Scotty McCreery returned to his roots earlier this week when he taped an episode of the Farewell Season of “American Idol.”
For three days, the Season Ten champion mentored two of the Top 24 contestants (their names cannot be
revealed at this time) and shared lessons learned from both his experience on the iconic television show and in
his ACM and CMT Award winning career.

Much to the excitement of the studio audience, the entertainer also performed duets with both singers. “American Idol,” featuring McCreery, along with five other returning Idols, will air next Thursday, February 11 at 8:00 PM ET (7:00 PM CT) on the FOX Television Network.

“I remember how important it was to me during my time on ‘Idol’ to meet and learn from all the great artists who visited the set and offered their advice,” said McCreery. “I was proud to be able to come back and offer whatever guidance I could to my two talented contestants. This is their season and their show. I was there to help them shine…and I believe they both did!”

McCreery is on the road next week performing concerts on Feb. 12 at the Canton Palace Theater in Canton, Ohio; Feb. 13 at the Secrest in Zanesville, Ohio; and Feb. 14 at the River City Casino in St. Louis, Missouri.

He will release his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream , on May 3. The book is available now for presale at Amazon , Barnes and Noble , and

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!”
