Scotty McCreery recently picked up three RIAA Platinum certifications with hit songs – “I Love You This Big” and “The Trouble With Girls” off his Mercury Nashville / 19 / Interscope Records No. 1 debuting first studio album Clear As Day, and “See You Tonight,” the Top 10 lead single off his second consecutive No. 1 album, See You Tonight.

Written by McCreery, Ashley Gorley and Zach Crowell, “See You Tonight” marks the first Platinum-selling single for McCreery as a writer in addition to being the artist, making it particularly special. “I Love You This Big,” written by Ronnie Jackson, Brett James, Ester Dean and Jay Smith, was McCreery’s country radio debut and first Top 15 single. “The Trouble with Girls” was written by Phillip White and Chris Tompkins, and remains a huge crowd favorite on McCreery tour dates.

Since his 2011 debut, McCreery has sold more than 2 million albums. He continues to cross the country headlining his See You Tonight Tour through the end of the year, and McCreery’s latest single, “Feelin’ It,” is currently climbing country radio’s Top 15.

Scotty McCreery Pays Tribute to Our Vetrans with “The Dash”

Scotty McCreery is a strong supporter of the men and women serving in the U.S. Military, paying tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice with his song “The Dash” (written by Kyle Jacobs and Preston Brust) on his current album, See You Tonight. McCreery performs this fan-favorite song every night in concert, accompanied by a poignant video created by Josh Carter that highlights the life of U.S. Marine Lance Corporal Andrew Carpenter. In honor of Veterans Day, McCreery has posted the video at his official Facebook page and YouTube site so that his fans can take a moment to remember the men and women who serve.

Carpenter, a native of Columbia, Tenn., was serving his second tour of duty in Afghanistan when he came under enemy fire and was fatally wounded on Valentine’s Day 2011. He passed away five days later, leaving behind his wife Chrissie who was pregnant with their first child, Landon. The town of Columbia later named a highway in honor of Carpenter and his service. Chrissie is the cousin of McCreery’s bass player, Nathan Thomas, who told the young singer about Carpenter’s life and sacrifice.

“My family and I have always been thankful for the men and women who protect us and lay down their lives to keep all Americans free,” said McCreery. “When Nathan told me the story about his cousin’s husband, I knew it was a very personal way to connect our audiences to the song ‘The Dash.’ On this day when we honor our military veterans, I could think of no better way to show my respect than to make sure my fans have a chance to know Andrew and his story. R.I.P. Andrew – there is no way I can truly thank you for your sacrifice, but I can make sure you are never forgotten.”

McCreery is currently touring in support of his sophomore album, See You Tonight, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums charts and features both his Gold-certified, Top 10 hit “See You Tonight” and his current Top 15 and climbing single, “Feelin’ It.” His record-breaking, Platinum-certified first album, Clear As Day, debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top 200 charts, making him the first country artist, as well as the youngest artist, to do so with their debut studio album. Clear As Day, which features fan-favorite songs such as “Trouble with Girls,” “Water Tower Town” and “I Love You This Big,” reached No. 1 on five separate Billboard charts – Billboard Top 200, Top Current Albums, Digital Albums, Internet Albums and Top Country Albums. McCreery, who won the tenth season of “American Idol” in 2011, has sold more than two million albums, won the ACM New Artist of the Year Award in 2011 and was named the Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist at the 2013 American Country Awards.

On the Eve of Turning 21, Scotty McCreery Asks Fans to Support 12.14 Foundation

Scotty McCreery, who is currently climbing the country music singles charts with his Top 20 hit “Feelin’ It” from his sophomore album See You Tonight, has grown up before the nation’s eyes since winning  the tenth season of “American Idol” at age 17. He’s earned a Platinum album, three Gold singles, a Top 10 hit, and headlined his first tour, all while graduating high school and taking college courses. On Thursday, Oct. 9, one of America’s favorite young performers hits another huge milestone when he turns 21.

McCreery asks that if his fans are thinking of sending him a gift, they consider making a donation to the 12.14 Foundation. The singer/songwriter serves as a National Goodwill Ambassador for the Newtown, CT-based foundation that plans to build a multi-purpose performing arts and education center as a beacon of hope and positive change for use by and to benefit people everywhere. McCreery has made multiple visits to Newtown to meet with families there since the 2012 shooting tragedy which shocked the nation.

“I’ve got such wonderful, generous fans, and they have been e-mailing my fan club asking what they could send me to celebrate my birthday,” said McCreery.  “They’ve already given me far more than I could ever have imagined by letting me live out my dreams, so I would like to encourage the fans to donate to the 12.14 Foundation. Together we can support a great organization doing positive things in a town that is still recovering. Let’s help them reach their goal of building a state-of-the art performing arts and education center. That would be the best birthday gift I could receive.”

Donations can be made by visiting the organization’s website at http://www.1214foundation.org/donate/. For those mailing checks, donations can be sent to 12.14 Foundation, P.O. Box 90, Newtown, CT, 06470.

McCreery will continue to support the organization when he bring his “See You Tonight Tour” with special guest Danielle Bradbery to the Toyota Oakdale in Wallingford, CT on Thursday, Dec. 4 for a 12.14 Foundation Benefit Concert. In conjunction with Live Nation Concerts, he will host a VIP pre-show party. Those attendees who purchase a VIP Pre Show Party Package will be able to meet him and hear him perform in an acoustic setting, while enjoying appetizers and beverages before the show. There are two ticket options available for purchase at oakdale.com and livenation.com. Tickets for just the concert itself are $55*, $45* and $35*. A limited number of the VIP Pre Show Party Package tickets – that also includes the concert – are available for $150*. (*additional fees apply)

After celebrating his birthday, McCreery will return to the road with upcoming dates in Fayetteville, NC (Oct. 17), Toms River, NJ (Oct. 18), Bethlehem, PA (Oct. 19) and many more. McCreery is currently touring in support of his sophomore album, See You Tonight, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums charts and features both his Gold-certified, Top 10 hit “See You Tonight” and his current Top 20 and climbing single, “Feelin’ It.” His record-breaking, Platinum-certified first album, Clear As Day, debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top 200 charts, making him the first country artist, as well as the youngest artist, to do so with their debut studio album. Clear As Day, which features fan-favorite songs such as “Trouble with Girls,” “Water Tower Town” and “I Love You This Big,” reached No. 1 on five separate Billboard charts – Billboard Top 200, Top Current Albums, Digital Albums, Internet Albums and Top Country Albums. McCreery, who won the tenth season of “American Idol” in 2011, was named the Artist of the Year: Breakthrough Artist at the 2013 American Country Awards.
