With Special Guest Dylan Brady
Peoples Bank Theatre welcomes Scotty McCreery back to our stage! McCreery has become one of country music’s hottest stars with more than 3 million albums sold and two recent back-to-back No. 1 Platinum-certified hits: “Five More Minutes” and “This is It.” Those songs, along with his current single “In Between,” are from his album Seasons Change, as is his song “Barefootin’,” which hit No. 1 on the Beach Music Top 40 Chart. McCreery co-wrote all 11 songs on the album, a first for him.
McCreery recently celebrated his first wedding anniversary with his wife Gabi, his high school sweetheart whom he met on the first day of kindergarten. Their engagement was the subject of his song “This is It” and the music video was filmed at their wedding in the mountains of North Carolina. The couple recently adopted a yellow Labrador named Moose. When not at home with his wife and puppy, the singer/songwriter can be found performing concerts to packed crowds across the country. He will embark on his first shows in the United Kingdom and Germany later this year. After becoming a national sensation by winning “American Idol,” McCreery went on to become an ACM, BMI, Carolina Beach Music, CMT, and NSAI Award winner. He has earned both a Platinum and Gold album, one Gold and five Platinum singles, and authored the book Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream.
Singer-songwriter Dylan Brady has a sound that is back to the future. While maintaining the live instrumentation and storytelling integrity of early country, his music drips with new-age soaring melodies and pop breakdowns.
A New York native, Dylan Brady transplanted to Nashville, TN in 2016. He has since seen success including opening for Zac Brown Band, collaborating with Joe Don Rooney of Rascal Flatts and cutting a track written by Shay Mooney of Dan + Shay. He has also represented ASCAP at CMA Fest and has co-written with Ido Zmishlany (Shawn Mendes) & Mike Campbell (Dierks Bentley, Daya, Great Big World) as well as performing on Grace VanderWaal ‘s album Just the Beginning. Diagnosed with Tourettes at the age of 13, Dylan found surprising relief from the neurobiological disorder’s symptoms when he would play music. His drive to help young kids feel included despite their differences caught the eye of Disney channel. Dylan was later featured on the series Make Your Mark and debuted his first song on Radio Disney.
He’s since emerged beyond his Disney Channel days and is coming into his own, crafting an addictive style of country music. Inspired by his mother’s southern upbringing, his influences growing up included Rascal Flatts, Tim McGraw, and Billy Currington; later growing to love Ed Sheeran, Bruno Mars and Jason Mraz it is no wonder his music is an interesting blend of pop and country.
