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.
