AMERICAN IDOL Winner Scotty McCreery Coming to bergenPAC, 7/11
Bergen Performing Arts Center located at 30 North Van Brunt Street in Englewood New Jersey is proud to present American Idol Winner Scotty McCreery Friday, July 11th 2014 8PM. Be sure to reserve tickets for this show at www.ticketmaster.com or Box Office at 201.227.1030.
In two short years, Scotty McCreery became one of country's hottest new stars, with album sales topping 1.6 million, including a platinum-selling debut album that made Billboard history and helped him win several new artist awards. During this whirlwind career explosion, he sang for President Barack Obama, performed the national anthem at the World Series, appeared on ABC's "Good Morning America" and NBC's "TODAY Show," and toured the country from coast to coast.
In 2011, America fell in love with McCreery, then a shy 17-year-old boy with a wide smile, preternaturally deep voice and a love of faith, family and his hometown of Garner, N.C.. But that boyish image is merely a fond memory now that he's turning 20. While the core of who he is and what he stands for remains the same, his strong voice has deepened as he has grown into a seasoned, confident performer. His impressive evolution is immediately evident on his second studio album, See You Tonight, which artfully captures who he is now, both as an artist and as a man.
Five months after winning Season 10 of "American Idol," McCreery released his debut album, Clear As Day, which became the best-selling solo album released by a country artist in 2011. Indeed, he became the youngest man in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart. Clear As Day was certified platinum for sales of one million in just thirteen weeks, and the first two singles from that album were each certified gold. In 2012, his Christmas album, Christmas with Scotty McCreery, was also certified gold. He was named Top New Artist by Billboard and won best new artist awards at the Academy of Country Music Awards, the American Country Awards, and the CMT Awards.
