Scotty McCreery, Season 10 winner of the American Idol, performed at the Grand Ole Opry. With a deep voice and the classic country spirit, it is no wonder that a lot of the country fans love him. Being an Elvis Presley fan, he sure does know his history of country music.
This is why most of his songs are reminiscent of country music. One could say that he is an old soul trapped in a young man’s body. That is why you can almost hear the sound of the “old country” in his songs.
Scotty’s Performance at the Opry
This is not the singer’s first performance at the famous Grand Ole Opry. So you can see his confidence performing in one of country music’s biggest stages. Scotty’s performance of this medley was back on October 4, 2017. This performance was highly requested because of the people who were not able to watch his earlier performance back in July of the same year.
His performance was almost 9 minutes long. He started the medley with “Hello Darlin” by Conway Twitty and he nailed it. He followed it by “Forever and Ever Amen” by Randy Travis, “Folsom Prison Blues” by Johnny Cash, and “Chattahoochee” by Alan Jackson. He finished his performance with a fun rendition of “Sold” by John Michael Montgomery.
His song choice in this performance is quite genius as well. This is a collection of songs that best represent country music. You can never go wrong choosing songs from the country legends. And Scotty proved that by his amazing performance of the classic country medley.
The Singer’s Journey to Stardom
It has been an interesting journey for this young country artist. He first appeared at American Idol back in 2011. With his amazing stint in the competition, he beat his fellow country musician in the finals.
With this success, he then proceeded to release chart-topping songs such as “I Love You This Big“ and “The Trouble with Girls.” The first single from his album “See You Tonight” became his first song to reach the top ten on Billboard’s Country charts.
The singer has released four albums all in all. He’s been consistent in his music and he had toured around the world. He knows his audience and he gives that good ole classic country. That is why country fans still love him and support him with his music.
