Home movie footage includes Scotty playing one of his first guitars and enjoying a new keyboard Christmas morning. The video ends with a special message from a young Scotty.

Scotty McCreery got into the Christmas spirit a little early this year by releasing his Christmas album, Christmas With Scotty McCreery, in October. The album is full of his favorite holiday songs — but his all-time favorite didn’t make the cut.
“My favorite Christmas song comes from my favorite Christmas album, and that’s Elvis’ Christmas album,” Scotty said. “I was an Elvis fanatic growing up. It was ‘Blue Christmas.’ When I was making my album, I knew I was going to put at least one Elvis song on there, so it came down to just deciding that nobody was going to sing ‘Blue Christmas’ like Elvis Presley, so we did ‘Santa Claus is Back in Town.’ But ‘Blue Christmas’ is definitely my favorite.” Continue Reading

“Growing up, Christmas was a special time of year for my family, probably our favorite time,” Scotty said. “It’s nice that we all get together as a family and spend time together.”

Scotty McCreery will turn his concert at the historic Beacon Theater in New York City into a benefit concert to help the victims of Hurricane Sandy. The show, scheduled for November 23 and originally billed as “Christmas with Scotty McCreery” is now being called the “Beacon Theater Benefit for Hurricane Sandy Relief.” A portion of ticket sales will go to World Vision’s Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
“Being from North Carolina, I have seen firsthand what hurricanes can do,” Scotty said. “After seeing the devastation caused by Sandy, I wanted to figure out a way to help. And given that we have a show at the Beacon Theater the day after Thanksgiving, I thought ‘why not turn that New York show into a benefit?’”
World Vision has focused on providing assistance to communities in Queens, Staten Island, Bronx, Yonkers and Coney Island in New York as well as in Hoboken and Egg Harbor township in New Jersey in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. They will be collecting donations during the concert in addition to Scotty’s contribution. Continue Reading
