Country music entertainer Scotty McCreery fulfilled a huge career goal when he opened for Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood at their sold-out show on Friday, Sept. 22 at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. The ACM, BMI and CMT Award winner’s appearance was kept secret, so his emergence on stage was a surprise for the entire 13,000 members of the audience who eagerly embraced him with cheers after his name was announced.

“It was a really incredible moment just being out there on that stage in front of a Garth crowd,” shared McCreery. “I was about as nervous as I’ve been before a show, probably ever, but as soon as they introduced me, the crowd went nuts and that kind of eased my nerves.”

McCreery flashed his trademark smile as the audience joyfully applauded him and his two acoustic guitarists, Jeffrey Harper and Dylan Rosson. As he kicked off the show with his Top 10, Platinum-certified hit “See You Tonight,” a huge crowd of fans began singing along with him word for word. For the next half hour, “Country Music’s Hottest Bachelor” performed an array of his hits and fan-favorite songs, energizing the crowd with his signature deep voice and fun-loving personality.

When McCreery began singing his current Top 40-and-climbing hit “Five More Minutes,” the audience cheered even louder. As he sang the lines “five more minutes” for the first time, a large number of concert-goers lifted their arms in the air, opened their palms, and extended their five fingers while singing the words back to him. These actions started a growing wave, with more of the audience joining in every time those three words were sung until nearly the entire arena was united by the final stanza. At the end of the song, McCreery received a standing ovation.


Country music entertainer Scotty McCreery performed as part of “Sam’s Place: Music for the Spirit” at the Ryman Auditorium last night (9/17). This was the final night in the 2017 season of the series of shows which is hosted by legendary Christian music entertainer Steven Curtis Chapman. McCreery performed three songs, including his current Top 40 smash “Five More Minutes” as well as his Platinum-certified Top 10 hit “See You Tonight” and his concert staple “Something More.” The ACM, BMI and CMT-Award winning singer/songwriter received a standing ovation from the audience after his performance. As a life-long fan of Chapman, McCreery was thrilled when the show’s host joined him on stage to perform a duet version of Chapman’s song “His Eyes.”

McCreery is currently in the studio recording his next album, which will be released on Triple Tigers Records / Sony Music Entertainment.
