Scotty McCreery Co-Hosts 4/20-21

| April 15, 2024

The co-host this wknd is Scotty McCreery, who is in our Top 10 with Cab In a Solo. Scotty previews his new album Rise & Fall. The project includes a song he wrote about his baby boy Avery. Scotty was in Baltimore on a day off when Lon spoke with him.

This is Induction Weekend, and Scotty becomes the newest member of the Grand Ole Opry.  He was invited by Garth Brooks: ”My brain blacked out. It was a dream come true. So surreal.  Garth was so kind, met the family and my son. He may not remember it, but he got to meet Garth that night. Garth was in Vegas the day before, and flew to Nashville to do it.”

Scotty’s son Avery is 18 months old: ”He’s growing like a weed. He’s a big boy.  Just seeing him grow into his own personality. We baby-proofed the bus. One of the bunks is a crib.  He’s walking all over, climbing the stairs of the bus, but he’s great.”

Scotty’s college, North Carolina State, made it to the Final Four: ”It was such a cool run, such a buzz around both men & women, it was one of the best weeks in my life. The game was in Phoenix. We had a show in San Diego.  I was on at 6.  But I switched with Lee Brice. So I got to fly to the game, rushed to the airport, got to the show with 30 minutes to spare.”

Scotty and Chayce Beckham each won American Idol about ten years apart: ”I’m so proud of him, he wrote this song by himself, so that speaks to him as a writer and artist. This guy is a legit country music artist. He knows what it takes, and I’m sure we’ll see him on the road, and give him a big hug.”  

Scotty spotted Jelly Roll recently: He’s all over the TV.  I was at The Masters recently, and looked at the TV and saw Jelly speaking with Jim Nantz & Scott Van Pelt in Butler Cabin.  I even saw video of him playing golf with Chase Rice. So Jelly is taking over the golf world.”’

Scotty also has great stories this week about Luke Combs, Lainey Wilson, Chris Young, Megan Moroney, and Parker McCollum.

NEXT WEEK: Lainey Wilson
