Scotty McCreery, Fox's "American Idol 2011" Finale - Results Show - Press Room

Scotty Is A Busy Boy With Upcoming Appearances On The Grand ‘Ole Opry, Leno And Good Morning America


Heads up everybody and breathe a relieving sigh. American Idol winner Scotty McCreery is finally booked to appear on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno on June 15th.

CMT.Com has very generously provided the media with some noteworthy Scotty appearances.

Other scheduled appearances include Scotty’s debut on the Grand Ole Opry on June 10, just two days after serving as a presenter at the CMT Music Awards in Nashville.

Then it’s off to Jay Leno followed by a later appearance on Good Morning America on Aug. 12.

CMT went on to say: McCreery’s debut country single, “I Love You This Big,” debuted at No. 32 on Billboard’s country airplay chart. It’s the highest debut for a new artist’s first single since 1990. “I am humbled and shocked by this news,” McCreery said. “I can’t tell you what it means to me to be on the same charts as my musical heroes. I want to thank my fans and especially country radio for their support.” McCreery will participate in the American Idols Live 2011 tour starting July 6 in Salt Lake City.”

Special thanks to MCL reader, Louise, for making me aware of this news, especially the postponed Leno appearance.

  1. SO happy to hear this. Scotty is awesome & deserves the best. I signed up for the text chat with Scotty so here are some other important Scotty Facts:

    1) He thinks he is going to use his Ford prize to get an F150 pick-up truck.
    2) His fastball is in the low 80’s & when he hit his average was .330 – pretty darned good in my opinion.
    3) He is hoping to sing “Gone” on the Tour.
    4) He is hoping to go to college in Nashville so he can continue to record AFTER he finishes his senior year in high school.
    5) He thinks Paul McDonald was the biggest prankster in the mansion.


    Thank you
