Country music star Scotty McCreery coming to the MACC
KAHULUI – Scotty McCreery will perform in the Maui Arts & Cultural Center’s Castle Theater on Wednesday, Feb. 22, at 7:30 p.m.
McCreery burst onto the national music scene in 2011, winning season 10 of “American Idol” at age 17, quickly establishing himself as one of country music’s hottest new stars. His deep voice and irresistible sound create a perfect blend of contemporary and traditional country.
Now in his early twenties, the talented singer/songwriter has album sales approaching 3,000,000, received both Platinum and Gold album certifications, debuted three consecutive albums at No. 1 on a Billboard chart, and achieved one Gold and three Platinum-certified singles as well as two top ten hits.
McCreery has toured with Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts, headlined his own tours, earned industry and fan accolades, and was named “Best American Idol” by the readers of The Los Angeles Times and “Country Music’s Sexiest Man” by the readers of NASH Country Weekly Magazine.
His debut album, “Clear As Day,” was certified Platinum for sales of one million units in just 13 weeks, and the first two singles from that album (“I Love You This Big” and “The Trouble with Girls”) have also since been certified Platinum. He won the New Artist of the Year Award at both the Academy of Country Music (ACM) Awards and the American Country Awards in 2011.
His sophomore album, “See You Tonight,” was released in October 2013 and debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. He co-wrote five songs on the album, including the first single, “See You Tonight,” which was certified Platinum and became his first top ten hit. The song would go on to earn McCreery his first BMI Award for writing one of the “Top 50 Country Music Songs of 2015.”
