Scotty McCreery Has Run-In With Keith Urban in the Bathroom
Of all the unlikely places to meet one of your idols, the bathroom has to rank up there at the very top. ‘American Idol’ Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery is in Nashville working on his debut album so it’s no surprise that he would cross paths with other country stars based on location. However, CMT reveals that McCreery ran into one of his idols –that’d be Keith Urban– while using the restroom.
While a bathroom run-in is often awkward, the McCreery/Urban impromptu meeting was a bit stranger than most since McCreery walked in on Urban while he was singing. When you have a voice like Urban, you want to sing all the time, even when in the men’s room.
“I was in the bathroom, and I walked in and somebody was singin’ and I was like ‘Who’s this cat in here singing like that?'” McCreery recalled. “And out walks Keith Urban. So we kind of met cool in the bathroom like that. We washed our hands before we shook hands.” At least they both followed germ protocol before exchanging a handshake.
What would have been even cooler was if they engaged in an off-the-cuff duet and recorded it on an iPhone after washing and shaking hands. Okay, maybe that would be too weird, but you never know.
McCreery continued, “It’s really cool for me to see these people that I’ve looked up to for so long and just have, kind of, lowdown cool encounters, just saying, ‘Hey.'”
