Scotty McCreery won the hearts of ‘American Idol’ judges when he auditioned singing ‘Your Man’ by Josh Turner in Season 10. Fans quickly fell for the singer with the strong faith and no-frills, honest country sensibility. Prior to auditioning, he was a popular vocalist at church and choir groups in Garner, N.C. The youngest of two kids born to Mike and Judy McCreery, Scotty grew up with dreams of playing professional baseball. In high school, he was a pitcher known for his devastating curveball. Even after winning ‘Idol,’ he went back to school for his senior year and competed for the Trojans while promoting his debut album ‘Clear as Day.’ After graduating, he continued his education at N.C. State University.
Birthday: October 9, 1993
Top Songs: 'I Love You This Big,' 'See You Tonight'
Fun Fact: Scotty is related to MLB Hall of Famer Jim 'Catfish' Hunter.
Danielle Bradbery maxed out her time on the Taste of Country Top 10 Video Countdown, so this week, there's a new No. 1 in town. Scotty McCreery's 'Feelin' It' video has taken the top spot, but there's also a big surprise in the Top 10!
Scotty McCreery is a strong supporter of servicemen and women -- something he proves each night on tour -- and in honor of Veterans Day, the 'Feelin' It' singer wanted to go the extra mile to show his gratitude.
Some of country's top stars and up-and-comers took time out from their busy schedules this Halloween to celebrate with some cool, creative costumes and even share some pictures with fans via social media.

When fans first met Scotty McCreery, he could barely drive. Now, the country star is a grown man with a thriving career and dedicated fanbase. He continues to be a role model even as his music matures to include more age-appropriate subject matter. It's truly difficult to imagine McCreery's life going off the rails, even if he is 21 years old now.
Just eight artists remain in the month-long battle to decide country music’s best fanbase. Round 2 of the 2014 Taste of Country Fan Football League has begun, and it continues with this matchup of Western Division rivals.
