Thanks for all your anonymous phone calls and comments. Your pleas have been answered -- more Scotty McCreery news!
First up, Scotty and his shadow ('American Idol' runner-up Lauren Alaina) will tread on holy country ground Friday night, when they perform on the Grand Ole Opry stage. WSM Radio will live-stream the "Friday Night Opry" show on their website (click "Listen Live Now" in the top right corner). The show begins at 7 p.m. and will also feature Roy Clark, Randy Travis, Billy Ray Cyrus, Bradley Gaskin, Charley Pride, and Mel Tillis.
-Also, N&O preps reporter Tim Stevens mentioned earlier this week that Scotty will also be playing ball in Nashville this weekend. On Saturday, June 11, he is scheduled to play in the 21st Annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge in Nashville. The game starts at 9 a.m. Saturday, but I have no information about any way to view it online. Scotty is in Nashville for the big CMA Music Festival weekend.
-And in case you missed it, the Garner-Clayton Record had a story on Wednesday about Scotty attending an American Legion baseball game while he was home this past weekend on a break. Scotty got a team hat and jersey and sat in the press box for part of the game.
-Finally, check out this awesome new map the town of Garner has published of their town, complete with Scotty points of interest highlighted. Cute, but I'm sure I'm not the first person to point out that there's no tag on Bojangles!
