McCreery, now at age 24, has turned out to be known for his commitment to keeping country music country, as reported by Country Music Nation.
The vocalist, who is a professed Christian, might still be young. However, he's gained credibility among traditionalists for his talent at covering great tunes released far before he was even born.
McCreery was named the Season 10 champion of "American Idol" on May 25, 2011, making him the youngest male winner at 17 years and seven months old. He went head to head in the finale against Lauren Alaina.
Even years after his "American Idol" debut, the "I Love You This Big" singer continues to amaze the world.
Last year, McCreery also performed “That’s All Right, Mama” when he appeared on the WSM radio show Coffee, Country & Cody. The singer couldn't help but smile throughout the performance, Country Rebel reported.
McCreery released his debut studio album, "Clear as Day," in October 2011. The album was certified platinum in the United States.
In October 2012, he released a Christmas album, "Christmas with Scotty McCreery," and it has been certified gold.
His third album, "See You Tonight," was released in October 2013. The first single from the album was also called "See You Tonight," which became his first song to reach the top ten on Billboard's Country charts.
According to Billboard, “The song has a definite contemporary sheen. It's probably not going to win any Song of the Year prizes, but it's just 3:19 of fun. Sometimes, that's as it should be!”
In July 2017, McCreery, who is a sports fan, set a new record with his single "Five More Minutes." He became the only country music artist in Country Aircheck/Mediabase history to chart a song without the backing of a record label.
In March 2018, he released his most recent album called "Seasons Change."
