MCCREERY’S HEARTWARMING TRIBUTE

It is always charming and heartwarming to find out that a celebrity most looks up to for being so talented turns out to have a warm character.

Such is McCreery who once paid tribute to a late veteran, Lance Corporal Andrew Carpenter through his song. The soldier's heartwarming story moved the talented singer, and he decided to feature him in his lovely piece, “The Dash.”

“The Dash” is a 2014 release which became a fan favorite thanks to McCreery’s skillful songwriting. He notably directed the lyrics at Carpenter who died on the war front in Afghanistan.

The music video is an emotional piece as it played out to memorable shots of Carpenter while growing up and those of his widow, Chrissy and their son, Landon as a newborn sleeping while lying down in his military uniform.

CARPENTER’S STORY

According to the description written to accompany the video on YouTube, Carpenter had bravely left his then-pregnant wife, Chrissy, to fight for his country. He went under the enemy’s fire on February 14, Valentine's Day, nearly a decade ago, in 2011.

Carpenter died a brave soldier some five days later from complications of the extensive injuries he had sustained during the battle.

Chrissy delivered Landon, just a few months after his passing. The little boy didn't know it yet, but he would never get to meet and share memorable times with his father. Thankfully, he has Chrissy who has remained strong despite Carpenter's tragic demise.

Carpenter was laid to rest in Nashville, and the town of Columbia named a highway after him to honor his memory. Carpenter's sad story particularly touched McCreery and caused him to dedicate the song to him.

THERE IS A LOT MORE TO MCCREERY THAN MEETS THE EYE

The heartfelt tribute has shown fans that McCreery, who rose to fame after he won the tenth season of “America Idol,” has a lot more to him than what meets the eye.

There are a lot of reasons to fall in love with the “See You Tonight” singer and it is not just his deep baritone.

One detail most do not know is that way before his “American Idol” win, McCreery emerged the winner of a contest called, “Clayton Idol”?
