There aren’t a lot of songs Scotty McCreery‘s deep voice can’t handle, but Conway Twitty‘s “Hello Darlin’” was practically made for him. During a recent stop at Nashville’s iconic Grand Ole Opry, McCreery took a few moments to pay tribute to Twitty with the song, which was a top hit in the ’70s. The crowd began to cheer as soon as they realized what he’d be covering. He talked through the first couple of lines, but when he began to belt the biggest parts of “Hello Darlin’,” McCreery couldn’t hide his impressive talent. He was clearly comfortable inside that famous Opry circle. The singer didn’t walk the stage or put on too much of a performance, because his voice was enough. When he sang the song’s last few notes, the audience roared with applause. “That’s Conway Twitty, y’all,” McCreery told the audience, smiling. “Thank you so much, Grand Ole Opry, y’all have a great night.” Expect new music from McCreery to come in 2015.

I have done great things for you, so let Me fill you with Joy. Take ample time to ponder all I have done for you. Rejoice in My goodness and My greatness as you remember My marvelous deeds. Rest in My intimate Presence; relax in My everlasting arms. I long to fill you with Joy, but you must collaborate with Me in this process.
Do not be like a spoiled child on Christmas Day-hastily tearing open all the presents and then saying, Is that all? Every single day is a precious gift from Me! Search for Me within the boundaries of this day, and you will surely find Me. I am present not only in pleasant things but also in unwanted circumstances. My Joy is sufficient for all situations, and I adjust it according to your need. When things are going your way, My gladness intensifies your delight. When you encounter hard things, I give you a deep, bold Joy that clings to Me for help. Receiving My Joy requires not only time but also courage.
The Lord has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy. -Psalm 126:3
The eternal God is your refuge, and underneath are the everlasting arms. -Deuteronomy 33:27 nkjv
You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. -Jeremiah 29:13 nkjv
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith-of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire-may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy. -1 Peter 1:6-8
