Scotty McCreery Releases First Book and Launches 14-City Book Signing Tour
During the first two weeks of May, the ACM and CMT Award winner will hold book signings at bookstores and venues in 14 cities.
Singer, songwriter, and now, author Scotty McCreery will release his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream, and launch his book signing tour on Tuesday, May 3. The book signing tour will begin in Ridgewood, New Jersey on release day and end in his hometown of Garner, North Carolina on May 14. See the bottom of this release for dates, locations and times.
McCreery envisions the book as a travelogue and takes the reader on a journey through his life, sharing stories such as his life-altering discovery of Elvis Presley at age five, auditioning for and ultimately winning “American Idol” season 10, and embarking on the country music career he had always dreamed about. He also reveals how he had to grow up quickly when he was thrust into the adult world at age 17, the way he balanced his senior year of high school and college experience with his active recording and touring career, and how he put life into perspective after being robbed at gunpoint. Throughout the book, he writes of how his faith, family and friends have kept him grounded and normal in the midst of a life in the entertainment business.
On May 3, McCreery will perform live on NBC’s “Today” during the 10-11:00 AM hour. The next day, May 4, the country music sensation will be interviewed live on “FOX & Friends” on the FOX News Channel. That same day, New York City-area viewers can also watch him being interviewed on WNYW-TV’s “Good Day New York.”
Before the book signing tour begins, McCreery will be featured on the cover of American Profilethis weekend. The national weekly magazine will circulate within community newspapers nationwide between April 29-May 3. In addition, the man recently named “Country Music’s Hottest Bachelor” will be a presenter on FOX’s “American Country Countdown Awards” on Sunday, May 1.
*The book tour ends in McCreery’s hometown of Garner, NC on May 14 (“Scotty McCreery Day”). This event will be held on the campus of the church where he is a member. Quail Ridge bookstore will sell books for McCreery to sign, and he will be doing a Q&A and performing a brief acoustic set.
Go Big or Go Home narrates McCreery’s journey from a kid imitating Elvis on the school bus to 30 million across America tuning in to see him win season ten of “American Idol” to building a successful country music career. McCreery shares a glimpse of where he came from and the impact his faith, family and friends have had on a humble guy who keeps asking “why me?” This is his journey from his North Carolina roots to winning America’s most popular singing competition and moving on to launch the musical career he had always dreamed about.
