BIO: Scotty McCreery made history in season 10 of American Idol as the youngest male to win the series. Even though this country artist never fully swayed away from his roots, he’s remembered for his Top 3 performance where he sang a country tune with rap-like cadences. This performance was what made him a household name. McCreery’s coronation single “I Love You This Big” debuted on the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart after he won the series.

McCreery’s first musical influence was Elvis Pressly after his grandmother gifted him a book about the artist at age five or six. He later went on to begin learning guitar at age nine or ten. This singer was heavily involved in choir as a child and went on to join a vocal ensemble that performed around the United States. Ahead of American Idol, he performed in church and at multiple concerts.

This country singer announced his engagement to his longtime girlfriend Gabi Dugal in September 2017. The couple tied the knot on June 16, 2018.
