OFFSTAGE: Scotty McCreery: Different but the Same

Published on August 07, 2012 by CMT News

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

Of course, Scotty McCreery’s life
was turned upside down when he won American Idol. That’s a given, and you really have to be ready for that massive
change when you first step in front of the judge’s table. But fortunately for McCreery, who seems to have a good head on his
shoulders, he is still the same guy he was before. “My life has changed, but I think the person I am pretty much stayed the
same,” he told
the M Live website
before he played a show in Michigan last week. “I went from being an average teenager working at a
grocery store in the country, to playing music every night and doing what I loved. It’s been a huge blessing. I learned a
lot of things last year about the industry and about myself.” He credits good family, good church, good morals and a small
hometown with helping him stay grounded. In a couple of weeks, McCreery will be starting his first year of college at North
Carolina State University, with most classes on Mondays and Wednesdays so that his Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays
are free for touring.
