American Idol winner Scotty McCreery opens Luhrs season

SHIPPENSBURG - The H. Ric Luhrs Performing Arts Center at Shippensburg University presents Scotty McCreery at 8 p.m. Thursday, September 22, 2016.

Newcomer Seth Alley will open the show, which is the first of the season at the Luhrs Center.

Scotty McCreery burst onto the national music scene in 2011 at age 17, winning Season Ten of "American Idol " and quickly establishing himself as one of country music’s hottest new stars. Now in his early 20s, McCreery has toured with Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts, headlined his own tours, earned industry and fan accolades, and was named “Best American Idol” by the readers of The Los Angeles Times and “Country Music’s Sexiest Man” by the readers of NASH Country Weekly Magazine. He released his first book, "Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream," in 2016.

He wrote five songs for his next album, "See You Tonight," released in October 2013, including the single, "See You Tonight," which was certified Platinum and became his first Top Ten hit. Around the time he turned 21 in 2014, “Feelin’ It” became his second consecutive Top Ten hit. The single was later certified Gold in 2015. That same year, McCreery released his fan-favorite single “Southern Belle.”
