McCreery is a life-long New England Patriots fan and was onsite in Arizona when his favorite team won the Super Bowl earlier this year. The former high school baseball pitcher is also a die-hard North Carolina State supporter. It’s a safe bet that both the Patriots and NC State will come up in conversation when McCreery talks sports.
The Mercury Nashville / 19 / Interscope Records recording artist is currently writing songs and preparing to work on his upcoming third album. McCreery scored two consecutive Top 10 hits (“See You Tonight” and “Feelin’ It”) from his sophomore album See You Tonight, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart. That album’s title song, co-written by the singer, was one of three singles from the “American Idol” champion that were certified Platinum by the RIAA in the same week (the other two being “The Trouble with Girls” and “I Love You This Big” from his Platinum-certified first album Clear as Day, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart). The ACM, CMT Music, ACA, and ICM Award winner will be performing at the Florida Strawberry Festival in Plant City, Florida on Feb. 27 and the Sunrise Theater in Ft. Pierce, Florida on Feb. 28. He will join Rascal Flatts on the road this summer beginning in May.
