Scotty McCreery will sign copies of his new book in Garner on May 14 at First Baptist Church, his mother Judy McCreery confirmed.
McCreery’s book titled, “Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream,” is an autobiography and is expected to be released on May 3. McCreery told The News & Observer’s Cary News last week, the book will be about his experiences in the music industry, including the places he’s been, the people he’s met and the highs and lows.
“Hopefully some things I’ve been through, folks can relate to and pick up how I got through it or what I did in certain situations,” he said. “I hope it’s a good read for folks, and they get a little something out of it they can put in their own lives.”
One of the lows includes being robbed in May 2014. McCreery was with his friends watching “Gladiator” when they heard a knock on the door. Thinking it was a neighbor, they answered the door. Four armed men came in and took their wallets and phones.
Never miss a local story.
“That was little bit of a shake-up that night,” McCreery told the Cary News. “The good news is we’re all still alive and well, but it definitely puts it into perspective.”
May 14 is designated as “Scotty McCreery Day” in Garner.
Judy McCreery says Scotty may also sing a few songs at the book-signing.
Last Tuesday, McCreery stopped in Cary to talk with about 400 Triangle residents about how he takes care of his voice as part of Duke Voice Care Center’s 10th World Voice Day Celebration at the Cary Arts Center.
McCreery is set to perform at American Idol’s three-night grand finale in Los Angeles, which kicked off yesterday. He was the winner of the show’s 10th season in 2011.
