Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery performed during the halftime show of the AutoZone Liberty Bowl in Memphis on New Year’s Eve (12/31/19), portions of which were aired live on ESPN. Several St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital patients joined him on stage, while an assortment of high school marching bands, the Lucid Dance Company, and the Liberty Bowl pageant queens participated in the performance on the field.
The night before (12/30) at the President’s Gala, he received the AutoZone Liberty Bowl Outstanding Achievement Award for his many services to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
A strong supporter of St. Jude, McCreery donated both the $25,000 he won on “Celebrity Family Feud” in 2018 and $25,000 from a Bumble social media promotion in 2019 to the organization. He sang on the Disney Radio multi-artist version of “Angels Among Us” in 2017, where proceeds were donated to St. Jude. He has also participated in the organization’s “This Shirt Saves Lives” campaigns for several years.
“Both my wife Gabi and I have visited St. Jude and have seen first hand the amazing work that goes on there,” said McCreery. “I’m always glad to help St. Jude and spread the word about what they do.”
McCreery returns to the road on January 17 in Wisconsin Dells, WI at the Crystal Grand Music Theater. He will perform at Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa event in Cancun on January 22-23.
