Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream, Scotty McCreery’s debut book from 2016, was re-released in paperback earlier this week on January 7. McCreery, who co-authored the book with writer Travis Thrasher, views the project as a travelogue through events in his life instead of a full memoir. “I wrote this book when I was 22 years old. I thought I was too young to write an autobiography, but at the same time, I had already experienced some pretty amazing adventures in life, television and the music business and had learned some key life lessons. So I structured the book more like a conversation about my journey thus far, sharing some behind the scenes details, and revealing what I had learned.” Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream can be found wherever books are sold, including Amazon (https://amzn.to/2FEJuAN), Barnes and Noble (https://bit.ly/39ZLdyz) and more.
During the early hours of Saturday, January 11, McCreery and his wife Gabi ran in the Walt Disney World Half Marathon in Orlando, Florida. The couple, dressed in t-shirts representing Buzz Lightyear and Forky, characters from the animated movie “Toy Story 4,” received their Finisher Medals after completing the entire 13.1 miles of the event which ran through the Walt Disney World Resort. “Being in this half marathon was something that Gabi and I decided to do several months ago when we were setting goals for 2020,” said McCreery. “We are both huge Disney fans, especially Gabi. This seemed like the perfect half marathon for us to do together.”
The Triple Tigers recording artist is currently in the Top 25-and-rising on both the Billboard and Mediabase/Country Aircheck country charts with his single “In Between” from his No. 1 album Seasons Change. He wrote the song with Frank Rogers, Jessi Alexander, and Jonathan Singleton. McCreery returns to the road this week on January 17 in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin at the Crystal Grand Music Theater and January 18 in Washington, Illinois at the Caterpillar Performing Arts Center. He’ll travel to Cancun to perform at Luke Bryan’s Crash My Playa on January 22-23.
