Thank you BookLook Bloggers for partnering with me on this Scotty McCreery “Go Big or Go Home” blog post!
I remember the days of watching Scotty McCreery on American Idol. His voice, no matter what your music genre of choice was, made you look. I loved that he was humble and just thankful of someone saying he was talented. Following his journey, and seeing him grow into a superstar pretty quickly was amazing.
Now we get to read about his story. Getting to hear how from a young age, Elvis made a big impression on him, lets you see how it all started. Being able to follow along even closer on his journey through this book makes it even more memorable.
In today’s world of “get rich quick” and “YouTube Sensations”, there aren’t many left who get famous from true talent. Scotty is one of those that has that gift in his soul to bring you good music. Plus, his strength to share his faith was something that made me want to vote for him, and hear about him even more. A young man in today’s world, strong enough to say that his talent came from God and not boast about how awesome he was, but give credit where credit was due, made me want to see him grow even more!
I’ll never forget that time watching him sing with the “I Am Second” bracelet on….that was kind of something like a sign to those who know what that ministry stands for, to know that Scotty was true to his word of giving credit to God.
This is a great book for anyone who loves the music, or just likes to read about the story of someone’s dream coming true. I would definitely recommend it and use it for a gift idea for those who are interested!! Thank you BookLook for letting me review this great writing!
It was just a simple singing competition that would be fun to audition for. Who knew what kind of doors it might open for a sixteen-year-old from Garner, North Carolina.
Go Big or Go Home is the story of a kid with country songs in his soul. The special thing with Scotty McCreery, however, is that he has this God-given ability to sing those tunes the exact way they should be sung. Daring to enter the limelight at such a young age, Scotty finds himself embraced by the nation, and even overseas, as he competes on “American Idol”. This is his journey from his North Carolina roots to winning America’s most popular singing competition and launching a musical career he had always dreamt about.
Go Big or Go Home narrates Scotty’s journey from a kid imitating Elvis on the school bus to 30 million across America tuning in to see him win Season 10 of “American Idol”. Now as he completes his ground-breaking fourth album, Scotty shares a glimpse of where he came from and the impact his faith, family and friends have had on a humbled guy who keeps asking “why me?”
