The Cohen Community Series presents multi-Platinum country music star Scotty McCreery in concert with hits from throughout his 10-year career, including songs from his new album, 'Same Truck.'
It’s been a decade since Scotty McCreery burst onto the international stage with honest, relatable lyrics and smooth-as-velvet vocals. A down-to-earth demeanor that endears fans around the world, McCreery just released his highly anticipated fifth album, Same Truck, featuring 12 songs, with 10 co-written by him. The North Carolina native was catapulted into stardom when, at 17, he won season 10 of “American Idol” in 2011. He was both the first country artist and youngest male artist at the time to debut their first project at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 album chart.
Since then, McCreery has earned a Platinum and two Gold albums, sang for a president, opened for Garth Brooks, toured with Old Dominion, Brad Paisley and Rascal Flatts, wrote a book (Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream), and made Steve Harvey laugh on “Celebrity Family Feud.”
On Same Truck, his warm bass vocals resonate with an emotional depth as he tells stories that touch hearts and bring people together. The album’s first single, “You Time,” recently climbed to the top of the country radio charts and he has just released the second single, “Damn Strait.” Whether he’s singing about loss (“The Waiter”), love (“You Time”), passion (“That Kind of Fire”) or faith (“How Ya Doin’ Up There?”), he pulls audiences into every one of his songs with an openness that has them singing along, eager to see what’s next.
The Cohen Community Series was inaugurated in 2008 through a gift from Jon Stewart, former vice chairman of the JCCC Board of Trustees, JCCC alumnus and former president of Metcalf Bank. It was established in honor of the late Barton P. Cohen, president of Metcalf Bancshares, vice chairman and general counsel of Metcalf Bank and an attorney with Blackwell Sanders Peper Martin LLP.
Previous Cohen Community Series presenters have included Phil Vassar, Josh Turner, Lonestar, Sawyer Brown, Tracy Lawrence, Diamond Rio, George Will, Marcus Buckingham and Vince Gill.
