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?”
Fans of Scotty McCreery will not want to miss Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream. This book peeks into McCreery’s childhood and family, his experience on American Idol, his faith, and more, and written in a conversational and down-to-earth style, it’s an easy but still interesting read. I really enjoyed it from start to finish and would heartily recommend it to readers who like Scotty McCreery, American Idol, or simply books by celebrities.
