Scotty McCreery and Family Get in the Christmas Spirit Early This Year
The 19-year-old singer returned home from the road in October -- the same month that his very first Christmas album, 'Christmas With Scotty McCreery,' hit stores -- and was surprised to find his family home decked out with plenty of holiday cheer, Christmas tree and all!
“I think I was on the road, actually, when she put it up, and I came home and I see the Christmas tree," McCreery explains in a statement. "I mean, it was like mid-October. It was the first time she’s ever done it like that, and it was mainly ‘cause the Christmas CD had come out in October. I can see where she kind of got in the mood early this year, but, normally, [the tree] doesn’t go up until Thanksgiving, or at least afterwards."
He adds, "We ain’t that crazy at our house.”
McCreery has a few work-related Christmas activities on his mind, too. Last week (November 5), McCreery spent some time in Nashville, where he filmed 'Christmas With Scotty McCreery and Friends' -- a holiday special set to air on the GAC network on December 1. The special will include performances of the 'Idol' star's favorite holiday classics from his new album, plus an original tune, 'Christmas in Heaven.' Gloriana, Jana Kramer and Brett Eldredge will also appear on the show.
Needless to say, McCreery's halls are decked.
