Using ‘American Idol’ as launch pad, Scotty McCreery rockets to the top – “It’s definitely a challenge balancing everything, but it’s fun,” said McCreery, who performs Friday at Centre College’s Norton Center for the Arts in Danville. “We’re enjoying it, and I think it will be good for me in the long run. But it’s a lot that we’re trying to do right now. We’re just trying to have a good time with it all.” A native of Garner, N.C., McCreery stood out immediately from the usual array of pop hopefuls on American Idol in 2011, largely because his age (he was 17) didn’t match his tough-as-oak baritone or the versed phrasing that came with it. – Read more at

We always fall back on the idea that this is their world. We strive to let them make up as many rules as we can.
