Kansas Star to host platinum-selling country star

12 September 2016

(PRESS RELEASE) -- Multi-platinum-selling country artist Scotty McCreery brings his signature deep vocals to the Kansas Star Arena on Friday, 16 December.

McCreery burst onto the music scene in 2011 after he won Season 10 of "American Idol" at the age of 17. Shortly after, McCreery released his debut album "Clear as Day," which went on to top both the all-genre Billboard Top 200 album charts and the country music charts and earned Platinum status. He followed that success with his Gold-certified holiday album "Christmas with Scotty McCreery," which hit #1 on the charts.

His third studio album, 2013's "See You Tonight," also hit #1 and produced two Top 10 hit singles: the Platinum-certified "See You Tonight" and the Gold-certified "Feelin' It." In 2016, he released his first book, "Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream," and also performed a new song on the Grand Ole Opry titled "Five More Minutes." The Opry put the video of his performance on its YouTube channel later that month. To date, it has received more than 1 million views.

McCreery has sold nearly 3 million albums and has received numerous accolades, including two American Country Awards, one CMT Award and one Academy of Country Music Award. He also became the first country music artist in history and the youngest male artist in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart. He has earned three Platinum singles and one Gold single, and received his first BMI Award for writing one of the Top 50 country songs of 2015 for "See You Tonight." Readers of the Los Angeles Times named him "Best American Idol" while readers of NASH Country Weekly Magazine voted him "Country Music's Sexiest Man."

The show begins at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Saturday, 17 September. Tickets start at $20 and can be purchased at the Kansas Star Casino website. This is an all-ages show.
