Scotty McCreery

Country star Scotty McCreery will play for a sold-out show at the Surf Ballroom Saturday.

FOREST CITY — Scotty McCreery, one of country music’s hottest new stars, has been added to the lineup for the inaugural Tree Town Music Festival at Heritage Park of North Iowa on Memorial Day weekend, May 24-25.

McCreery, who played a sold-out show at the Surf Ballroom on Feb. 8, joins headliners Brad Paisley and Toby Keith, Brantley Gilbert, Chris Young, Tyler Farr, Charlie Worsham, David Nail, JT Hodges, Leah Turner, Sarah Darling and The Last Ride.

In October 2013, McCreery launched his second consecutive No. 1-debuting album with sophomore release “See You Tonight.”

The album’s Top Ten title track marks McCreery’s third RIAA Gold-certified single and his first as a writer. On the album, McCreery continues to showcase his bass voice while blending contemporary and traditional country to create a sound unique to the young college student.

Since his 2011 debut, McCreery has had album sales topping 1.6 million. His platinum-selling debut album, “Clear As Day,” made Billboard history by debuting No. 1 on the Top 200 chart — a first for a country artist on their first studio album, and making McCreery the youngest man of any genre to open at the top of the chart.

“Clear As Day” helped McCreery earn Best New Artist recognition from the Academy of Country Music, American Country Awards and CMT Music Awards.

McCreery has played for President Obama, sung the national anthem at the World Series, performed in the Macy’s Day Parade, played for thousands from coast to coast, and become a favorite of all ages due to the universal appeal of his music, his warmth and his all-American values.
