Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina Career Debuts at Grand Ole Opry.
Well, we already know American Idol winner, Scotty McCreery, and runner-up Lauren Alaina are headed to Nashville for next week for the CMT Music Awards and CMA Music Festival. Now, it seems they are packing even more into their already busy schedule of appearances and performances. Both are interested in pursuing a country music career, and it looks like they will be making their debuts in one of the most iconic ways possible, through the Grand Ole Opry. The two have been added to the Friday, June 10th concert at the Opry, joining the ranks of Randy Travis and Billy Ray Cyrus who are also scheduled to perform that night.
As if that wasn’t enough, Scotty and Lauren will also be heading out Saturday with Vince Gill, Dierks Bentley, David Nail and others for the 21st annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge to raise money for the City of Hope’s life-saving research, treatment and education programs in the fight against cancer.
Scotty’s and Lauren’s schedules are wearing me out! Next week is going to be intense for them, but what an amazing opportunity for the two to be able to sing at the Grand Ole Opry especially so soon after wrapping up Idol. Not to mention how amazing it must seem for the two of them to be sharing the stage and getting involved with some of country music’s most popular alumni.
