It was just a simple singing competition that would be fun to audition for. Who knew what kind of doors it might open for a 16-year-old from Garner, North Carolina?
Go Big or Go Home is the story of a kid with country songs in his soul. The special thing with Scotty McCreery, however, is that he has this God-given ability to sing those tunes the exact way they should be sung. Daring to enter the limelight at such a young age, Scotty finds himself embraced by the nation and even overseas as he competes on American Idol. This is his journey from his North Carolina roots to winning America's most popular singing competition and launching a musical career he had always dreamed about.
Go Big or Go Home narrates Scotty's journey from a kid imitating Elvis on the school bus to 30 million people across America tuning in to see him win season 10 of American Idol. Now, as he completes his groundbreaking fourth album, Scotty shares a glimpse of where he came from and the impact his faith, family, and friends have had on a humbled guy who keeps asking, "Why me?"

The 1st time we saw him in the tryouts of American Idol, I turned to my husband and said, "he's going to be the one to watch this year!" I'm so glad he won. I knew he was an amazing young man then and over the last 5 years, I've thought the same several times. And now his book..... I purchased it this morning and couldn't turn it off until the end.
Scotty, congratulations to you and to your parents..... you truly are an amazing child of God!
Say something about yourself!
Loved every minute of this book. Have been a huge fan since I first saw him on competition. A real God fearing man who is not afraid to show his soft side. Well Done Scotty!
