Publisher's Summary

Platinum-award winning country music star Scotty McCreery shares his path from North Carolina to American Idol to the top of the country music scene.

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 dreamt about.

Go Big or Go Home narrates Scotty's journey from a kid imitating Elvis on the school bus to 30 million 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?"

Scotty has/is a truly amazing young man!

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!

Totally awesome

Would you consider the audio edition of Go Big or Go Home to be better than the print version?

Yes I would, because I think hearing Scotty reading the story. I was able to picture it better, able to see what he was going through at the time.

What did you like best about this story?

His experience on American Idol

What does Scotty McCreery bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings it more to life. Hearing him read it, made it feel more real to me.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Oh yes, it's been on my list since it became available

Any additional comments?

Scotty McCreery keep up the great work!

Love it!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

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!
