Perhaps one of the best holiday shows for a cozy Christmas Eve at home this year will be FOX News Network’s premiere of “FOX & Friends Christmas Special”, which will air from 8:00 to 10:00 p.m with guest star Scotty McCreery. Remember McCreery, Season Ten winner of “American Idol?” Well, this winner didn’t just win and rest on his laurels; instead this uber talented young man ran with that award, released his debut album, which scored as the best-selling solo album released by a country artist in 2011, and soon broke records and expectations as he became the youngest man in history to have his first album debut atop the all-genre Billboard Top 200 albums chart. Now, that ain’t bad.
McCreer and his band played a lively Holly Jolly Christmas and Santa Claus is Coming to Town when the show was taped earlier this month. These two songs are part of the singer’s Gold-certified album, Christmas with Scotty McCreery, released in 2012 when it debuted as No. 1 on the Billboard Top Holiday Albums chart. The young artist is no longer new to having top hits, in fact, he just recently made his second consecutive Top 10 hit in “Feelin’ It,” a catchy tune from his sophomore album See You Tonight. See You Tonight debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Country Album chart.
The title song from the See You Tonight album was co-written by McCreery and was actually one of the three singles from the American Idol champion that were just certified Platinum by the RIAA in the same week. Most impressive for a gently reared, humble young man isn’t it The other two singles that made Platinum were The Trouble with Girls and I Love You This Big, both from his Platinum-certified first album Clear as Day. This seemingly laid-back, shy, even-keel young man is full of serious talent, taking home awards from the ACM, CMT Music, ACA and ICM, as well as, listen to this one – being ranked No. 2 on Country Weekly’s 2014 Sexiest Men Poll. No. 2 isn’t too shabby.
Don’t miss the FOX News Network’s premiere of “FOX & Friends Christmas Special” on FOX News Network on Christmas Eve (Dec. 24) from 8:00 – 10:00 PM/ET. The show will re-air later that evening from 11:00 PM – 1:00 AM/ET. It will also air twice on Christmas Day (Dec. 25): 2:00 AM – 4:00 AM/ET and again in the afternoon at 2:00 PM – 4:00 PM/ET.
