I've got tickets for Chris and myself.....can't wait for Sept. 4 to hear Scotty's new music!....and his old music, for that matter!! 😄😍🥰

I got to watch the concert Friday night and again last night. Scotty and the band were GREAT!!!  Loved the new single and the Travis Tritt cover was awesome. When it’s just Scotty and his guitar ... h

I've always liked Cam's voice.  Very "adult" sounding, smoothe.   (and that's a good thing) Not such a screening " teen" voice.  lol

I was able to record the show with the Screen recorder feature on Windows and put it on my phone as well so now I can watch or listen whenever and wherever I want! 


Wow.  That's cool.

Scotty McCreery picked up where he left off in March when he stepped foot on the Ryman Auditorium stage on Friday night (Sept. 4). He'd played his final pre-pandemic show at country music's Mother Church early in the year, on a winter night that would prove to be the venue's final "normal" concert for quite awhile.

For Billy D, that was a rave review.  I'm glad he admitted that his kids were a distraction at times...instead of faking that he watched very moment with total attention to the screen.  So many reviewers really just mention the song list that is given out....repeating them in their review, without actually seeing the full performance.

I still think they could have had a lot more safely in the audience, like 500 to 600.  Yes Billy Dukes has become a Scotty fan.  Dare we say Scottified?

 

Billy's right, Scotty kept his eyes on the balcony or higher a lot.  I notice that during the concert.

Well, as Sandy and I have been discussing, we can be pretty sure that there will be no full band shows for the next month....since Jeff Harper embarked on a month-long trip with his new s.o.

Scotty McCreery Walks Onto a Real Stage After 176 Days Off Stage

What He Told Us About Playing for a Live Audience Again
 

by alison bonaguro 27m ago

 

There were 176 nights between Scotty McCreery’s last live show and his recent one.

That’s a lot of nights to not be able to do the things you were seemingly born to do: sing country music and connect with fans in real life.

And I recently had the chance to ask McCreery what it was like to take the stage again on Sept. 4 at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium after not playing for a live audience since his show on March 12 in Greensboro, NC. All because of the COVID-19 pandemic and its ensuing quarantine and live music shutdown.

But first, there are things you need to know about McCreery’s Live at the Ryman show. The venue took safety very seriously, and followed the rules and regulations of the Nashville Public Health Department and Vanderbilt Health. Only 125 people were allowed into the theater that usually seats around 2,300 people, which was a five percent capacity audience. And seating was done in pods of up to six people, masks were mandatory for guests and staff, and there was no food or beverage service.

 

CMT.com: What did it even feel like? Were you nervous? Did it all come back to you?

 

McCreery: It was different for sure. I’d been looking forward to it, but right before we walked on stage, me and the band were like, “We’re not nervous, but we’re just slightly uncomfortable.” Just not knowing what to expect. But seeing those faces in the crowd again was so great. You couldn’t see them smiling — because they were all in masks — but you could tell in their eyes that they were. It was good to be back together with the band and playing for people, not for a computer screen.

 

When was the last time you’d played for a live audience?

 

You mean, other than sitting around a campfire? It would’ve been in North Carolina on March 12. It was right when things were starting to get shut down, and only about 20 percent of the people actually showed up because people were starting to get scared.

 

So then after 176 days, you walk back out on stage in front of a real live audience. How amazing was that?

 

As soon as we got on stage, it was such a joy to be playing live music again. And at the historic Mother Church of country music. All that energy: from the fans, from the amps on the stage and from feeling the beat of the drums on your chest. In a way it felt like it had been 20 years since my last show, but in another sense it felt like me and the band were doing our thing like it was just yesterday when we’d played a show. And the band was tight, especially after not playing together for six months. I don’t think I even missed any words. I thought for sure I’d be messing up words left and right. It felt like we were only on stage for 10 minutes because it kind of flew by, but we actually played for about 90 minutes.

 

Did it feel different with a smaller crowd in front of you?

 

It was unique, for sure. Because normally when you’re playing for a real big crowd, you can’t pick out people individually when you’re singing. But this time, you could very much see the people in their individual groups. You could make eye contact. So it was definitely a lot different than a packed, full-house show. But you could tell they were happy to be out of the house and happy we were on stage. And I think that gives us all hope that we’ll be doing more of that in the future.

 

And you felt like everyone was in good hands with the Ryman?

 

The way the Ryman did everything is such a great blueprint for live music now. It allowed for live music and safety at the same time.

 

McCreery’s next scheduled tour stop isn’t until next year, when he plays the Riverwind Casino in Norman, OK on Jan. 22.

Even though he retains the distinction of being the first with a live audience, (I'm sure) Scotty would've loved a 'crowd' of 250 vs 125 fans. 🙂

NASHVILLE's historic RYMAN AUDITORIUM will double the amount of in-venue audience members for its upcoming show with BRETT YOUNG, TOMORROW (9/11). The event will mark the second show allowing a live audience as part of the RYMAN's livestream concert series, "Live at The RYMAN." The first show to welcome back a limited live audience was with SCOTTY MCCREERY last FRIDAY (9/4), with 125 audience members allowed (NET NEWS 9/1). There will be a total of 250 tickets available for YOUNG's performance.

The RYMAN has developed plans in partnership with the NASHVILLE PUBLIC HEALTH DEPARTMENT and VANDERBILT HEALTH to ensure the safety of guests, artists and staff. Operating plans include physically distanced in-venue “pod” seating, mandatory masks for all guests as well as RYMAN operations and production staff, designated restrooms, no food or beverage service (with the exception of a complimentary bottled water), temperature checks for all RYMAN staff and enhanced cleaning practices.

Been watching Brett's show.  He has a raspy kind of voice better suited to blues than country.  I only know a couple of songs....Mercy is the one I recognized right away.  He had has band members sing solos....not sure if that was just to help fill out his time slot...or whether he just wanted to reward them.

Scotty McCreery Reflects on ‘Really Sweet’ Performance at the Ryman [EXCLUSIVE]

Celebrity News9292Country Music News9292Exclusives9292Music News9292News | September 14, 2020

When Scotty McCreery took the stage at the Ryman Auditorium on Friday, September 4, it marked the first live show he had played since March — which ironically was also at the Ryman — due to COVID-19. After first announcing the six-week Live at the Ryman series would be a livestream event only, the historic venue allowed 125 people, socially-distanced, to watch the North Carolina native’s performance in person, and no one was happier to sing in front of people than Scotty.

“I’ve been missing that for for six months now,” Scotty told Everything Nash. “It’s what I love to do. And it’s the only thing I’ve known for almost a decade now. So, it was an exciting time getting the band back together. They’re my second family. I spend more time with them normally in a year than I do my real family. So, it was good seeing them playing live music again, having people in the audience. To not sing on a Facebook live or something. that was really sweet.”

In August, Scotty made the difficult decision to postpone his European tour until 2021. After planning the trip for so long, and hoping to take his wife, Gabi, with him, the delay was heartbreaking.

“They treated us so well last year. We got the chance to go over to the UK, and Germany as well.  I could not have been looking forward more to going over there, seeing their faces again, singing for them. They know all the words, to everything, so it was such a great time, but we postponed it. We’ve got dates already set for next year. I can’t wait for that.

“It’s just a weird year, where everything’s different,” he continued. “Some of our favorite things have been taken away from us, but you’ve got to lose a couple things now, and be smart about things now, so hopefully we can get back to doing that stuff sooner rather than later.”

In spite of not being able to tour this year, the American Idol alum insists he is doing okay, and is optimistic about the future.

“I’m doing all right,” Scotty said. “About as good as you can be this year. It’s been weird for us, and weird for everybody. But no complaints from us. We’re all healthy. It’s going okay. But, it’s been a weird year, and not being on the road this summer, for sure.”
