This video of Scotty McCreery and his mom surfaced in 2015 of the two singing at church on Easter Sunday, and it’s still a favorite. He clearly has not forgotten his roots!
They sang “New Again,” originally done by Brad Paisley and Sara Evans for the Passion of the Christ soundtrack.
From The Boot:
The American Idol winner has always been vocal about his faith, even in his days on the singing competition show. McCreery was known to sport a cross necklace and told the audience, “I’ve got to thank the Lord first; He got me here.” Even though he is young, at just 21 years of age, the “See You Tonight” singer is incredibly bold about what he believes.
“I’m not ashamed [of my faith], but I know that everyone doesn’t agree with me,” says McCreery. “I think especially in the country music world, if there’s anyone that’s going to accept it, it’ll be them.”
However, McCreery knows that his faith isn’t welcomed with open arms by everyone, and he’s realistic about that fact.
“When you’re out there talking about your faith and what you believe in, you’ll face some backlash,” McCreery admits. “But mostly, I’ve received support.”
