The singer’s music video was shot on campus at his school, North Carolina State University — a lush and beautiful campus. Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Roman White, the ‘See You Tonight’ shoot appeared to be super relaxed and stress-free, thanks to McCreery’s laid-back personality and White’s talent and experience.
“It’s a cool concept, I’m glad that we’re shooting it here — at my college,” reveals the young country singer. “It’s a cool thing for me to be here, at home, doing it.”
This marks the first time he’s had his band in a music video, which McCreery says he was pumped about, and White joked with the band, “It’s important you don’t suck tonight.” McCreery shares that he loved working with White, saying, “He’s a funny dude, but he’s top of the line.”
When the singer wasn’t behind the mic, lip-syncing to his lyrics, he was the picture of poise, never looking harried or frustrated or shouting out demands. We should have known he’d handle everything with ease, as he brushed off a recent onstage fall with humor.
Although he’s only 19 years old (with a birthday on Oct. 9), McCreery’s maturity is well beyond his years. His sophomore album will be available on Oct. 15.
CNN featured American Idol winner Scotty McCreery in their “Impact Your World” video series for his contributions to helping kids in need, highlighting his recent visit to US99.5′s Blue Cross Blue Shield Performance Stage.
Scotty opens the clip saying, “I could have never imagined or prepared for what was going to happen to me.”
Since Scotty’s two favorite things are music and baseball, the RBI Program and MLB is a perfect fit for him. The charity is helping revitalize baseball for kids in the inner city, and his experience while growing up and learning how to persevere helps him connect with them.
