Scotty McCreery Has “Bucket-List Night” Performing Surprise Opening Gig for Garth Brooks

Scotty McCreery fulfilled a lifelong dream with a surprise performance before Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood’s sold-out show at the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls, S.D., on Sept. 22.

Scotty treated the 13,000 fans to an unannounced 30-minute set that included “See You Tonight,” “Five More Minutes” and more.

“It was a really incredible moment just being out there on that stage in front of a Garth crowd,” said Scotty. “I was about as nervous as I’ve been before a show, probably ever, but as soon as they introduced me, the crowd went nuts and that kind of eased my nerves.”

After his opening gig, Scotty found his seat in the crowd and watched Garth and Trisha’s headlining set.

“We got out there and did our thing, and then we got out there and watched Garth Brooks,” said Scotty. “What better night could you ask for? Can’t thank him enough and Trisha enough for having me out. That was definitely a bucket list night for me!”

Apparently, the G-Man was impressed with Scotty’s performance.
