Scotty McCreery is taking part in a fundraiser event called Big Night In for the Arts which benefits arts programming, initiatives for equity in the arts, and artist/arts organizations’ relief in various counties in Scotty's native North Carolina. The regional fundraiser will be broadcast on Raleigh NBC affiliate WRAL-TV on March 11th at 7 p.m. ET.

He said, “I cannot imagine my life without the arts. Just like so many others, I started playing the guitar at an early age and began writing my own songs. I was in choral groups in school and performed in a musical in high school. We all benefit from the arts. They inspire us, enrich our lives, help us to connect, help us to feel, help us to dream, and help us to learn more about each other and the world. I am happy to lend my support to the arts community in my hometown and surrounding area.”
