Scotty McCreery is a lifelong New England Patriots fan and will be rooting for them in Sunday’s Super Bowl. He comes by it honest, since his father Mike grew up in Maine and raised the young singer to love all New England sports teams.
Scotty scored a sweet gig performing for Kraft and the Patriots’ management team at their pre-Super Bowl event Thursday night near Phoenix. All of the fun began a couple of weeks ago when Scotty’s uncle scored two AFC playoff tickets in Foxboro. He and his Dad went and were invited to visit the field while the team was in the middle of pre-game warm-ups.
Scotty doesn’t want to leave the Seattle Seahawks out – he’s a fan and friend of Seahawks quarterback, Russell Wilson, a former North Carolina State student and has personally wished the QB good luck in the big game.
Scotty is planning on attending Sunday’s game, even though he flew to Nashville for his scheduled Grand Ole Opry appearance on Friday (January 30th).
