Scotty McCreery to Headline Whiskey Jam in Nashville

Scotty McCreery is playing a show in Nashville, joined by several other artists. The American Idol alum will headline Whiskey Jam, held in the parking lot of Losers Bar and Grill on June 6, where he will be joined by Brian Kelley, Tyler Farr, Morgan Evans and more for a night of unforgettable music.

The show serves as the kick-off to a full week of nonstop music, as CMA Fest returns, after a two-year break due to the pandemic.

“Looking forward to headlining Whiskey Jam on Monday, June 6 in Nashville, kicking off the week for CMA Music Festival,” McCreery shared on Facebook. “Great lineup of performers! Who’s coming out?”

McCreery seems poised to have his fifth consecutive No. 1 hit, with “Damn Strait.”  The song, currently in the Top 10, is from his latest Same Truck album. “Damn Strait” is his tribute to his musical idol, George Strait. McCreery traveled to Gruene, Texas, to shoot the video in Gruene Hall, which is where Strait famously got his start performing.

“The label is always happy to do it right there in Nashville and keep costs down.,” McCreery told The Houston Chronicle. “But for this particular song, there’s no other place to shoot this video. It just felt right. And you could kind of feel the aura of George there.”

“Damn Strait” is one of only two songs that McCreery did not write for Same Truck, a 12-track, deeply personal record that the North Carolina native poured his heart and soul into creating.

“I had the time to really sit back and reflect, and think about things that are important to me, really for the first time, since I was 15 or so,” McCreery told Everything Nash. “I had that time to do that. I think that put me in that mindset for writing some of these songs, and the perspective in some of these songs. My previous albums were very much more looking ahead. This one’s being grateful and looking back, and taking it all in.”

McCreery will also perform as part of CMA Fest on the Chevy Riverfront Stage on Sunday, June 12, at 4:45. He will also perform at the Grand Ole Opry on June 9. The Whiskey Jam show is free.
