On a night when Lauren Alaina turned in a rousing performance at the York Fair, WGTY Operations Director Scott Donato announced that the other finalist from Season 10 of American Idol will be visiting the area as well.
Sometime in early October, Scotty McCreery will perform a private show at an undisclosed location in the area, Donato said.
About 200 fans will be in attendance, those who win tickets through a call-in contest that WGTY — Great Country 107.7 on the FM dial — will begin Monday morning.
Each hour between 6 a.m. and midnight, callers will have a chance to win a pair of tickets to the private show when they hear a Scotty McCreery medley play on the radio.
Donato said WGTY had tried to bring Scotty to the area in the past, but scheduling problems got in the way.
Scotty has been the most successful of the recent Idol winners in terms of album sales. His “Clear as Day” debut has gone platinum and is still number 39 on the Billboard country album chart, 49 weeks after its release.
