North Carolina Museum Features American Idol Winner Scotty McCreery Exhibit

There’s just something odd about an 18-year-old being featured in a museum. Aren’t museums for old things? Weird. Anyway, a North Carolina museum thinks that American Idol Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery is historic enough to feature him in their museum.

The N.C. Museum of History is showcasing the following:

  • The outfit — black leather jacket, jeans, T-shirt and cross necklace — that McCreery wore when he sang his final duet, “Live Like You Were Dying,” on “American Idol” with country superstar Tim McGraw at the Nokia Theatre, Los Angeles, Calif., on May 25, 2011.
  • The lyrics sheet for “Live Like You Were Dying.” The sheet indicates the individual parts: “S” for Scotty and “T” for Tim.
  • The gold record presented to McCreery by Mercury Records for his first album, Clear as Day, which sold over 500,000 copies in the seven months after his “American Idol” victory.
  • The backstage pass used by McCreery’s mother, Judy McCreery, on May 24 and 25, 2011, for the “American Idol” final rehearsal and show at the Nokia Theatre, Los Angeles, Ca. (Source)

The N.C. Museum of History Scotty McCreery exhibit will run though Jan. 4.

What’s Scotty up to now? He’s currently a Freshman at North Carolina State University, is playing the N.C. State Fair and working on his second album.
