Scotty McCreery took a break from his first headlining tour to perform at the Sweet 16 birthday party for Sadie Robertson of Duck Dynasty fame. After the party, Sadie tweeted, “This boy made my birthday the best day of my life! So thankful that he came down for my party!”
The day before the party, which took place in West Monroe, Louisiana, Scotty also got stuck in the mud in a truck with Sadie’s brother, John Luke Robertson, and enjoyed the legendary home cooking of Kay Robertson.
Scotty said, “The first time I met Sadie and John Luke was at the Opry in Nashville. I saw her tweet that said she was in Nashville, so I said, ‘Hey, you want to come to the Opry?’ I’ve watched the show since season one and we had exchanged tweets before.”
Scotty and Sadie talked about her upcoming birthday during their Opry visit, and a few phone calls later, he was confirmed to perform at the “Redneck Red Carpet” party, held under a tent at a vineyard on June 17th.
Scotty added, “I texted her before the party and asked if she had any song requests and she said as long as I played ‘See You Tonight’ that she would be happy because that is one of her favorites right now, which is really cool. We kept it country. Willie and John Luke came onstage and we sang ‘Man of Constant Sorrow.’ We had a good ol’ time!”
Scotty also stayed at Sadie’s parents’ house, Korie and Willie Robertston, the night of the party.
Scotty said, “I like the fact that they are who they say they are; they are who they look they are on the TV show. They are good, normal folks who like to have fun. It’s really cool for me being so young and being in the public eye to have friends like John Luke and Sadie who are in the same boat. I am in an adult business and always around adults, so it’s nice to have friends who are in the spotlight and around my same age.”
Pictures of Sadie’s birthday party are featured in the current issue of Us Weekly magazine, which is on newsstands now.
Scotty continues to work on his second studio album, which is set for release later this year.
The project’s debut single, “See You Tonight,” is currently climbing the country charts.
