Scotty McCreery has opened up about his path to success at such a young age, and says his biggest influence thus far has been his father.
Speaking with tasteofcountry.com, the American Idol winner says his father helped him find a love of music and taught him to focus on his passion.
"My dad is the guy who really taught me a lot about myself growing up. He has a job where he has to travel sometimes. He's always working hard at it. He's also the guy who taught me how to throw a baseball. I have two loves in life: singing and baseball. He was a pitcher growing up, and he was always out there with me, throwing with me at the field on off days when we weren't practicing," he explains.
"We were in the bullpens and practicing. He always said hard work will pay off, and whether that's baseball for me or singing now, it's the truth. You've got to put forth the effort to get back your results."
