The American Idol champion celebrates both a very special time of year and his grandfather's memory with his favorite song from his Christmas album. 

When Scotty McCreery launched his debut album following his Idol win, he probably didn't know he was going to be following it up with a Christmas album the very next year. 

His first holiday album, Christmas With Scotty McCreery dropped in October 2012 and featured many classic holiday tunes while incorporating several originals. One of the original Christmas songs was an ode to his late grandfather, "Christmas In Heaven" which became one of his favorites.

"That’s by far my favorite song on the record,” McCreery exclaimed in an interview following the album's release. “I was actually writing a song a little bit like that about my grandfather before that song got sent to me.”

He even admits that he didn't have to hear much of it before he was certain he wanted it to be part of the album. 

"When you find the right song, you just have to go with it,” he said. “I heard it, and I didn’t have to listen to the first verse before I said ‘this one’s going on the record.’ It’s just a powerful song that’s got a great message to it. It touched me when I heard it, and hopefully – if people are missing someone at Christmas, it will touch them as well.”

McCreery gives a haunting live performance of his favorite holiday track to an overwhelmingly cheerful audience. You can tell how much this song means to him with how he strings the lyrics through the beautiful melody. 

The young country star has since seen tremendous success with his third studio album See You Tonight and the title single nailing a spot in the US Country Airplay Top Ten. 

Check out his amazing performance in the video below. 

LYRICS BELOW

December hasn’t changed
This town looks the same
They still light their tree in the city square

There’s red, white, and green shining everywhere
And I wish you were here
And I wonder

Is there snow falling down on the streets of gold
Are the mansions all covered in white

Are you singing with angels silent night
I wonder… what Christmas in Heaven is like

There’s a little manger scene
Down on third and main
I must’ve walked right by it a thousand times

But I see it now in a different light
Cause I know you are there

And I wonder
Are you kneeling with shepherds before him now
Can you reach out and touch his face

Are you part of that glorious holy night
I wonder… what Christmas in Heaven is like

Is there snow falling down on the streets of gold
Are the mansions all covered in white

Are you singing with angels silent night
I wonder… what Christmas in Heaven is like
