Once upon a time major country music artist, Scotty McCreery, was just a 16-year-old from Garner, North Carolina with big Nashville dreams. McCreery's first stop on his journey to Nashville was Hollywood after nailing his audition on the tenth season of American Idol in 2011. 

With a pocketful of charm in his baggy jeans, McCreery immediately charmed the judges who could barely believe a boy of his age could possess such deep southern vocals. Idol judge Jennifer Lopez was won over immediately upon meeting McCreery telling him "I hope you can sing!"

McCreery auditioned with Josh Turner's "Your Man" as well as Travis Tritt's "Put Some Drive in Your Country" at Idol judge Steven Tyler's request who responded with a series of stunned profanity. 

"Dude love you. Love that you're a throw-back country guy singing low like that," says long time Idol judge Randy Jackson. 

His performance earned him a unanimous yes from all three judges and a golden ticket to Hollywood. Like a proper southern gentlemen, McCreery shakes their hands and exits as Lopez predicts rightfully he's on his way to the big time stating, "We discovered him...He'll be legendary."
