Everyone knows that Scotty McCreery can sing, but few know he can play baseball (like a pro). Scotty managed to continue playing baseball for his high school team while on tour for American Idol. That makes Scotty Double-y talented. He’s combined his two favorite hobbies for summer’s best concert tour- Baseball and Country. Scotty played for a packed crowd this memorial day weekend at Turner field, he even threw out the first pitch. His next concert date is tonight in Chattanooga,Tennessee for the minor league Baseball team The Lookouts. There will also be a fireworks show.
The judges of NBC’s The Voice have grown ridiculously in fame since the start of the season.

It’s rare that country music stars make the cover of a rock magazine but Blake’s charm, whit and good looks have made him a Superstar.
If you’ve never seen The Voice, it resembles shows like American Idol. Contestants with vocal talent audition to be voted as the next musical Great. What makes The Voice completely different is that the auditions are blind. The 4 teams (Blake, XTINA, CeeLo, Adam) have to select and convince the singer to be on their team. Each Judge must select 12 contestants to form an unstoppable team. The best of the 4 teams takes home the trophy. Last year, (Season 1) Adam Levine took home the Grand Prize.
