Scotty McCreery Channels Ed Sheeran for ‘Shape of You’ Cover [Watch]
As Scotty McCreery headed out on his Seasons Change Tour this past weekend, most fans expected that he would play hits like “Five More Minutes” and “The Trouble with Girls” ...and definitely his current single, “This Is It.”
However, it's safe to say most did not expect him to do a hit by pop sensation Ed Sheeran.
But that’s exactly what he did on his San Antonio tour stop at the Aztec Theatre, when he performed the smash “Shape of You.” Showing off some major attitude as well as impressive vocals, McCreery seemed to enjoy a break from the usual by adding the pop song into his traditional country music repertoire.
“After planning the Seasons Change Tour for so long, it was exciting to finally begin,” says McCreery in a recent press release about the trek, which also includes openers such as Jimmie Allen and Heather Morgan. “The fans at the first three dates in Texas were amazing and really brought out the best in me and my band. We can’t wait for the next shows!”
Over the weekend, McCreery also celebrated the fact that his video “This Is It” had surpassed 22 million views on YouTube. The video showcases footage from McCreery’s wedding to longtime girlfriend Gabi Dugal.
Fans will recall that McCreery’s current album Seasons Change debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Country Album Chart back in March. Next up for McCreery is a stop on Friday (Dec. 7) at The Myth in St. Paul, Saturday (Dec. 8) at the Egyptian Room in Indianapolis and (Sunday) Dec. 9 at the House of Blues in Chicago.
