One of our favorite country artists, Scotty McCreery was our featured performer last week at WOKQ Sessions, produced by Newburyport Five Cents Savings Bank. As always, Scotty did not disappoint. He put on a very special performance for some very lucky listeners (you can check it out right here).

After his mini-concert, Scotty took time to meet his fans, take pictures and sign autographs. After that, we were able to catch up with him and have a little fun with a brand-new segment that we like to call... '60 seconds...with Scotty McCreery.'

This is one of the best parts about working in radio. It is great to be able to sit down with country artists and delve a bit deeper into their personal lives and find out their likes and dislikes. In the video below, you'll find out which judges and contestants he still keeps in touch with from his American Idol days and do you know Scotty has a favorite snack that he eats before going on stage? The reason he likes this specific kind of cracker may surprise you!

Make sure to pick up a copy of Scotty's latest album 'Seasons Change.' I think it's his best work yet.
