In addition to performing during halftime of the Liberty Bowl in Memphis on Dec. 31, Scotty McCreery was presented with the AutoZone Liberty Bowl Outstanding Achievement Award for his continued service to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Scotty was recognized with the award during the President’s Gala on Dec. 30 at the Peabody Hotel in Memphis. Past recipients of the award include Elvis Presley, Alabama, Clint Black, LeAnn Rimes and more.
“Both my wife Gabi and I have visited St. Jude and have seen firsthand the amazing work that goes on there,” said Scotty. “I’m always glad to help St. Jude and spread the word about what they do.”
Over the past two years, Scotty has helped raise $50,000 for Jude through his participation on Celebrity Family Feud ($25,000 in 2018) and via a social media promotion with Bumble ($25,000 in 2019). Scotty has also participated in St. Jude’s “This Shirt Saves Lives” campaigns for several years.
