Scotty McCreery to Become First Country Artist to Host Virtual Concert Via Online Gaming Platform

Scotty McCreery will present a virtual concert via Club Cooee, an online chat community where members create avatars and interact socially. Club Cooee will host Scotty—transformed into a 3D avatar—in concert for a limited time over two weekends on April 24–26 and May 1–3.

“In this unsettling time where everyone has to be physically isolated because of COVID-19, it’s great to find a fun way to bring people together for some entertainment in the virtual world of Club Cooee,” said Scotty. “I never thought I’d become a game avatar, but I’m always up for trying something new. Looking forward to seeing everyone at Club Cooee!”

Club Cooee is available for free on Google Play and the Apple App Store. Once installed, the user will select a starter 3D avatar and nickname and then be taken to the app’s main dashboard where they will find Scotty-branded buttons. During the event, there will also be a special “Live Now!” button so users can directly join the virtual concert.

Scotty will be the first musical artist to perform in Club Cooee and the first country music artist ever to host a virtual concert in any gaming world.

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

Michael Ray Honors His Grandma Penny with a Tattoo

When you’re getting a permanent addition to you body, you want to make sure it means something, right?

Michael Ray has several tattoos, but each one has a personal connection to his life, “All my tattoos are either family based, religious based, or music based.”

He shares the story of one of his tattoos that honors his late grandmother, “So, my grandma, Penny, she passed away a couple of years ago, and I have a tattoo memory of my grandfather, and I wanted a tattoo for her. Her nickname was Penny, and I got a penny with my Grandmother’s birth year, 1942, on the date, on the inside of my arm.”

If he could change one thing about the tattoo…it would just be WHEN he got it. Turns out Michael got it on a show day, and it being on his arm, well, Michael admits “I started playing guitar that night…for the show, and it hurt like hell.”

But even with that night of pain Michael proudly says “it’s probably my favorite tattoo.”
