Scotty McCeery, yes the guy who won American Idol season 10, was LIVE in our studio Thursday afternoon.

Watch the video above to see him do an acoustic performance ahead of his show at Summerfest.

In 2011, America fell in love with McCreery, then a shy 17-year-old boy with a wide smile, preternaturally deep voice and a love of faith, family and his hometown of Garner, N.C..

But that boyish image is merely a fond memory now that he’s turning 20.

While the core of who he is and what he stands for remains the same, his strong voice has deepened as he has grown into a seasoned, confident performer.

His impressive evolution is immediately evident on his second studio album, See You Tonight, which artfully captures who he is now, both as an artist and as a man.

Scotty McCreery performs at the Harley-Davidson Roadhouse at Summerfest on Thursday, June 26th at 9:30 p.m.
