As if two lives couldn’t change any more, they are certainly about to. On Friday, June 10, two of American Idol’s most recent alumni, Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina, will make their debut on the Opry stage. Just last week McCreery was named the 10th season winner of American Idol with Lauren Alaina finishing right behind him. Both are interested in a career in country music which they will kick off with a debut at the Grand Ole Opry. Fans can see McCreery and Alaina perform alongside Randy Travis and Billy Ray Cyrus at the June 10 show. Click here for tickets.
McCreery and Alaina will also join the star-studded line-up of players who have come together to support the fight against cancer in the 21st annual City of Hope Celebrity Softball Challenge on Saturday, June 11. McCreery and Alaina will join previously announced artists including Vince Gill, Dierks Bentley, David Nail, and numerous others to raise money for the City of Hope’s life-saving research, treatment and education programs. The Celebrity Softball Challenge is an official part of the 2011 CMA Music Festival and has raised more than $2 million in its 21 year history. To purchase tickets, visit www.ticketmaster.com.
