- fun faith fact! Scotty McCreery once kissed his cross after a meeting with Lady Gaga
Garner, NC's own Scotty McCreery won the hearts of America on American Idol. The then 17 year old appealed to the masses with his deep country baritone and boyish good looks. Through the show McCreery was never shy about his Christian faith, he was willing to sing gospel songs and visibly disturbed by the wild sexuality of pop star Lady Gaga. So much so that he felt the need to kiss his cross afterwards. He and his top competition Lauren Alana both talked publicly about their faith during the show.
