Go Big Or Go Home Review



Go Big or Go Home narrates Scotty’s journey from a kid imitating Elvis on the school bus to 30 million across America tuning in to see him win Season 10 of “American Idol”. Now as he completes his ground-breaking fourth album, Scotty shares a glimpse of where he came from and the impact his faith, family and friends have had on a humbled guy who keeps asking “why me?”

Go Big or Go Home is the story of a kid with country songs in his soul. The special thing with Scotty McCreery, however, is that he has this God-given ability to sing those tunes the exact way they should be sung. Daring to enter the limelight at such a young age, Scotty finds himself embraced by the nation, and even overseas, as he competes on “American Idol”. This is his journey from his North Carolina roots to winning America’s most popular singing competition and launching a musical career he had always dreamt about.


have to say I was pretty surprised to see a book by Scotty McCreery. I mean he is only in his early 20s. But like he said right off the bat – this book is not an autobiography – it is about his journey from a small town “Clayton Idol” contestant to an American Idol winner. We get to see a side of Scotty that most of us did not know – from the turtle in the tub incident to how he felt when he was held up at gun point with his college buddies, to the full out prank wars he has on the road.

It was nice to see how he has stayed grounded, always going “home” for important events. The love and respect he has for his parents and sister, as well as, his religious beliefs, are shown throughout the book. We also get to see a little of his very personnel life with his home town girlfriend.

I was a huge fan when he was on Idol and now I am glad to have read that he is out there doing what he loves – and doing is very well.

I received this book from BLB in return of my honest opinion.



  1. I hope he can maintain his faith and connection to home and family. So many who start out with good values fall so far when fame and wealth enter their lives.

      Hopefully he has the hang of it so far. He has been out of American Idol for 5 years now and I sure hope, like you said, he can maintain his faith. 🙂
