He went to Disney World!
“American Idol’s” Season 10 winner Scotty McCreery paid a visit to “The Happiest Place on Earth” on Monday, May 30, where he sang his hit single “I Love You This Big.” (The song just broke a Country chart record.)
A celebratory parade was held in McCreery’s honor at Disney’s Hollywood Studios theme park, where he sat with Mickey Mouse in a convertible sports car as he waved to fans. McCreery then performed “I Love You This Big” in front of “The American Idol Experience” attraction.
Before singing his debut single, the 17-year-old told the crowd the song “can be interpreted in so many different ways. You can think of it like a man talking to his woman singing ‘I love you, honey’ or like a little kid talking to their parents singing, ‘I love you this big, mommy.’ You can talk about it my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, when he was on the cross spreading his arms open and just saying ‘I love you that big.'”
McCreery also surprised guests when he made an unannounced appearance on stage at “The American Idol Experience” attraction, took a picture with Chewbacca and flirted with Minnie Mouse for a little bit. All in a day’s work for “Idol’s” latest winner.
