Scotty McCreery Pays Tribute to Conway Twitty at the Grand Ole Opry With ‘Hello Darlin” Cover [WATCH]

Scotty McCreery proved on American Idol that he can really sing — and he showed off his exceptional talent at the Grand Ole Opry with a cover of “Hello Darlin'” by the legendary Conway Twitty.

The song, released in 1970 as the first single and title track of Twitty’s 17th record, became the No. 1 tune of the year. While Twitty would often open his concerts with “Hello Darlin’,” McCreery chose to close his time at the Opry with the hit — and it’s the type of performance fans will want to watch again and again.

As he launches into the smooth song in the video above, the audience begins cheering, excited for what’s to come. McCreery’s deep, rich voice is the perfect fit for Twitty’s gold-certified hit.

“That’s Conway Twitty, y’all,” McCreery says at the end of the song, to a rousing round of applause. “Thank you so much, Grand Ole Opry, y’all have a great night.”

The year 2015 will be a busy one for McCreery. The young singer is planning a new record, which he says will be “pure country,” due out in the third or fourth quarter of 2015. Plus, he’ll join Rascal Flatts on their Riot Tour 2015 as a special guest. We can only hope that “Hello Darlin'” will come up during those dates!
