Bonus Review: Go Big or Go Home

 

 

Go Big or Go Home by Scotty McCreery isn’t exactly an autobiography.  It’s more like what you’d expect if you sat down and talked with Scotty over coffee and had someone type up everything he said.  It’s the story of his childhood, American Idol ride, faith, and more.  If you or someone you know is a Scotty McCreery fan, I highly recommend this book.  And if you aren’t a fan, I suggest you read the book–you may just become one.  I really liked how down to earth Scotty seemed throughout the book.  He told funny stories; he told sad stories.

 

I’ve also read several other books co-written with Travis Thrasher, and while I am starting to notice similarities, I thought he helped the book flow smoothly and hold my interest.  I couldn’t put this book down; it was like having a conversation in which I could both get to know Scotty more and feel as if I was going behind the scenes of American Idol! This would make a great gift for country music fans.  It’s an encouraging read, to see someone stand up for what they believe in, and even read gut-honest stories about when he didn’t, but he went back and apologized.

 

Thank you so much to Zondervan publishers and their Book Look bloggers program with Thomas Nelson for providing me with a copy of this book to read and review.  All opinions are my own and were not required to be positive, nor were they affected by anything other than the book itself (and being a fan of the author). 🙂
