Scotty McCreery Meets Baseball Hall of Fame Legend Johnny Bench! (@ScottyMcCreery)

McCreery and Johnny Bench jpegMulti-Platinum-selling country music artist Scotty McCreery met Baseball Hall of Fame legend Johnny Bench at The Sixth Annual Scarlet and Gold Invitational, held at the River Landing Country Club in Wallace, North Carolina on Monday, Aug.17. All proceeds from the golf tournament benefited Hope For The Warriors®, a national nonprofit dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families.

Bench, who notably played for the Cincinnati Reds from 1967 to 1983 and is considered “Baseball’s Greatest Catcher,” was the celebrity host for the event along with former MLB infielder Doug Flynn. North Carolina-native McCreery performed a private concert for the tournament participants that evening.

The mission of Hope For The Warriors® is to enhance the quality of life for post-9/11 service members, their families, and families of the fallen who have sustained physical and psychological wounds in the line of duty. Hope For The Warriors® is dedicated to restoring a sense of self, restoring the family unit, and restoring hope for our service members and our military families.

Also on Aug.17, McCreery released his new single “Southern Belle,” which is available for purchase now and will impact country radio on Aug. 31. It is the first single from the Platinum-selling artist’s upcoming new album due out in early 2016. The up-tempo tune was written by Sean McConnell and Jason Saenz and produced by Frank Rogers.
