Go Big

"Go Big or Go Home" is country star, Scotty McCreery's autobiography.  The book gives a brief account of his growing up years and then focuses on his American Idol time and career as a country singer.  Since most American Idol contestants and winners usually are eventually forgotten, McCreery's book is a little different in that he is one of the few that has maintained a successful career.  Just ask any teenage girl.  However, I am not a teen age girl, nor am I a country music listener, so I will be evaluating this book simply as an autobiography. 
McCreery is young, 22.  So this book is relatively short and doesn't have a lifetime of ups and downs.  It focuses on a regular teen kid who gets thrown into something huge and to him, wonderful.  He doesn't have any of the usual problems of the young and famous, so the book is mostly a fish out of water story.  It is written in the same style of speech that he has.  Accent, slang and all.  I would recommend this to any of his fans for sure, and even to some that are wanting to break into a music career of their own.  Not a bad book.  I received this book from in exchange for my honest review.
