Go Big or Go Home

Go backstage with Scotty McCreery! At 21, this former American Idol winner has already sold 2.5 million albums; released two top 10 hits; and toured alongside country music superstars. Now he turns off the spotlights and shares about what inspires him, life as he chooses to live it, and the lessons he’s learned so far. 240 pages, hardcover from Zondervan.

Go Big or Go Home shows how one person can follow their dreams, no matter what it looks like ahead or what others may think/say. Scotty McCreery tells of his true-life experience of reaching for the stars, without compromising his faith or who he is inside. The human side of him is displayed as he makes mistakes and stumbles just like the rest of us. He pushes forward, meets many famous people; while staying true to himself and Jesus.
I admire how he does not compromise in singing a song that is totally contrary to who he is and who Jesus is, even if that means he could lose his chance at completing his dream. Through that he is rewarded with his dream and much more. I recommend Go Big or Go Home.
