Multi-Platinum-selling country music sensation Scotty McCreery returned to his roots earlier this week when he taped an episode of the Farewell Season of “American Idol.” For three days, the Season Ten champion mentored two of the Top 24 contestants (their names cannot be revealed at this time) and shared lessons learned from both his experience on the iconic television show and in his ACM and CMT Award-winning career. Much to the excitement of the studio audience, the entertainer also performed duets with both singers. “American Idol,” featuring McCreery, along with five other returning Idols, will air next Thursday, February 11 at 8:00 PM ET (7:00 PM CT) on the FOX Television Network.

"I remember how important it was to me during my time on 'Idol' to meet and learn from all the great artists who visited the set and offered their advice," said McCreery. "I was proud to be able to come back and offer whatever guidance I could to my two talented contestants. This is their season and their show. I was there to help them shine...and I believe they both did!"

McCreery is on the road next week performing concerts on Feb. 12 at the Canton Palace Theater in Canton, Ohio; Feb. 13 at the Secrest in Zanesville, Ohio; and Feb. 14 at the River City Casino in St. Louis, Missouri. He will release his first book, Go Big or Go Home: The Journey Toward the Dream, on May 3. The book is available now for pre-sale at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and
