Today, Feb. 1, NBC will air the P&G and Wal-Mart “Tribute to American Legends of the Ice.” Season 10 American Idol winner, Scotty McCreery, was the featured artist for this show, which was recorded back in December at the Izod Center in New Jersey. The network likely delayed airing the special until now to build excitement for the upcoming winter Olympics, set to begin Feb. 6.
Using his Facebook and Twitter pages this morning, McCreery told his fans to check out today’s broadcast:

The P&G and Wal-Mart “Tribute to American Legends of the Ice” features appearances and performances from ice skating legends, along with new faces, including Max Aaron, Brian Boitano, Sasha Cohen, Gracie Gold, Scott Hamilton, Sarah Hughes, Nancy Kerrigan, Tara Lipinski, Evan Lysacek, Ashley Wagner, Paul Wylie, and many more. Kristi Yamaguchi and Michael Weiss also served as the show’s hosts.
Scotty McCreery is currently out on his See You Tonight Tour 2014, which will make stops throughout the United States and may even go international. McCreery is most excited for the stop he is slated to make later this month – on Feb. 18, he will perform at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville. According to his official website, Scotty says:
"It has been a dream of mine to play the Ryman,” he says. “It is the mother church of country music and it is a true honor.”
