Scotty McCreery enjoyed what he described as a beautiful day in North Carolina on Tuesday after surviving a robbery at gunpoint early Monday morning. After tweeting on Monday that he and his friends are safe, but he couldn’t say anything to hinder the investigation, Scotty McCreery had remained silent on Twitter for the better part of Tuesday. By late afternoon, however, the country singer was feeling “thankful” and wanted to share that sentiment with his fans.

He tweeted:

Beautiful day here in NC. Got a lot to be thankful for ...

One can only imagine what Scotty McCreery must be feeling now that the shock of his ordeal is wearing off. On Monday morning, around 2:00 a.m., three suspects armed with guns entered the apartment where Scotty McCreery lives with friends while attending North Carolina State University.

Though the suspects got away with wallets, money and electronics, Scotty McCreery and his friends were left unharmed. Even so, being the victim of a crime is quite understandably upsetting. It seems from Scotty McCreery’s Twitter reflections on Tuesday that he is counting his blessings as anyone would after such a scary event.

Scotty McCreery will get a few days to rest up, but soon the American Idol winner will head back out on his “See You Tonight Tour.” According to his website, Scotty McCreery is scheduled to perform in Bakersfield, Calif. on May 9 before heading to Las Vegas on May 10.

Scotty McCreery’s “See You Tonight Tour” celebrates his top ten hit “See You Tonight” and album by the same name. “See You Tonight” is Scotty McCreery’s third studio album. Released in October of 2013, the album has climbed more slowly than his first release after winning American Idol in 2011, but has still seen steady sales. A Christmas album titled “Christmas with Scotty McCreery” was released between his two country music projects.
