Get ready to hear some wisdom from Si – you can expect stories like M. Night Comealong and no, you cannot buy a ticket to this cruise on “Greg’s List”. Want some tips on duck hunting or to learn how to blow a duck call? Then you will enjoy hearing from the guys in the Duck Call Room.

Scotty McCreery

Since becoming American Idol’s youngest male winner in 2011, as well as the show’s first country male winner, Garner, NC native Scotty McCreery quickly emerged as country music’s most successful new artist.

McCreery’s first studio album Clear As Day, debuted at No.1 on the Billboard Top 200 and Top Country Albums charts, making him the youngest man in history to open at the top of the all-genre chart with a debut release. It also garnered the highest sales of any country solo album released last year, held the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top Country Albums chart for six weeks and earned Platinum status in just thirteen weeks.

Scotty won New Artist of the Year at both the 2011 American Country Awards and the 2012 Academy of Country Music Awards. He also won the USA Weekend Breakthrough Video of the Year for “The Trouble with Girls” at the 2012 CMT Music Awards. McCreery was ranked No.1 on Billboard’s list of Top New Country Artists for 2011 also earned the No. 4 spot on Billboard’s 2012 list of the Top 21 Under 21. Scotty spent most of 2012 opening for Brad Paisley’s Virtual Reality Tour 2012.

Scotty has continued to perform and record while pursuing an undergraduate degree at N.C. State University.

“I'm pumped to be joining my friends the Robertsons on this cruise. There will be a lot of fun things happening. Looking forward to singing on the ship!”

Mac Powell

To most of the world Mac Powell is well known as frontman for the Grammy winning Christian rock band Third Day. He’s been inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame, performed on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, won 26 Gospel Music Association Dove Awards, scored more than two dozen hit singles and earned countless other accolades, but as friends and family will attest, one of the industry’s most acclaimed rockers has always been just a country boy at heart. So naturally when he decided to step out and record his first solo project, it’s a country album.

“Like just about everybody else in the south, I grew up listening to country music,” Powell says, “and it was a big part of shaping me musically. I think that’s pretty evident in Third Day music. The influence has always been there.” Powell’s warm, distinctly textured vocals have always anchored Third Day’s award-winning sound, and the soulfulness that propelled dozens of Christian rock hits finds a comfortable new home in the country format.

Making country music comes naturally to Powell, who was raised in tiny Clanton, Alabama. Scenes from his rural upbringing parallel the kind of country fun typically displayed in a Luke Bryan or Jason Aldean video. “I lived on a dirt road not too far from Lake Mitchell,” Powell recalls. “My parents sang and played the acoustic guitar. We would just go down and have campfires and sing all the time. That was a big part of me growing up. It was a small town and they didn’t have much when I lived there. I joke and say Russia had a McDonalds before Clanton.”

Powell has already accomplished more than most musicians do in a lifetime, but getting to record his first country album is a dream come true. “When you’ve had something in your heart for so long and finally it’s come to fruition, it’s an exciting time.” Recording a country album is a new adventure for Powell, yet in some ways it feels like coming home for the blue-eyed singer/songwriter. “When you think about country music, you think about home,” he says. “You think about family and friends and having a good time. You think about those things that are important to you. Country music feels right and it just feels like life to me.”
