“American Idol” winner Scotty McCreery has burst onto the country scene after his “Idol” win, so it’s no surprise he was invited to the second annual CMA Country Christmas. One of the highlights of his appearance was his surprising a fan in the audience. The poor girl was so stunned she couldn’t even look at Scotty. Awww.

Scotty then took on Christmas classic “The First Noel,” which is a perfect song for his deep voice. The video below does not quite do it justice, but it was quite good. We’ll post better video when we can get it.

In his pre-show interview, McCreery says of the experience, “It’s incredible to be here. I watched it last year and to be here for the second show, it’s incredible … For me, they’ll be seeing me sing ‘The First Noel’ … it’s a special one to me because I grew up singing it in church.”
