NASHVILLE, TENN. – (Sept. 2, 2015) – Country music artist Scotty McCreery has been a strong supporter of charitable causes close to his heart, such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This month in honor of the Mercury Nashville / 19 / Interscope recording artist, the Scotty McCreery Fan Club has created “The Southern Belles,” a team named after his new single, “Southern Belle,” to participate in the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer in Nashville on Sept. 26 at Edwin Warner Park at 8:00 AM -- and they are asking their fellow fans to join them.

Anyone who wants to join “The Southern Belles” can visit to sign up to walk with the team, donate money to St. Jude for the fight against childhood cancer, or both. Each person who donates will be entered in a drawing for a McCreery prize pack. More information can also be found at
As part of Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, St. Jude will be holding Walk/Runs all over the nation on Sept. 26. The Nashville event has a goal to raise $210,000 for the cause, and “The Southern Belles” are excited to help the hospital reach its goal.
“I’ve always said I have the greatest fans in the world, and it makes me both happy and proud to see them create ‘The Southern Belles’ as a way of raising funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said McCreery.  “St. Jude performs miracles regularly for children from all walks of life. I am truly honored and thankful that my fans want to support such a worthwhile organization in my name.”
