Triple Tigers recording artist Scotty McCreery joined Old Dominion’s Make It Sweet Tour last Friday (Nov. 1) in Tampa, Florida at the Yuengling Center on the campus of the University of South Florida. Judging by the cheers and applause, the North Carolina native was an immediate hit with the sold-out crowd. McCreery hit the stage soon after opening act Ryan Hurd finished his set to deliver an energetic 45-minute hit-packed show which included his current single “In Between” as well as his two No. 1 hits “Five More Minutes” and “This is It,” among others. Later that weekend, the tour moved across the state to perform two shows at the Saint Augustine Amphitheater on Nov. 2-3. All three shows this weekend were sold out.
