Scotty McCreery, Wife Gabi + More Country Couples Hitting the Town for Special Fan Date Nights
Scotty McCreery and his wife, Gabi, will be hitting the town for a once-in-a-lifetime double date with some very lucky country music fans.
The female-driven social networking app Bumble has enlisted the McCreerys for its Country Couples for a Cause campaign, along with Carly Pearce and Michael Ray, Chris Lane and Lauren Bushnell and Kane Brown and Katelyn Brown. Four winners and their dates will get to hit the town for a double date with one of the country couples, who will plan the ultimate date night experience for their fans.
McCreery met the former Gabi Dugal in kindergarten, and they began dating about seven years ago when they were both seniors at Garner High School in Garner, N.C., around the time McCreery won Season 10 of American Idol and launched his music career. She has been featured in several of his music videos, and they often give fans glimpses into their private world.
“Gabi and I have shared moments from our life together with our fans through social media, music videos and more so they can know us as real people," Scotty McCreery observes. "Partnering with Bumble is another great way to evolve that connection. We make a point to plan special dates often where we can enjoy being together and reconnect as husband and wife away from the craziness of what we both do in our outside lives. You have to work at keeping that relationship alive and growing, and that’s our biggest piece of advice for all the couples who are meeting through Bumble."
Bumble is also committed to donating $25,000 to the charity of each couple's choice. Pearce and Ray support the Ryan Seacrest Foundation, Lane and Bushnell support JDRF, the Browns support Boys & Girls Clubs of America and the McCreerys support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Fans interested in entering to win a double date through Country Couples for a Cause can enter via the Bumble app beginning Wednesday (July 24). Applicants must be 18 years and older.
